Séché Environnement adheres to the UN Global Charter and is a member of several social organizations recognized for their efforts in specific areas (Transparency International, French ORÉE association [companies and local authorities], Comité 21 [actors in sustainable development] or French EPE Association [companies for the environment]). It also maintains memberships in professional organizations in the sector in which it does business, such as the FNADE [French Federation of Waste Management Services], FEAD [European Federation of Waste Management Environmental Services], SYPRED [French Union of the French industries specialized in recycling and disposal of hazardous waste], EURITS [European Union for Responsible Incineration and Treatment of Special Waste], CEWEP [Confederation of European Waste-to-Energy Plants], etc.
Séché Environnement employees share the values laid down in the Sustainable Development Charter and its subsidiary documents (the Quality, Health, Safety and Environment Charter and Individual Codes of Conduct and Action). Introducing good practices such as responsible procurement and seeking out vendors who abide by the same principles contribute to the development of unique Group ethic.
Séché Environnement has developed transversal management structures, specifically "Agenda 21-type" structures, or QHSE networks that foster feedback and promote the introduction of innovative techniques underpinning sustainable development at our sites.
Social and environmental elements are going to be increasingly involved in implementing new eco-technologies, a key driver of economic growth. Séché Environnement wants its employees, notably through training, to concern themselves about future generations and to adopt a corporate culture and ethic combining technological, economic and social knowledge with knowhow to anticipate and control risk.
In addition to business and profit-directed approach, it is important to ensure that reporting covers social and environmental indicators relevant to Séché Environnement's activities. This approach enables investment in new processes designed to improve the treatment of new waste and efficiently plan for the protection of natural resources and respect for biodiversity.
