Paris, December 21, 2021
Mersen’s Board of Directors, at its meeting of December 17, 2021, decided to designate a director responsible for corporate social responsibility (CSR) issues, who will lead and oversee progress on the CSR roadmap set out by the Group’s management. Magali Joëssel, permanent representative of Bpifrance Investissement on Mersen’s Board of Directors, has agreed to take on this role for the duration of her term of office, which expires at the close of the 2023 Annual General Meeting called to approve the 2022 financial statements.
Mersen's Board of Directors believes that social, environmental and ethical issues represent opportunities for value creation and sustainable growth for the Group, and must therefore be central to its strategy. Mersen has always placed human capital at the heart of its business, encouraging all employees to make the most of their skills and reach their full potential, and each site in the countries in which the Group is active to grow its business while respecting local culture. Mersen is already positioned strongly in sustainable development markets such as wind and solar energy, as well as electric vehicles, and has also committed to reducing its environmental footprint. In March 2021, the Group announced that it was targeting an ambitious 20% reduction in the intensity of GHG emissions (Scopes 1 and 2) from its operations by 2025.
Magali Joëssel has been the permanent representative of Bpifrance Investissement on Mersen's Board of Directors since 2013. She will bring to this new role her vision of the public interest as well as her expertise in strategy, consulting and industrialization.
