Through our rationale "Make the world Nameraka", we are contributing to a world that is more respectful of nature and humans.
Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) therefore plays a central role in our governance. Our CSR approach is based on 5 pillars that cover all areas of the company and enable us to achieve concrete objectives.
Responding to the challenges facing society
Aware of the impact of the accelerating pace of change in our society, we want to make a commitment to both environmental and social issues.
Six out of nine planetary limits were exceeded. Climate change, biodiversity erosion, freshwater consumption, introduction of new substances, disruption of the nitrogen and phosphorus cycles and changes in land use.
Our company has a role to play in combating these global disturbances. We do this by focusing on our 5 strategic areas of Environment/Energy: to reduce our greenhouse gas emissions, water consumption, energy consumption and atmospheric emissions, and reduce and recycle our waste
Our society also needs social foundations that guarantee a dignified and fulfilled life, such as income from work, health, gender equality, inclusion, and respect for human rights. We help to guarantee these foundations throughout our company by ensuring training, health, and safety, and more broadly a quality of life at work, inclusion, non-discrimination and respect for human rights throughout our supply chain.
Meeting the needs of stakeholders
To ensure the long-term future of our company in an ever-changing world, we need to satisfy not only the expectations of our shareholders, but also the expectations of all our stakeholders: our employees, our customers, our suppliers, our work-study students, our partners, the local communities, etc
Listening to our customers and their next strategic moves ensures the long-term future of our business, listening to our employees ensures their commitment and loyalty, listening to our suppliers ensures long-term relationships and listening to local communities attracts future talent.
Achieving our carbon neutrality targets
As designers, producers, and suppliers of bearings, we are helping to combat climate change through the energy efficiency of our products.We are also working towards this goal by setting out our targets for carbon neutrality.

From the companies, rational, through its strategic plan, to its carbon neutrality plan, this CSR approach cuts across all areas and activities of the company. CSR is everybody's business!
Every year, we continue to make progress. With a rate of 77% in 2023 according to ECOVADIS, the global standard for CSR assessments, we are among the top 1% of companies (Gold rating).
Our social and environmental results are the subject of an annual declaration of extra-financial performance audited by Ernst & Young.

To ensure the long-term future of our company and the sustainability of our activities, we need to satisfy the expectations of all our stakeholders. We also have a responsibility to society, helping to combat global warming, preserving all natural resources, promoting diversity and inclusion, and ensuring respect for human rights throughout our supply chain.
We have firmly established this responsibility by stating our raison d'être: "We make the world Nameraka". It is what unites us, what gives meaning to our work: contributing to a more fluid, mobile and harmonious society, based on a more efficient use of energy.
