For Eiffage, respect for individuals applies to employees as well as partners and external stakeholders. Its primary focuses are prevention and safety on construction sites, equal opportunities, professional integration, non-discrimination. These values apply to all of the Group’s geographical locations.
Since 2005, Eiffage has been a signatory to the Global Compact, which encourages companies to adopt and promote core values, particularly in the field of human rights: respect for the freedom of association and effective recognition of the right to collective bargaining, elimination of all forms of forced and compulsory labour, effective abolition of child labour, and elimination of discrimination in employment and occupation.

Suppliers

Suppliers and subcontractors are essential contributors to the Eiffage Group’s activity. A responsible policy involves extending the Group’s requirements to these partners and to the terms of collaboration with them.

Eiffage therefore implements a responsible procurement policy:
 
incorporating sustainability criteria in framework contracts and general terms of purchase;
taking consideration of responsible criteria in the referencing of suppliers and subcontractors and in the award of contracts;
maintaining sustainable and fair relationships with suppliers and subcontractors who share the Group’s values, etc.

Competition and fraud prevention

Competition, conflicts of interest, corruption, influence, etc. Eiffage is vigilant about business practices and regulatory compliance in all countries where it operates.

Competition and fraud prevention

The Group defines internal rules and, in certain cases, commits to sanctioning any breaches it may be apprised of, regardless of criminal proceedings being implemented in the country concerned.
Eiffage University provides a mandatory training module for executives and supervisors on the theme of trade and ethics applied in the field.

Eiffage leads a continuous reflection on managing the impacts of its activities and their sustainability. The Group includes in its working methods the development of alternatives to fossil fuels, the responsible use of natural resources, more systematic recycling and promoting of materials from deconstruction, and the renaturation of developed land.

The Group’s sustainable development policy focuses on four basic principles:
 
the prevention and control of risks related to the activities’ environmental aspects;
the deployment of solutions that are respectful of the environment (pooling of specific knowledge, assessment of the environmental performance of offers, application of the HQVie® repository, etc.);
a research and development policy structured around the techniques of “building differently” (“post-carbon” cities, promotion of systemic needs analysis, control of environmental impacts, rational use of natural resources, consideration of biodiversity-related issues);
the rollout of the ISO 14001 certification across all entities.
