We have chosen AFNOR Certification’s Committed CSR label to affirm our contribution to sustainable development. This label is very demanding: more than 50 criteria are examined according to the ISO 26000 standard and the Sustainable Development Goals.
More than a self-declaration or online questionnaire, the Committed CSR label is awarded following an on-site assessment conducted over [1/2/several days] every 18 months. We provide an independent assessor with objective evidence that we are managing the social, environmental and economic impacts of our activities. It challenges us and encourages us to improve. Employee representatives at all levels of our organization are interviewed, as well as external stakeholders. This label signals the completeness and coherence of our approach to progress. It is also a sign that we have identified our stakeholders and established a dialogue with them to understand and respond to their expectations.
The 7 areas questioned by the Committed CSR label are the 7 core issues of ISO 26000 (governance, human rights, labor relations and conditions, environment, fair practices, consumer issues, communities and local development).
Since July 2023, we have gained international recognition via the “Responsibility Europe” brand, of which the Label Committed CSR is one of 3 European partners.
Created on the initiative of Groupe AFNOR (France), INDR (Luxembourg) and Ecoparc (Switzerland), Responsibility Europe brings together leading CSR labels that are demanding and pragmatic, demonstrate real added value and contribute to the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
