Drawing on its 8,600 employees in offices in more than 40 countries and on its ability to innovate, the Artelia group contributes to social and economic development in the regions in which it operates.
A culture of building partnerships and reaching out to civil society
As an active member of SYNTEC Ingénierie, the French federation of engineering firms, Artelia is involved alongside 400 other companies in stimulating this job- and value-creating sector, to bring new ideas to fruition and design the world of tomorrow.
Tying in with this open, partnership-based approach, Artelia experts are constantly involved in collaborative research projects aiming to invent innovative solutions and improve our quality of life, in areas such as connected infrastructure, smart buildings, the industry of the future and sustainable cities.
In France, thanks to a network of more than 50 agencies spread throughout the country, Artelia also contributes to local community life. In the Seine Amont urban district (SE of Paris), for example, which includes the Group’s Patio Seine headquarters in Choisy-le-Roi, Artelia is actively involved in a ‘Water, Environment and Soil’ cluster examining micropollutants, Seine river bank development and ways to build partnerships between local authorities and businesses.
Last but not least, the responsible purchasing policy pursued by the Group is encouraging increased use of social enterprises for the procurement of certain services (e.g. copying and printing), which is a practical means of supporting the employment of people with disabilities.
