CSR performance: figures & publications

The SPIE Group is convinced that we can choose to turn climate change and the digital revolution into opportunities and levers for sustainable progress in Europe and worldwide. By making itself part of the solution, SPIE has made ambitious and quantified commitments, formalised in its corporate social responsibility roadmap. The Group shares its CSR indicators with all its stakeholders here to enable them to monitor its social, environmental and societal performance.

SPIE has been measuring the alignment of its activities with EU taxonomy criteria for three years now, making it a pioneer in the area. This green share of its revenue has steadily increased. In 2021, the Group’s contribution was based on three pillars of the energy transition:

2021 non -financial performance: SPIE's carbon footprint

As a pure-play service provider, SPIE has a relatively small direct carbon footprint. Its fleet emissions decreased by 2% only in 2021 compared with 2019, due  to delays in the vehicle supply chain. Building emissions decreased by 7%. And commuting and business travel emissions were halved as a result of Covid-19 prevention measures.

A new safety campaign was rolled out for all employees in 2021 to promote the Group’s 10 Life Saving Rules. Taken from the Safety Prevention Code, these rules are also based on breaches observed in fatal and serious accidents that have occurred over the past three years at SPIE. All Group employees, at  all levels, are required to have read and understood these life saving rules and apply them at all times.

2025 objective #4 : Strengthening gender diversity 

Increase by 25% the proportion of women in key management positions compared to 2020.
