Since its origin in 1962, Edenred's mission has been to make the world of work a better world for all. This commitment has allowed the Group to identify the central elements of its corporate social responsibility policy: to improve the lives of individuals, to preserve the planet, and create value responsibly.
People: improve quality of life
Edenred aims to be an employer of choice in terms of professional development, human rights and diversity, to promote well-being through healthy and sustainable eating and to contribute to local development.
Planet: preserve the environment
Edenred seeks to preserve the environment by reducing its carbon footprint, its consumption of resources and its waste, by designing eco services for mobility and against food waste while managing the impact of its solutions.
Progress: create value responsibly
Edenred is committed to developing its activities and partnerships in an ethical manner across its entire value chain. The Group guarantees IT security and data protection, while meeting the expectations of its clients and users and involving them in its shift-to-digital.
This policy is rolled out at an international level, notably with events such as Idealday or the Edenraid sports challenge.
The Group's corporate social responsibility policy was built through a global materiality study involving both internal and external interviews. This study made it possible to identify and prioritize Edenred's issues according to their relevance and their impact on the company's performance.
The materiality assessment enabled the development of a new sustainable development policy aligned with Edenred’s values underpinning the Group’s culture:
In recognition of its commitment, Edenred is included in the three most well-known ethical stock market indices, namely the Dow Jones Sustainability Indices (since 2013), the FTSE4Good (since 2011) and the Vigeo Eiris 120 most advanced companies in Europe and the Eurozone in terms of CSR (since 2018).
As a signatory of the United Nations Global Compact initiative, Edenred is also committed to promoting its core values with respect for human rights, labor regulations and good environmental practices.
Moreover, Edenred contributes to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) set by the United Nations for 2030. With its social commitments, Edenred works towards 12 of these global goals, through the three axes of its CSR policy.
