Guiding principles and mission
In order to establish binding terms of reference, we introduced a Code of Conduct in 2006. It is based on international guiding principles including the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, International Labour Organisation Conventions and the United Nations Global Compact.
The effectiveness of our action on sustainability is also monitored by external rating agencies. According to Sustainable Asset Management (SAM), our rating improved from 67 in 2006 to 74/100 points in 2007. We were omitted from the latest European Dow Jones sustainability index, the DJSI STOXX, but the FTSE4Good Index confirmed our company’s membership. We also remain in the Advanced Sustainability Performance Index Eurozone maintained by the French rating agency Vigeo and in the KLD Global Climate 100 Index.
