CSR: The Corporate Social Responsibility is the Company’s contribution for sustainable developments. The interviews with the managers of each division helped to define several issues including the following:

  • Sharing the same business ethics (Principle in the bedrock of our sustainable development strategy),
  • Guaranteeing the safety and employability of staff,
  • Managing and reducing risk,
  • Optimizing products and services,
  • Innovating in order to develop new products and services,
  • Building Synergies within the Company,
  • Getting involved in and contributing to local development in partnership with the local communities,
  • Good Practices validated by the Global Compact

Presentation of Global Compact and 10 Principles

The Secretary-General Kofi Annan urged businesses on the July 26th,2000 to support and enact within their sphere of influence 10 fundamental principles in the areas of human, environmental standards and the fight against corruption. These principles are:

Human Rights:

  • Promote and respect the human rights,
  • Do not be complicit in human rights abuses.

Labour Standards:

  • Respect freedom of association and the effective recognition of the right of collective bargaining,
  • Abolish child labour,
  • Eliminate discrimination in employment and occupation.

Anti-Corruption:

Taking action against corruption in all its forms, including extortion and bribes.

Environment:

  • Apply precautionary approach to environmental challenges,
  • Undertake initiatives to promote greater environmental responsibility,
  • Promote the development and diffusion of environmentally friendly technologies

To effectively take up the challenges of today and tomorrow, the Company has created an organization that reflects the diversity of sustainable issues. Environment and Sustainable Development Division consist of two Departments:

Environment

This department implements policy in the area of cargo handling, logistics and freight operations and through a network of coordinators is responsible for cross-functional management of all other departments as regards ground operations. The department also provides consultancy and support services for teams seeking to implement environmental programmes. It publicizes major environmental initiatives and, should it be necessary, deploys predetermined crisis management mechanism.

Sustainable Development

This department defines and animates sustainable development policies. In all these departments, there is now a Quality-Health & Safety in the Workplace-Environment (QSE) Officer, with coordinators for each of these functions.

CSR Departments are responsible for policy and deployment in each organization.CSR is guaranteed at the highest level.
