Corporate Social Responsibility

Our Corporate Social Responsibility program is based on five axes: Social, Local Anchorage, Business Ethics, Environment, and Health & Safety.

Word from our CEO

Our goal is to improve the impact we have on our surrounding societies. Fiven is committed to limit all the adverse effects of its activities on society, the environment and people.

In 2020, we are actively working on developing our own CSR approach covering good practices in terms of social, health, safety and business ethics. In this context, the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) created by the UN will serve as a source of inspiration and as a global reference point.

Besides, our principles, Respect, Integrity, Solidarity, Trust and Transparency named as "The Fiven 5" ensure that an extensive Corporate Governance will provide the basis for the realization of the five axes of our Corporate Social Responsibility approach.
