Our corporate social responsibility
Our goal: be an exemplary corporate citizen
To meet the expectations of our stakeholders, including employees, partners, customers, shareholders, suppliers and all the other communities in our ecosystem, Safran has made corporate social responsibility (CSR) an integral part of its growth strategy. Our CSR policy is grounded in six strategic priorities that are fully aligned with the Group's global strategy, actions and commitments. Safran's goal is to demonstrate exemplary social and environmental performance.
At Safran, we see corporate social responsibility as a source of growth and performance improvement. Our core commitments of innovating to protect the environment, striving for excellence in the protection of people and goods, valuing our employees, suppliers and partners, and affirming our values of integrity, are pursued with all internal and external stakeholders.
The six strategic priorities of Safran's CSR policy
Safran's CSR policy is based on six strategic priorities which were defined in 2012 according to the ISO 26000 standard:
Safran's corporate social responsibility policy encompasses all of the Group's stakeholders: customers, shareholders, suppliers, employees, unions, community associations, government authorities and institutions, financial analysts and ratings agencies, consumers and the media. This policy is anchored in the ethical values that form the basis of our corporate culture and are shared across the Group: responsible corporate citizenship, people development and recognition, meeting commitments, and the power of teamwork.
A structured approach
To ensure that behavior is consistent with our ethics and values, Safran's corporate social responsibility policy is organized and shared across our global organization:
- CSR sponsor at Safran Corporate Management and on the Executive Committee.
- CSR authority (Diversity and CSR Manager)
- CSR steering committee (representing all departments concerned).
- CSR correspondents at each Group company worldwide.
