Taking into account the environmental, social and societal impact of business
Companies are essential to the prosperity of France. They are the driving force behind growth, innovation and job creation. However, their activities can also have negative impacts on health and the environment, or cause accidents. AFEP’s member companies are committed to a continuous progress approach and are among the best CSR performers on a global scale.
