The rapid changes in our world, illustrated by recent climatic, geopolitical and societal events, require us to adapt our ways of life and production. In this context, issues related to corporate social responsibility (CSR) are of paramount importance. Moreover, society is increasingly demanding and justified in the way companies manage these risks and opportunities. Transparency and responsibility is one of the major duties of every company.
Maïsadour awarded "confirmed" level CSR label
Maïsadour is fully aware of the importance of sustainable and responsible management of its activities. In February 2022, the Group was awarded the “Committed to CSR” label by AFNOR at the “Confirmed” level, in recognition of the sustainable development actions and organization it has been implementing for many years. This key step enabled the company to assess its commitments to the 17 UN sustainable development objectives. The ambition is to achieve the “Exemplary” level by 2025.
The Group is publishing today its Extra-Financial Performance Statement (EFSPS) for the fiscal year 2021-2022. This document is the result of a rigorous process to assess our environmental, social and governance impacts.
