Artelia is firmly committed to combatting climate change, preserving the environment and respecting human rights.
THESE VALUES PERVADE OUR ORGANISATION AND INSPIRE EVERYTHING WE DO
“Excellence, Simplicity, Sharing, Independence and Passion”: five values that bear witness to our history, reflect our personality, and echo our corporate purpose: “Designing solutions for a positive life”. They are passed on within our teams and reflected in all our day-to-day dealings with our clients.
A TANGIBLE, AMBITIOUS CSR POLICY, EVALUATED ON AN ANNUAL BASIS
In the face of the climate crisis, environmental disruption and the slow pace of progress on human rights, we have made corporate social responsibility (CSR) one of the cornerstones of our development. We have hence drawn up a policy with a set of ambitious environmental, social and governance (ESG) commitments, and rolled out an internal organisation dedicated to integrity, compliance and CSR management.
Our CSR policy is built around four pillars broken down into 20 quantified targets that we have undertaken to meet by 2025. We have our efforts assessed by an independent organisation specialising in this area (EcoVadis) and issue an annual ‘Communication on Progress’ under our commitment to the United Nations Global Compact. Stepping up our action against climate change, we have also signed up to the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi).
ECOVADIS PLATINUM RATING
Ecovadis, the organisation which assesses the CSR performance of nearly 100,000 companies worldwide, has awarded us its Gold rating, putting us in the “Top 1%” of engineering and architecture firms. This recognition acknowledges our Group-wide efforts in four main areas: the environment, human and social rights, ethics, and responsible purchasing.
ACTIVE MEMBER OF
THE GLOBAL COMPACT
As an active member of the United Nations Global Compact since 2018, we contribute actively to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) while respecting the ten universal principles relating to human rights, labour rights, the environment and the fight against corruption.
THE SBTI PROCESS
In signing up to the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi), we undertook to step up our efforts to curb our greenhouse gas emissions. The SBTi helps companies adhere to the IPCC recommendations and the targets enshrined in the Paris agreement to rein in global warming.
