In our increasingly fragile world of limited resources, major international groups share a huge responsibility. Fully aware of this challenge, Eramet has made the strategic choice of combining performance and sustainability. This ambition means making corporate social responsibility (CSR) the core component of its daily efforts.
With its membership of the Global Compact, the Group promotes the incorporation of this initiative into its strategy, organizational culture and operations. In particular, Eramet is committed to contributing to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) to build a more sustainable world.
As part of the commitments made as a signatory of the Global Compact, the Group now publishes an annual Communication on Progress (COP), a document that compiles practical CSR actions put in place, progress achieved and quantified objectives. This is an opportunity to report on Eramet's contribution to the challenges of the Global Compact through the policies, actions and results implemented as part of its CSR drive.
The Global Compact is a universal commitment
The idea of a major global pact was launched in Davos in January 1999 by Kofi Annan, the United Nations Secretary-General. The Global Compact emerged a year later. The goal is to secure the voluntary commitment of businesses, non-profit organizations and United Nations agencies on ten universally recognized principles. These include respect for human rights, the elimination of forced labor and discrimination, and environmental protection.
