CSR label awarded - 25 September 2012
The Foyer Group has been awarded the "Socially Responsible Company" label by the INDR (French National Institute for Sustainable Development and Corporate Social Responsibility).
Foyer is the first insurance company among the 60 companies to have received the label to date.
There are three pillars to sustainable development in the corporate world:
- Social: social consequences of the company’s activity on all stakeholders: employees, suppliers, customers, local communities and civil society.
- Environmental : compatibility of the company’s activity with preservation of ecosystems, analysis of the impacts caused by the company and its products in terms of consumption of resources, production of waste, pollution, etc.
- Economic : financial performance as well as capacity to contribute to the economic development of the company’s local community and stakeholders, compliance with the principles of fair competition.
In January 2009, the Foyer Group concluded a partnership agreement with the non-profit organisation MyClimateLux.
MyClimateLux activities are aimed in particular at making companies and the public at large aware of climate change, the efficient use of energy and renewable energy sources, together with enabling the voluntary compensation of CO2 emissions by investing in high-quality climate protection projects.
Offsetting the CO2 emissions of Foyer clients
At the 2009 car show, the Foyer Group continued to raise awareness among its clients by taking concrete action: for a period of one year, Foyer undertook to offset the CO2 emissions of each new car insured with mobilé between 30 January 2009 and 31 May 2009.
By taking this step, Foyer hoped to set an example and motivate everyone to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions and offset residual emissions. 11,225 tonnes of CO2 were offset via the purchase of certificates from MyClimateLux. The funds paid by Foyer to MyClimateLux were used to finance the construction of efficient ovens in Peru which help to cut the need for wood, reduce the environmental impact and improve living conditions for the local population.
thin the framework of this partnership, the Foyer Group has adopted a new corporate signature:
