On strong foundations
Social, societal and environmental responsibility is essential to our success and performance. We are proud to be part of the United Nation’s Global Compact Agreement, which provides practical direction to help drive our global approach and local initiatives across the entire group.
Our Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) strategy is based on three pillars: caring for our people, collaborating with our stakeholders and controlling our impact on the environment.
1. People first
We put our employees at the heart of our corporate project. This means commitment to ensure they are offered the opportunity to develop their skills and expertise. We actively promote diversity within the company, with a strong focus on gender equality and disability inclusion. We also strive to ensure the best working conditions with priority given to well-being in the workplace.
In 2017, we celebrated the 10th anniversary of our “Handicap Mission” initiative
2. We create the conditions for responsible growth in collaboration with our stakeholders
We recognise that regular dialogue with our external stakeholders is essential for achieving project success. This collaboration allows us to detect emerging trends and needs in order to improve our service offering, policies, processes or solutions. We therefore work closely with clients, partners, suppliers to ensure continuous progress across all our activities.
In 2017, 20% of our projects were dedicated to eco-design
3. We control our impact on the environment
We have a dual objective of reducing the ecological footprint of the group and that of the clients we partner with. We deploy eco-responsible solutions on our development projects. In house, this translates into policies aimed at limiting our carbon footprint across our facility management and mobility, as well as initiatives to support positive changes in working behaviour (e.g. waste-sorting, printing).
In 2017, we lowered our carbon footprint per employee to 0.83% (down 4.6% year-on-year)
