- The Groupe's Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) policy has been tightened up
The regulatory framework of the French NRE law has led the Groupe to enhance its CSR reporting which now includes a dedicated chapter in the 2012 Registration Document. Over the past year, considerable effort has been put into formalizing new procedures aimed at facilitating non-financial reporting, a task that has included input from the Financial and HR Departments within the networks, corporate legal, the Re:Sources team, and the staff at head office. CSR reports are now audited and certified by independent auditing firms, and it has thus taken a big step forward, after three years (2009, 2010, 2011) during which the scope was defined and structured.
The four main pillars of this policy (Social, Society, Governance & Economics, and Environment) structure the work carried out within the Groupe by the CSR Department, in close conjunction with the networks and agencies. The number of indicators is virtually unchanged since 2011, the emphasis being placed on the quality and traceability of the information.
