A global mining and metallurgical group, Eramet has just included its purpose in its articles of association: Become a benchmark for the responsible transformation of the Earth’s mineral resources for good living together.
In support of this ambition, the Group’s sustainable development approach is an essential pillar of its strategy. Formulated in its 2018-2023 CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) roadmap, it brings together thirteen measurable objectives to be achieved and is structured around three axes – commitment to people, commitment to the responsible economy and commitment to the planet.
In 2020, with a CSR index performance of 102 (target 1002), Eramet’s actions in terms of workplace safety, employee development, societal relations, reduction of our carbon footprint, circular economy, business ethics, human rights and the preservation of biodiversity were in line with the goal. The overall rating of 66/100 awarded by Vigeo-Eiris confirms the constant improvement in the Group’s extra-financial performance over the past three years.
Virginie de Chassey, Deputy Director General of Sustainable Development and Business Engagement, declared: âEramet is once again on the podium of the most virtuous companies in terms of CSR in the European mining and metallurgical sector according to Vigeo-Eiris . In a context sometimes made difficult by the health situation, we continued our projects with the same dynamism and the same requirements. This collective result demonstrates the unwavering commitment of our teams around the world and our ability to continuously improve.
