Our CSR initiatives

Esperluette RSE
As a family business, we have always been committed to maintaining a strong social and environmental conscience.

Right from the creation of our first site in Gennevilliers, the notions of well-being and eco-design have been at the heart of our concerns.
Our arrival in Chartres, with the integration of our new premises, is the culmination of this desire to combine well-being in the workplace with energy efficiency.
Our new premises feature spacious, light-filled workspaces where every member of our team can work in a serene atmosphere conducive to communication.
In order to share with everyone the values we uphold around Sustainable Development and Corporate Social Responsibility, we published our CSR Charter in 2019, which we then reinforced in 2021 with the publication of our annual CSR report.
In addition, our values, challenges, actions, objectives and progress indicators are assessed every year via the Ecovadis and CDP platforms.
Our CSR charter and report can be downloaded by clicking on the links below..
CSR Awards
Through two voluntary processes, ECOVADIS and CDP, we have undertaken an annual assessment of the different areas of action in our CSR approach. They reflect our commitment and efforts over the last few years in the context of our Sustainable Development approach.

Ecovadis Sustainability Rating

Ecovadis 2023

85/100

Since its inception in 2007, EcoVadis has become the largest and most trusted sustainability and Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) rating organization, creating a global network of over 130,000 rated companies.
Our company approached ECOVADIS in 2015 to carry out its very first assessment, achieving the SILVER level in its first year. 
In 2019, after 4 long years of work with our partners and stakeholders, we reached the GOLD level, and in 2021, two years later, we reached the PLATINUM level, placing our company in the top 1% of companies in our sector for our CSR commitment.
The score of 85/100 obtained for 2023 is thus a true recognition of the efforts and commitment made by our company to achieve growth that is reasoned, respectful of people and the environment.

Disclosure Insight Action

CDP Disclosure Insight Action
The CDP is a non-profit charitable organization that manages the global information system enabling investors, companies, cities, states and regions to manage their impact on the environment.

We joined the approach proposed by the CDP in 2016, the year from which we began the assessment of our SCOPES 1, 2 and 3, and set our first targets for reducing our CO2 emissions.
Thanks to the efforts of all our partners and employees, in 2023 we achieved CDP's (A-) "Leadership" level for the first time, propelling our company into the ranks of the most committed companies in our industry. We are very proud of this achievement, which is the culmination of the long work begun since 2016.
