These exemplary results, achieved despite the health crisis, attest to the commitment of our teams to serving our stakeholders, particularly the host communities.
As a global mining and metallurgical group, Eramet has just included its purpose in its statutes: Become a reference for the responsible transformation of the Earth's mineral resources for living well together.
In support of this ambition, the sustainable development approach of the Group is a key pillar of its strategy. Formulated in its 2018-2023 CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) Roadmap, it brings together thirteen measurable goals to be achieved and is organized around three axes – commitment to people, commitment to responsible economy, and commitment to the planet.
In 2020, with a CSR index performance of 102 (target 1002), Eramet's actions in terms of workplace safety, employee development, community relations, reducing our carbon footprint, the circular economy, business ethics, human rights and biodiversity preservation were in line with the target. The overall score of 66/100 awarded by Vigeo-Eiris confirms the constant progress of the Group's extra-financial performance over the past three years.
Virginie de Chassey, Executive Senior Vice-President of Sustainability & Corporate Engagement, said: “Eramet is once again on the podium of the most virtuous companies in terms of CSR in the European mining and metallurgical sector according to Vigeo-Eiris. In a context made difficult at times by the health situation, we have continued our projects with the same dynamism and the same high standards. This collective result demonstrates the unwavering commitment of our teams around the world and our ability to continuously improve.”
