OUR CSR POLICY
In addition to its economic performance, SPIE aims to contribute to a more sustainable, responsible and inclusive world. The Group has been a member of the United Nations Global Compact since 2003 and ensures that its principles are applied in the areas of human rights, labour standards, the environment and anti-corruption.
Since 2011, SPIE has had in place a formal CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) policy, managed by a dedicated committee, which places sustainable development at the heart of its growth strategy. The effective implementation of this approach has been rewarded for the past eight years with an EcoVadis Gold rating, placing SPIE among the top 3% of companies in its industry.
A commitment in line with our values—performance, proximity, responsibility—and a CSR approach based around four axes.
To provide services that meet our clients' expectations, we rely on certifications based on international ISO standards.
We are regularly audited by the Swiss Safety Center in order to improve our management systems.
Since 2010, our sustainability performance has been assessed by the Ecovadis agency.
Our CSR policy has been evaluated on four different axes: ethics, responsible purchasing, the environment, and our social dimension.
By obtaining Gold status, SPIE is in the top 1% of the most ethical companies in terms of CSR according to Ecovadis.
