CSR report 2022

 

With over two centuries of history behind us, we must use our unique expertise to build a better future, by developing increasingly innovative solutions of the highest quality.

Our motto, “Shaping a sustainable future together”, reflects the virtuous model that we strive to deploy for our stakeholders every day in order to respond to today's environmental and societal challenges.

In 2022, we are publishing our first CSR report to publicly declare our Corporate Social Responsibility ambitions and aims, while informing our stakeholders about our achievements and our areas of improvement.

Taking action to protect homes sustainably

« Our CSR policy is a real vector of commitment that mobilises the whole company, spurring us on to keep making Edilians a sustainable partner for innovative and responsible homes. »

Pascal Casanova , CEO of Edilians

Our four strategic commitment pillars

To guide our approach and structure our actions, our commitment is implemented around four foundational pillars, with quantifiable progress targets for 2025 and 2030.

 

 

 environment building sustainability

 

Let's build environmentally friendly solutions

Because we believe in the precious connection between people and the land, we work every day to build an innovative, environmentally-friendly habitat. Reducing our carbon footprint and controlling our impact on nature and biodiversity are projects that will enable us to build our future, perpetuating our expertise and innovation capabilities for tomorrow.

OUR DECARBONISATION PLAN

Our decarbonisation plan is the cornerstone of our commitment to reducing our environmental footprint, aiming for a 30% cut in our direct CO2 emissions per tonne produced by 2030 in France. This will be achieved through a major investment plan to first reduce our consumption of natural gas, and in a second step to initiate substitution of natural gas with alternative decarbonised energy.

STRENGTHENING THE HEALTH AND SAFETY CULTURE


In the area of health and safety, we are deploying an ambitious roadmap with a clear aim: to prevent accidents and illnesses, starting with the most serious ones likely to cause irreversible effects, based on two main reference frameworks: our QSE Policy and our Health & Safety Charter.
