This is a new mark of recognition for Eramet’s CSR performance: after being ranked in the first decile of the Mining and Metals sectors by the two specialist agencies Vigeo Eiris (in 2019) and ISS ESG (in June 2020), the Group has just been awarded a place in the top 250 companies in the "2021 Socially Responsible Companies" ranking. In the "Building Materials and Heavy Industry" category, Eramet was ranked fourth out of ten. In the "Building Materials and Heavy Industry" category, Eramet was ranked fourth in the top five; and in the “Governance” category, 47th out of 50.
For its very first edition, this prize list honors the 250 most responsible companies in France, from fifteen different sectors. It is a joint initiative between the Statista institute, a German data and statistics provider, and the magazine Le Point.
The criteria assessed in developing this ranking include the environmental approach (actions to protect the environment, compliance with standards, resource management), social commitment (charitable actions, support for diversity) and governance (transparency, innovation).
For Eramet, this prize rewards the significant groundwork that has been accelerated over the past two years to achieve the objectives defined in its CSR roadmap. Through this roadmap, the Group made a public commitment to 13 objectives to be delivered by 2023, in line with the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals. "We find ourselves in an unprecedented context of a collective awareness of environmental and societal issues on a global scale. And at all levels of society. Climate emergency, scarcity of resources, protection of bio-diversity... all these major challenges are at the heart of citizens’ concerns and reflections on the world of tomorrow that we want to build. As manufacturers, we must include them in our strategies and find answers to them," said Virginie de Chassey, the Group’s Executive Vice-President of Sustainable Development and Communication.
