United Nations Global Compact: Egis reports on its achievements in 2011

In November 2011, Egis committed to upholding the ten principles of the United Nations Global Compact in the areas of human rights, labour, environment and anti-corruption. According to this commitment, each year the Group must report on its progress in these areas.

Egis, committed to sustainable engineering

The signing of the Compact confirms the Group's commitment to sustainable development, which is already at work in several initiatives, including the development and implementation of sustainable approaches and solutions, the drawing-up of an in-house roadmap on corporate and environmental responsibility and the formation of a Sustainable Development Steering Committee (committee of internal and external stakeholders).

Through its membership, Egis reaffirms its ambition to be known as a leader in sustainable engineering through-out its range of services and through its practices and the conduct of its teams: All Egis staff affected by our membership must respect and promote the ten principles of the Global Compact wherever they work.

Every year, Egis publishes its COmmunication on Progress (COP).

Since 2012, Egis associates its COP and CSR reports to propose a single document containing all the themes of CSR.
