Plastic Omnium and its CSR

Because industrial activities have an impact on people and the environment, it is essential that an organization such as Plastic Omnium be part of a sustainable development approach. For this reason, and for the past 15 years, the company has taken concrete initiatives to continuously improve itself. The RobecoSAM rating, which places Plastic Omnium in 7th place worldwide among automotive suppliers and 3rd in Europe, reflects the Group's ongoing efforts.

10 key dates to define Plastic Omnium’s CSR

  • 2001 : ISO 14 001 certification and EHS management
  • 2003 : Engagement in United Nations Global Compact

This commitment is a major milestone in Plastic Omnium's CSR commitment and guides the company's actions, such as the internal "code of conduct" or the "Supplier Charter". Initiated by Kofi Annan in July 2000, it is a voluntary commitment program in which companies are invited to respect ten universally accepted principles relating to human rights, employment standards, environment and the anti-corruption fight. Each year, members must certify the implementation of these principles in a "report on progress".

  • 2006 : OHSAS 18001 certification
  • 2008 : CO² emissions management ; Chemicals management ; Top Planet program
  • 2009 : Risk management
  • 2012 : Engagement with communities (Focus Hope, Magic Bus projects)
  • 2013 : ISO 50001 certification
  • 2015 : CSR performance assessment by independent third parties
  • 2016 : Supplier CSR Charter
  • 2017 : Signature of French Business Climate Pledge ; Appointment of a CSR Manager ; Performance of a materiality analysis.

Keep growing respecting people and the environment

65/100 or 13/20 is good, especially since RobecoSAM's overall automotive sector ratings have dropped from 9.8/20 in 2015 to 8.4/20 in 2017. To improve this score and to improve our practices, the effort will continue year after year.
