Acting for the climate and the ecological and digital transition
Promoting sustainable mobility
By promoting soft mobility and car sharing, among other things, we are encouraging our teams to reconsider their travel habits to reduce their environmental impact.
In France, for example, the Sustainable Mobility Plan and related actions encourage our teams to reduce the use of private cars. This reduces greenhouse gas emissions, improves air quality and reduces financial costs. As part of this initiative, each employee receives a fixed amount of €500 (covering the cost of a public transport pass, an electric bicycle, repairs, mileage allowances, and more).
Reducing our environmental footprint and that of our customers
In recent years, we have undertaken a major campaign to go paperless.
- Digitisation of information flows and training materials to reduce the volume of paper by 95%.
- Equal reduction in the logistical transport of documentation and training materials.
- Online access to training materials (educational, administrative, etc.) for participants, trainers, and sponsors on our own LMS platform, LearningHub@Cegos.
In 2022, we stopped printing our catalogues.
This represents a saving of almost 15 tonnes of paper over one year.
Cegos raises employee awareness of zero plastic
Our employees are the best ambassadors for our CSR approach. Our commitment hinges on their involvement.
For example, at the end of 2021, Cegos organised a “Team Building Solidaire” event which involved a clean walk organised by the Objectif Zéro Plastique association and our partner Day One. The aim was to raise awareness of plastic pollution among the teams and passers-by and to make our modest contribution, on the ground, to combat the damage it causes.
The clean walk was preceded by an information meeting to better understand and contribute to curbing the phenomenon of plastic pollution.
Safeguarding our planet with reforestation
Cegos works to restore forests with Reforest'Action
- In France, in Chanteloup in the Deux-Sèvres region: planting of 1,700 trees, with the aim of restoring “tired” former agricultural land to develop biodiversity.
- In the Amazon (Brazil): planting of 1,700 trees to combat deforestation, restore damaged ecosystems and safeguard biodiversity. Helping to develop the economy of local populations: building tree nurseries, creating edible forests, setting up environmental awareness programmes.
