As a family SME, LACROIX Group must grant a major importance to its societal and environmental responsibility approach.

That’s the reason why the group recently joined the United Nations Global Compact, a global movement that aims at mobilizing companies and stakeholders to create a more sustainable world.

Driven by our 4,000 employees, we commit ourselves to complying with 10 principles belonging to 4 categories : Human rights, labour, environment, anti-corruption :

Human rights :

Principle 1 : Businesses should support and respect the protection of internationally proclaimed human rights; and
Principle 2 : make sure that they are not complicit in human rights abuses.

Labour :

Principle 3 : Businesses should uphold the freedom of association and the effective recognition of the right to collective bargaining;
Principle 4 : the elimination of all forms of forced and compulsory labour;
Principle 5 : the effective abolition of child labour; and
Principle 6 : the elimination of discrimination in respect of employment and occupation.

« Our ambition is to put our technical and industrial excellence in the service of a connected, responsible world, so it is quite naturally that the LACROIX Group invests in this project, sharing common values that are important to it. » Vincent Bedouin, Chairman of the Board.

Environment :

Principle 7 : Businesses should support a precautionary approach to environmental challenges;
Principle 8 : undertake initiatives to promote greater environmental responsibility; and
