Act in the heart of the regions
A responsible economic player
Committed to local employment
Our social policy is embedded at the local level. It contributes to creating local jobs, which are in particular open to applicants with limited qualifications. We provide them with real opportunities to develop their skills enabling each person to progress within the company. Young people are not forgotten, on the contrary. We regularly organise meetings to encourage their professional integration: open days, presentations of our activities, CV workshops and recruitment role-playing. As a sign of this commitment, in France we have signed the Enterprise and Neighbourhood Charter to improve the young people’s chances on the labour market.
Fighting against poverty
Since more than 10 years, the Group has been cooperating in France with Les Restos du Cœur. Beyond the sponsorship that the Group can provide in terms of training and logistical support, it annually launches a large food collection on 70 of its sites which has allowed to collect and transport 1.3 tons of goods in 2020. A similar initiative is being conducted in Spain with the Manufacturers and Distributors Association (ARCOC).
In tune with its environment
Respectful of the environment in which we work, we are particularly attentive to its local characteristics. An environmental impact study is systematically conducted prior to any construction and our products are tailored to the surrounding requirements: protect protected species, mitigate any negative impact of trucks, etc.
We also maintain ongoing consultation with municipalities to ensure that our logistics services comply with regional developments. For example in France, in Strasbourg, Bordeaux, Rennes, Nantes and Lille, we are working on hyper-centre deliveries. In Lyon, we are involved in the discussions about the creation of a low-emission zone.
