In our increasingly fragile world, major industrial groups have a huge responsibility, particularly those in the mining and metallurgy sectors. This is why Eramet has decided to ensure its efforts are aligned with and promote international and sectoral commitments, as well as to formalize these efforts in several policies and charters.
Faced with global challenges, Eramet takes action within shared international initiatives. This led the group to join one of the main schemes set up by the United Nations to protect the planet: the Global Compact.
Similarly, the actions of Eramet and its subsidiaries are aligned with the priorities defined by the United Nations to achieve a better, more stable future for all through the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG).
In November 2021, Eramet joined the act4nature international initiative for the preservation of biodiversity and had its commitments recognized as SMART by environmental NGOs and scientific bodies. The Group is thus committed to integrating biodiversity preservation objectives into its corporate strategy as part of its activities. Within two years, the Group will report publicly on the implementation of its objectives.
As a mining and metallurgy player, Eramet has a singular responsibility: its business has an impact in the areas where the Group operates and must conduct itself completely transparently in sectors that are sometimes under stress.
To promote transparency and the introduction of international standards in its sector, the Group joined the Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative (EITI).
Eramet is also a partner member of the Responsible Minerals Initiative (RMI) with the aim of helping to improve best practices in the sector.
