Sidetrade’s recently published CSR report for 2022 serves as a comprehensive overview of the company’s initiatives and ongoing endeavours to create a positive impact on its shareholders.
The release of Sidetrade’s CSR report for FY 2022 is a noteworthy achievement for the company, as it encompasses a comprehensive Carbon assessment that includes scopes 1, 2, and 3.
“Cash culture, productivity, financial performance, visibility and predictability in business today are taking on a new dimension. These values can only blossom harmoniously if they are integrated into an essential reflection and a global approach consistent with the societal and environmental responsibility of the economic world. I’m convinced that by integrating these values, we can create a sustainable environment where business success is aligned with the well-being of society and the preservation of our precious planet,” says Olivier Novasque, Sidetrade CEO.
Olivier further emphasized that as the inventors of tomorrow’s world, high-tech companies have a special responsibility and Sidetrade wishes to contribute to the development of a learning, stimulating and pleasant working environment for employees. Whilst doing so, Sidetrade also strives to be exemplary in helping to promote this responsible attitude within the economic environment.”
The report serves as a comprehensive overview of the company’s policies, initiatives, achievements, and ongoing endeavors to create a positive impact on its employees, customers, stakeholders, and the environment. The report outlines key commitments, which include:
- Advancing sustainability by actively managing and reducing the company’s carbon footprint.
- Fostering innovation and investing in talent to foster collaborative excellence and drive growth.
- Ensuring data security and digital responsibility for a resilient future.
- Cultivating sustainable, ethical, and transparent relationships to lead with trust and uphold ethical business practices.
Sidetrade’s dedication to social and environmental responsibility has been acknowledged since 2021 through assessments by Ecovadis and EthiFinance ESG ratings (formerly Gaïa Research). As a participant in the United Nations Global Compact, Sidetrade’s CSR actions and commitments, as highlighted in the report, align directly with the United Nations’ sustainable development goals.
Philippe Gangneux, Sidetrade CFO and Sidetrade CSR Ambassador, commented, “Profitable and sustainable growth, combined with a solid financial base, have always been part of our fundamentals. We have repeatedly demonstrated the resilience of our business model. This approach, which is natural for Sidetrade, enables us to go further and faster in taking into account our social and environmental responsibilities.”
He further added that “we’re only at the beginning of the road. For the coming year, two words will sum up our commitments: humility and ambition. Humility, because just as we are convinced of our strengths, we are also aware of the progress that remains to be made. Ambition, because we have chosen to be responsible and to act today without waiting for tomorrow. Armed with this vision, Sidetrade looks forward to 2023 with confidence and enthusiasm.”
