CSR

In a fast-changing world, driven by the ecological imperative, social challenges, and increasingly stringent French regulations, COGEP CSR works alongside you to turn today's challenges into tomorrow's opportunities.

What is Corporate Social Responsibility?

Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) refers to companies’ commitment to integrating:

  • Social concerns

    Working conditions, training, diversity, health, and safety…

  • Environmental concerns

    Greenhouse gas emissions, biodiversity, pollution…

  • Economic concerns

    Business ethics, supplier relations…

CSR has become an essential part of the business world. This strategy, which incorporates sustainable development concerns, has a significant impact on small and medium-sized businesses.

Its voluntary application offers advantages in terms of sustainable development and overall performance. The challenges are important, and implementing a CSR approach requires a well-defined action plan.

Why develop a CSR approach in your company?

Environmental, social, and economic responsibilities are now essential factors of commitment and confidence, for your employees, customers, and partners alike.

This new reality, which is profoundly changing business paradigms, plays a key role in access to finance and participation in calls for tender.

From now on, your company will need to implement a CSR policy.

How can you boost your competitiveness in the French marketplace?

Adopting a structured, well thought-out CSR approach is becoming a major asset in boosting your attractiveness and strengthening your competitiveness in a more sustainable market.

What are the 7 principles of CSR?

  • Improving your company’s reputation

    By adopting responsible practices, you strengthen your company’s reputation among its stakeholders, particularly your customers, employees, and investors. A positive CSR image will attract new customers and retain existing ones.

  • Attracting talent

    Today’s employees are increasingly sensitive to the values and ethics of their employer. A company committed to CSR will be more attractive to recruit and retain talent motivated by environmental and social considerations.

  • Reducing risks

    CSR often involves the proactive management of risks, whether environmental, social, or ethical. By identifying them, you will be able to define strategies and put in place action plans to limit them.

  • Opening up to new markets

    By meeting the requirements of your stakeholders, such as your customers and bankers, adopting a CSR policy will give you easier access to financing, tenders, and even new market segments, particularly those that favour environmentally friendly and socially responsible products and services.

  • Lasting innovation

    Implementing a CSR policy encourages you to rethink your business model and make it part of a sustainable development approach. CSR leads you to innovate and develop new products and processes that are more respectful of the environment.

  • Reducing costs

    By adopting sustainable practices, you can reduce your costs in the long term. With CSR, will be able to save energy, manage waste efficiently and optimise your resources to improve your overall profitability.

  • Making a positive contribution to society
