SUSTAINABLE APPROACH

Considering Our Future

Long convinced that companies have a major role in achieving the objectives of sustainable development and in preventing the risks and threats hanging over our collective future,

Persuaded that developing a sustainable and responsible approach undeniably brings benefits to the company, its customers, its partners and its employees,

EUROGERM has committed itself since 2011, to the United Nations Global Compact to support the 10 principles regarding human rights, employment rights, environmental protection and the fight against corruption.

This commitment to the United Nations Global Compact was the first step towards our CSR approach. Naturally fitted into our company's strategy, the CSR approach invites us to continuously improve our practices and to measure the impact of our actions and decisions on people, on the environment, and on society.
