ISO 26000 guidelines were retained to boost our social and environmental responsibility efforts. In taking this approach, we wish to:

  • involve our staff members in innovative and ecological projects;
  • improve our practices by analyzing the impact of our activities and decisions on society and the environment at all levels of our business;
  • facilitate exchanges with our stakeholders and making them aware of the challenges of CSR.


CSR deployment is overseen by our CSR Orientation and Piloting Committee.

Our CSR* practices have been rated as “Excellent” by ECOCERT 26000 in 2013, 2014, and 2015. This welcomed recognition of how far we have come has boosted us in seeking to take our commitments and actions even further.
