Examples of CSR actions

Axis 1 : Respecting the human being and developing an ethical spirit

Label Emalec Partner

Emalec is in charge of carrying out maintenance and works throughout Europe. The different cultures of the countries in Europe, the different regulations, the different languages, require that maintenance and works be carried out by local professionals. It is with this aim of ensuring a consistent professional quality throughout Europe that Emalec has built its network of partners and created the Emalec Partner label at the beginning of 2016. In each country, our purchasing manager has qualified one or more partners for each technical lot (Air Conditioning, Electricity, Plumbing, Locksmith, Secondary works,…), depending on the size of the country and the capacities of each partner. Emalec manages the activity and animates the network. Each of the Emalec Partner Label partners undertakes to respect the same QSE and CSR principles as Emalec.

Evaluation ecovadis

ECOVADIS-2019In a constant effort to improve its CSR policy, Emalec has achieved a score of 75/100 on the EcoVadis evaluation platform (compared to 70/100 in 2018), thus maintaining its “GOLD” certification. This level of certification is awarded to only 5% of the companies assessed. As a reminder, EcoVadis is a collaborative platform that allows companies to assess the quality of their CSR management system by replying to a questionnaire and by providing specific documents, elements that justify the CSR actions implemented all year round. Emalec has been evaluated by EcoVadis since 2015. It should be noted that this organisation notes the Emalec group’s CSR actions in France only. However, the evolution of the rating earned by Emalec and the level of certification obtained demonstrates a real commitment to CSR.

Waste: Creation of revaluation channels

Example 1: EMALEC, new partner of the association Coeur2Bouchons (France). Since several months, a voluntary supply terminal has been located at the Emalec Group’s headquarters in order to collect/revalorize all types of plastic caps. Because we share common values with the association Coeur2Bouchons, Emalec has joined the association’s network of partners and the first collection is promising: 10.8 kg!

 

Example 2: The EMALEC Group invests in the revaluation of its waste. Below, the results of the “harvest” of used plastic cups for our headquarters (Saint Genis les Ollières) in 2019.
