AGAP2 ADHERES TO THE PRINCIPLES OF THE GLOBAL COMPACT

OUR CSR AREAS
Diversity and inclusion
We wish to reflect diversity in all of its component parts. The various nationalities represented are one of the assets of agap2, and we would like to welcome disabled employees in the same way. It would be a shame to exclude talented individuals: we would like to offer equal career opportunities.
Our activities have an impact on the environment: non-renewable resource use, air and water pollution, waste production and greenhouse gas emissions. We ask that each agap2 employee commits to adopting simple environmentally friendly actions related to his or her activities. With this in mind, we have introduced a company-wide sustainable development charter.
We feel concerned by local issues in all of our locations, whether they are to do with solidarity, the fight against exclusion, sport, culture, health, etc. We encourage our teams to contribute to, or set up, initiatives in these areas. We believe that an effective CSR policy should be deployed on the ground rather than dictated from above.
