SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT, CORPORATE SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY, SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY FOR COMPANIES, CSR…WHAT DOES ALL THIS MEAN?
CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) combines all practices implemented by companies with a view to complying with the sustainable development principles – i.e. being economically viable, having a positive impact on society and being more co-friendly. In a nutshell, it represents “the companies’ contribution to Sustainable Development challenges”.
Sustainable Development means striving to meet present needs without jeopardising our ability to satisfy those of future generations (Brundtland report)
Each hot-dip galvanisation unit owned by the Louis Group is part of the large family of Installations Classified for the Protection of the Environment (ICPE) – the functioning of which is subject to prefectoral authorisation. Compliance with the environmental code is part of an ICPE’s basic DNA.
In our view, adhering to environmental legislation is not limited to applying regulations – it goes far beyond that, and is part of an overall development approach. Simultaneously, the Louis Group actively contributes to making European regulations evolve.
