We are deeply committed to supporting the social and economic development of our environment. We understand our role as responsible global corporate citizen and engage in diverse initiatives and projects.

Our vision and our commitments allow us to keep focused and make the right choices as part of our work at ESII. They provide solid principles that we follow daily in our activities.

Good relationships with our partners, customers, governments and other stakeholders are the keys to our success. We can help build healthy relationships by acting with honesty, integrity and respect for others.

Each of us :

  • Acts in accordance with our values, our principles and internal rules
  • Ensures its role in our organization*
  • Participates and respects the CSR and Quality of Life at work actions

*The governance of ESII is ensured by a management committee, represented by the directors of departments, with a mode of operation where the hierarchical levels are reduced and smooth communication is privileged; managers are into coaching and each employee has his responsibilities in his roles; transversal instances (steering committees, …) are also responsible and decision-makers in their roles.

  • SMETA Audit

    As part of the CSR policy, ESII was audited by the SMETA procedure (Sedex Members Ethical Trade Audit). The ethical practices of the company are examined based on 4 items:

    1- The environment

    The ecological recommendation of the SMTA takes different forms with the objective to limit waste with the eco-construction or to reduce the carbon footprint during the transport of the supplied products. To do that, ESII is committed to: – promote the local suppliers – reduce and recover waste – promote the certified suppliers (ISO 14001, imprim’vert…)

    2- Labor standards

    In this domain, the commitments go further than the respect of the human rights in the premises of ESII. The company doesn’t contract a partnership or does business with another company that doesn’t respect the labor standards.

    3- Business ethics

    ESII builds a win / win relationship with its suppliers and customers. All the aspects of the relationship with these companies are concerned: price, terms of sale… Thus, unfair practices to declare a service provider faulty or corruption are forbidden within the company.

    4- Community benefit

    The process ESII is involved in, concerns all the stakeholders in its activity. Beyond customers and suppliers, this process benefits the employees and the immediate environment.

  • Sustainable Digital Policy

    ESII signed the sustainable Digital Policy where we are committed to optimizing digital tools to limit their impacts and consumption and to develop service offers accessible to all, inclusive and sustainable.
