Société Générale's CSR policy consists in putting these commitments into practice and continually looking for ways to progress.
Institutional commitments of Societe Generale
Aware of its impact on society and the environment, Societe Generale has made several institutional commitments to incorporate Environmental and Social (E&S) criteria into all of its activities.
The dynamics of sustainable development are inherent to the Societe Generale's values. The Group's responsible commitments are reinforced by its accession to the Global Compact, the Equator Principles, the UNEP-FI, and initiatives that work towards responsible finance.
In 2011, the Group published its E&S General Guidelines, which define the responsible standards, parameters, and commitments in its business lines and sectors and are based on best practices. They were communicated externally through the CSR site and internally, within a normative framework, in the form of a Directive.
As part of its commitments towards the Wolfsberg group and the Global Compact made in 2000, Societe Generale has established measures to fight money laundering and corruption. Updated in late 2011, this normative framework ensures the monitoring of any manipulation of the banking system by third parties.
