CSR

Responsible management has long been an intrinsic corporate value at Bassetts and is a constant priority that we believe is essential to long-term profitability and value creation.

As a part of the Saint Gobain group, Bassetts has a deeply rooted tradition of acting in a responsible and ethical manner, and of being actively and positively present in the communities where we are established. This Corporate Social Responsibility Statement (the CSR Statement) reflects the core values that have guided, and continue to guide Bassetts.   

 

From 2016, the CSR roadmaps on the following themes are being deployed:

Saint Gobain’s board of directors has approved the CSR dashboard containing eleven KPIs.

These operational indicators illustrate our determination to:

Materialize our principles of conduct and action:

  • Manager training on the Principles of Conduct and Action
  • Compliance with international CSR reference frameworks

Protect the environment:

  • Reduction of CO2 emissions
  • Reduction of environmental events
  • Multi-comfort projects
  • Eco-innovation training

Contribute to local development:

  • Direct and indirect jobs

  •       Ongoing events across the branch network
