Corporate Social Responsibility

Our approach to sustainability at Foyer Group

Foyer Global Health fully commits to the global Corporate Social Responsibility governance of the Foyer Group and engages actively in the social actions initiated.

The 5 pillars of the CSR committee

  • The CSR Committee of Foyer Group consists of  nine members. The role of the commitee is to provide regular updates and recommendations on sustainability matters and ensures Foyer Group complies with ESG regulations.
  • Five of the members are the representants of the main cross-functional themes. They are the sponsors and main touchpoints for these themes. Their role is to evaluate the positive impact of the CSR strategy and give advice and recommandation to the Executive Board of Foyer.
  • The representants are supported by the work groups on the same themes. The work groups suggest actions and projects to the representants who evaluate their consistency and relevance for the Foyer group.

csr committee

We are all very proud of being part of this adventure with Foyer Group. CSR is also an essential part of Foyer Global Health’s strategy and vision. When contributing to Foyer’s various projects, we achieve great results that benefit all the entities of the group. As part of the Ecology work group, we are committed to accompany the Group in the transition to become a low carbon company, and make sure that our impact on the environment is minimal. We installed solar panels and beehives on the building’s roof, implemented innovative water solutions to collect rainwater. For the past few years, printing is done on recycled paper only. We are all doing this on a voluntary basis; each employee can be an active player and make a positive impact.
