Sustainable Development: Egis’ commitment and charter

In the context of climate change, the erosion of biodiversity and the depletion of non-renewable resources and confronted with the global challenges of solidarity between regions and social cohesion, Egis has decided to issue this Charter to pledge its contribution to a more sustainable economy.

Be a responsible, caring and creative company

Reflecting its fundamental values, Egis' commitments revolve around three principles:

- Anticipate and avert

- Assist and build

- Assemble and involve

Our commitments are put into practice through a roadmap containing key strategic directions, actions and responsibilities, as well as a timeline and performance indicators. These comittments are part of an ongoing process and may grow and develop through dialogue with stakeholders.

In line with international norms

Our Charter is based on a body of internationally recognised texts: The Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the ILO's Core Conventions, the OECD's Guiding Principles, the Ten Principles of the UN's Global Compact and the voluntary commitments signed by SYNTEC Ingénierie (the professional engineering union) with France's Ministry for Ecology and Sustainable Development.

Jointly drawn-up by all the Group's sustainable development managers and further developed with input from the Sustainable Development Steering Committee (made up of a panel of external stakeholders), our Charter was adopted by the Executive Committee in October 2012.
