Our development ambition, long-term vision and transmission to future generations are at the heart of the strategy of this independent family group. From the beginning, this has driven the Group to be a leading responsible player in social, societal and environmental matters
The history of the company is intrinsically linked to a responsible vision for the conduct of its activities. « CSR is in the DNA of our Group. Our actions are grounded in the long term. We know that our family will continue to drive the business, and that it must also bear the consequences of our actions today. » Says Audrey Prou, Managing Director of the Group.
Whereas responsible vision has been at the heart of the Group's daily actions from the outset, the formalisation of CSR as a strategic axis in its own right is more recent.
In 2016, the Group wished to enhance and structure all transversal actions and initiatives into a more comprehensive and strategically integrated project. Accompanied by a firm specialising in sustainable development, SERIS then launched a comprehensive analysis of its practices and formalised its own CSR approach centred around the company's mission: « To participate in making the world a safer place ». Although human consideration is at the heart of the project, the Group's strategy is based on 7 key principles shared by all the Group's subsidiaries in France and abroad.
The implemented action plan led to the adherence to the principles of the Global Compact in 2017 and the drafting of several founding documents, based on the responsible approach of the Group, including: CSR Policy, Environmental Charter and the Charter for Responsible Purchasing.
Driven at the highest level by Audrey Prou, the objective of this approach is to equip the whole Group with responsible practices and encourage its employees, customers and partners to commit themselves to human rights and employment laws, to respect the environment and to fight against corruption.
