The shareholding structure of the Group, mainly held by a government-recognized public-interest foundation, gives us the independence we require to ensure our activities are in line with a long-term vision and encourage responsible growth. We thus place the importance of corporate social responsibility (CSR) at the heart of our development model, loyal to the humanist and civic values of our founder.

In 2015, AFNOR Certification, an independent organization, assessed our CSR approach according to the AFAQ 26000 method and granted us the level "exemplary," which was a first for a French company with over 10,000 employees.
