Our CSR commitments

For more than 150 years, we have been helping to shape society's transitions, providing our expertise in risk management (technical, human, environmental and digital) and supporting our customers to enable them to do business safely.

Our Corporate Social Responsibility commitments and our roadmap are in line with our historical DNA of supporting energy, ecological, social and digital transitions.

Our 5

social and environmental commitments

Our CSR strategy aims to accelerate and concretize the Group's actions around 4 areas of commitment:


  • Ensuring safer progress, by promoting health, safety and well-being at work for all our employees.

  • Promoting more collective progress, by raising awareness and training our teams in the challenges of climate change and sustainable transitions, so that they can play an active role.

  • Building more sustainable progress, by measuring, monitoring and acting to realistically reduce the greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions footprint of our activities.

  • Defend shared progress, accessible to all, by reinforcing equality, integration and professional development for our employees within the Group.

"Without trust and security, no successful sustainable transitions! "
