Astek is committed to sustainable development and has signed up to the Global Compact
Sustainable development is not limited to environmental issues. Respect for human rights or the fight against corruption are also key factors in ensuring controlled and sustainable development. At his or her own particular level, each person can contribute to the development of these values either as a citizen, as a working person or as a company.
Astek is a firm believer in the civic responsibility of companies and the growing importance of sustainable development as part of our business relationships. Consequently, on May 31, 2005 we signed the declaration of support for the principles enshrined in the Global Compact. We are fully committed to incorporating these principles within our strategy, our corporate culture and our operating methods.
Astek in action!
As a community-minded responsible company, Astek is keen to be an active participant when it comes to improving its social, economic and ecological environment. This commitment was officially enshrined in the declaration of support for the principles of the Global Compact. This made it possible to further encourage certain practices which were already in place and to introduce new ones too. Among these initiatives we should mention:
Environmental protection: Each year, Astek introduces firm measures intended to reduce its impact on the environment. In 2010, Astek introduced an ecological and community-minded initiative: the selective sorting of its waste. To do so, the group used the services of a natural resource preservation company which encourages the integration of disabled workers (a particularly vulnerable population group) within the labour market. Using a company of this type for the recycling of our waste enables us to go an extra step, beyond simply protecting the planet. Our view of sustainable development is one which also encompasses fairness and hospitality.
The principle of non-discrimination in recruitment: The group ensures that only the skill and personality of an applicant are taken into account during the recruitment process. The group proudly displays this commitment through its "pro-diversity" logo which accompanies its advertisements on numerous recruitment websites.
