The Pierre Fabre Group has entrusted the independent organization ECOCERT Environnement with evaluating its CSR approach according to the ISO 26000 standard for sustainable development.
From this initial evaluation, the company obtained the level of Excellence - corresponding to the highest level of maturity of the ECOCERT 26000 standard - with a rating of 77%. No international company of Pierre Fabre's size had previously been assessed by ECOCERT according to this standard.
In order to get the most out of its evaluation, 150 audits were carried out in France and around the world, including 55 Pierre Fabre employees selected at random and a panel of 8 external stakeholders. With regard to the 7 core areas of ISO 26000, the independent assessment body found many strengths and indicated opportunities for improvement.
Several areas for progress will guide the company’s CSR program over the next 3 years:
In a world saturated with "green" information, it is important to provide evidence of commitments to consumers and stakeholders. The transparency initiative that we have undertaken with ECOCERT Environnement is primarily a response to this requirement, and few companies of our size do this. In addition, it will enable us to pursue our continuous improvement approach by working on the areas for improvement identified between now and the next evaluation scheduled for 2022.
