Fiven has been certified with the ecovadis silver medal for sustainability

Environmental, social and governance (ESG)

Our Corporate Social Responsibility programme is based on five pillars: Social, Local Anchorage, Business Ethics, Environment, and Health and Safety.

A word from our CEO

Our aim is to improve the impact we have on the societies around us. Fiven is committed to limiting all adverse effects of its activities on society, the environment and people.

Since 2020, we have followed our own CSR approach which covers good practices in terms of social ethics, health, safety and business. In this context, the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) created by the UN serve as a source of inspiration and a global reference point. In 2022, we continued our CSR journey. The biggest achievement was the first year for the entire group, without any lost time accidents.  We are very proud of our commitment to keeping all Fiven employees safe at work! For the second year running, we won the silver medal in the Ecovadis ESG assessment.

In addition to our six external key values, where it's all about the respectful relationship with our customers, we live by 'The Fiven 5' internally: Respect, Integrity, Solidarity, Trust and Transparency. They ensure that extensive Corporate Governance will provide the basis for realising the five axes of our Corporate Social Responsibility approach.
