A company and teams committed to social responsibility

CSR at Groupama AM

Ever since its creation, Groupama Asset Management has given its stakeholders (employees, customers and civil society) a permanent commitment to build a more virtuous world. Today, Groupama Asset Management is aware that the stakes of the environmental and economic crises are increasingly pressing and that the challenges to be faced are immense. That is why Groupama AM invests ceaselessly in its own field of activity to improve the company’s daily practice and thereby have a positive impact on society as a whole. Our process of integrating CSR into every aspect of Groupama Asset Management is part of the global strategy established by Groupe Groupama.

  • Social aspects: relations with their customers, suppliers and civil society.
  • Corporate aspects: combating discrimination at work, fostering the Quality of Work Life (QWL) and job and career management.
  • Environmental aspects: combating climate change, implementation of sustainable resource management and preservation of biodiversity.

AN APPROACH BASED ON THREE POWERFUL IDEAS:

PLACING THE HUMAN AT THE HEART OF THE COMPANY

TAKING POSITIVE ACTION

HELPING TO BUILD A BETTER FUTURE

SOCIAL AND SOCIETAL IMPACT: INCREASINGLY ACUTE AND URGENT CHALLENGES

PROMOTING DIVERSITY & YOUTH

  • Combating all forms of discrimination and helping persons with disabilities
  • Aiding young people to enter the workforce by supporting them during their training and professional development
  • Ensuring gender parity and equality in the workplace (link to the “Working at Groupama AM” page)

ENSURING EMPLOYEE SATISFACTION

  • Paying regular attention to the satisfaction and psychological and physical health of employees
  • Fostering employee skills development by proposing specific training programmes or internal mobility
  • Improving the quality of work life (QWL))

PUTTING COMMITMENT INTO EVERYDAY PRACTICE

  • Fostering cohesion in our company by high-quality employee-management dialogue
  • Supporting the personal commitment of our employees in their own charity work or civic actions
  • Supporting causes in the public interest, especially in the field of child welfare, via our sponsorship initiatives aimed at having a positive impact on society

OUR ENVIRONMENTAL COMMITMENT

  • Use only certified PEFC and EU Flower (European Ecolabel) paper for all our company photocopiers.
  • Generalize the company’s proactive contribution to waste sorting, which aims to raise awareness and the sense of personal responsibility of our employees through the establishment of central trash-sorting bins.
  • Promote alternative “soft” modes of transport, with the establishment of a € 200 subsidy for the purchase of electric bikes and scooters to encourage our employees to use more environmentally friendly means of transport .
  • Limit our waste production and promote waste recycling. Groupama AM has two partnerships for daily action in this domain. We recycle our used ink cartridges via the Cartouche Utile company, and we work with Véolia, which recycles our waste products., We also engage in used equipment donation/collection schemes.
  • Employ couriers that use green mobility systems. For this reason, Groupama employs the Lungta company for all its courier deliveries.
  • Promote the purchase of locally or nationally sourced goods to reduce our carbon impact on society. Local sourcing reduces transport distances and therefore cuts our indirect emissions of CO2.
  • Raise the awareness of our employees by offering them the opportunity to participate in workshops by Climate Fresk (La Fresque du Climat) and by training our own ESG/CSR ambassadors as Climate Fresk workshop facilitators.
