Social Responsibility

Corporate Social Responsibility

Brickyard believes that the beautiful things on earth should be preserved. We are concerned about our society and how vulnerable places are affected by pollution and overpopulation. In addition, the welfare of people, both inside and outside our organization, grab our attention. Brickyard seizes every means to show its social involvement in these issues. Corporate Social Responsibility is becoming increasingly intertwined in our business, but the awareness was already here.

Accredited Learning Company

Waysis, the holding company Brickyard is part of, consists of a number of organizations that have a more or less active policy in traineeships and/or work placements. By providing young people (where possible from lower social positions) an opportunity to gain practical working experience, we prep the colleagues of the future. With the expected expansion in the coming years, especially in services , there will also an increase in traineeship opportunities, our organization will continue to play a supporting part in a society where everyone deserves an equal chance.


Even in the previous century the environment was already an important subject for Brickyard. Since the early 90s we have an active waste separation policy. In product selection we are keen on choosing products which meet the "cradle to cradle" principle and we try to reduce our energy consumption as much as possible. This policy has evolved over the years and will always remain under critical supervision and adjusted if necessary. In the meantime this resulted in the environmental certification ISO 14001:2015.

Sustainable Procurement

Following the policies of the government, provinces, municipalities and water boards, Brickyard sharpened its policy regarding the sustainable procurement. Brickyard not only tries to expand its existing policy in this area, but also it tries seamlessly integrate supply and demand. The publication of the Dutch "Sustainable Public Procurement Manual" and the "Guide to Social Return purchasing by municipalities" served as the basis for our procurement and CSR policies.

Social Return

Since several years Brickyard outsources work on to the labor development and reintegration company of nine cooperating municipalities in the Zaanstreek-Waterland region called Baanstede (website in Dutch). Employees of Baanstede have a distance to the labor market and are trained and guided to a place in the regular labor market. For Brickyard this consists mainly of (simple) electrical production work products and services from Brickyard.
