COMMITTING TO THE FUTURE
Committed to CSR since 2012, Cap Ingelec has seen its ECOVADIS rating rise by 22% thanks to numerous meaningful initiatives. Today, we share with you the way in which Cap Ingelec exercises its CSR policy on a daily basis and contributes to building a more sustainable world. Beyond the excellent figures, 2021 marks a year turned towards the future, with the implementation of our strategic orientation plan 2021-2030. To succeed, we must ‘be the engineering company that moves, evolves and adapts‘. A company capable of reinventing itself, and of acting responsibly every day. Since 1992, we have set ourselves a committed and responsible course of action towards our employees, our clients and our suppliers.
Every day, we ensure that we exercise our economic, social and environmental responsibility through an ambitious HR policy, mobilised in favour of equal opportunities, diversity and gender diversity. CSR also enables us to reconcile performance and ethics and to create a rich dialogue with all the stakeholders invested in our projects. Our membership of the Global Compact is evidence of this strong commitment to a more sustainable world in the areas of labour, human rights and the environment.
CSR is part of our DNA: it is the virtuous ellipse that allows us to look to the future with serenity.
Consult our new 2022 report where you can discover our commitments, our ambitions and the progress we have made in terms of CSR. This report highlights the actions that have fuelled our approach throughout the year, with the following new features this year: membership of the Global Compact, the presentation of our 2021-2030 strategic plan, the first HSE day, IT security, and the signing of the “new energy systems” sector contract.
A long-term investment
“The world is changing rapidly, a phenomenon that Covid-19 has only accelerated. In this context, CSR must be considered as an investment. It is part of a collaborative approach internally and a means of communicating our values externally. The HRD refers in particular to the efforts made with regard to young people: participation in forums, work-study contracts and the development of its “engineering incubator“, for example. Few people are aware that Cap Ingelec is involved in the Nos Quartiers ont du Talent (NQT) programme, which highlights profiles that are sometimes discriminated against because of their origin or social background, or that it is regularly involved in sponsorship activities, such as with Bordeaux Mécènes Solidaires, of which Franck Vialar, Cap Ingelec’s Deputy Managing Director, is a member of the Board of Directors and of the “Integration” commitment committee. Finally, CSR has many advantages for employees as it contributes to the development of well-being in the workplace. Future themes will include reducing the company’s carbon footprint by increasing the number of electric vehicles and raising awareness of business ethics. Our CSR policy has resonance at the highest level of government, as Matthieu Calès took part in a working meeting on the societal commitment of small and medium-sized companies at the Elysée Palace last May.
