In keeping with this vision, the Group is pursuing its CSR commitments. The URD includes a new roadmap laying out the CSR priorities for 2022-2025, following the successful completion of the previous roadmap. These priorities are as follows:
- Reduce the environmental impact of its products and industrial operations. In this respect, the Group is committed to reducing its GHG emissions intensity and its water consumption and to increasing its industrial waste recycling.
- Work with partners already committed to sustainable development or willing to take initiatives in this area. To this end, Mersen will continue its efforts to assess its suppliers and implement improvement plans where necessary.
- Help employees, communities and talent grow while paying the utmost respect to human rights, health and safety, while promoting diversity. The Group has set targets to encourage gender diversity at work and to improve inclusion of people with disabilities, to promote a social responsibility policy for all in all countries and to pursue its efforts to ensure well-being, health and safety at work.
