A RESPONSIBLE APPROACH FOR SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT
Since 2010, ATALIAN is committed to a Sustainable Development strategy. Namely it has incorporated the principles and framework of the ISO 26000 norm on Corporate Social Responsibility into its operations. Since then ATALIAN has demonstrated its commitments to CSR in a variety of ways. ATALIAN became a member of the UN Global Compact in 2012. Two years later ATALIAN signed the French Diversity Charter. In 2015, ATALIAN demonstrated its commitment to environmental protection by signing the Caring for Climate Declaration and drafting a Responsible Procurement Policy. In 2016 ATALIAN decided to issue its own CSR Charter intended to raise awareness amongst staff and clients alike.
ATALIAN has been a signatory to the United Nations Global Compact scheme since 2014. The Global Compact is a UN initiative that aims to encourage businesses worldwide to adopt sustainable and socially responsible policies and to report on their implementation.
It is a principle based framework that encompasses ten principles in the areas of human rights, labour, the environment and anti-corruption.
At ATALIAN, we base our decisions, professional dealings and business relations upon the fundamental principle of integrity. That is why ATALIAN decided to draw-up a Code of ethics whose objective is to raise our staffs’ awareness of the importance of moral qualities. Upon joining our company, staff must pledge to be upright and to respect the fundamental values of the Group, as well as contribute to preserving an atmosphere of trust.
With its specific structure and management system called “Procurement Excellence”, the Corporate Procurement Department aims to achieve excellence in the quality of services delivered, as well as transparency and a sense of partnership with regards to its clients, suppliers and sub-contractors. In order to reach this goal, the Director decided to draw-up a Sustainable Procurement Policy. This document, whose scope is both internal and external, includes a Sustainable Procurement Charter, which suppliers and sub-contractors are asked to sign, as well as an Ethical Procurement Charter which is aimed at ATALIAN staff.
At the beginning of 2011, ATALIAN formalised its CSR commitments and objectives by drawing-up a “CSR Charter”. Aimed at all ATALIAN employees in France and at an international level, the Charter sets out the company’s strategy, actions and good practices in terms of Sustainable Development across 13 specific commitments.
ATALIAN signed the Caring for Climate declaration in December 2015. Through this action, ATALIAN wishes to highlight its strategy in terms of CSR and share its sound practices in favour of climate change mitigation.
