CSR commitment in the words of our Environment Manager
Corporate Social Responsibility is the contribution of business to sustainable development. Our approach is to take into account the social and environmental impacts of our business to adopt best practices and contribute to the betterment of society and protection of the environment.
To assess our performance in CSR in the most objective way possible, we are working closely with the EcoVadis exchange, an online evaluation platform. This online platform is an interface between customers and companies, and it allows information on sustainable development to be shared and disseminated.
The result of the EcoVadis evaluation has allowed us to identify the progress required to continually improve our performance, to enhance our approach and to be able to compare ourselves to other companies in our sector.
Our goal is to always go further with our CSR policy and to make NTN-SNR a company that is resolutely looking towards a sustainable future. NTN-SNR wants to put this approach at the heart of the Group's strategy, with the 3 pillars of sustainable development, namely social engagement, societal commitment and environmental responsibility, increasingly contributing to the company's improved performance.
