Geoffroy de Lamalle, Chief Executive Officer of eProseed, is proud to announce that the firm has joined the global family of companies supporting the United Nations Global Compact, the world’s largest corporate sustainability initiative.
The UN Global Compact is a voluntary initiative based on CEO commitments to implement universal sustainability principles and to take steps to support UN goals. The mission of the UNGC is to encourage private companies to align strategies and operations with universal principles on human rights, labor, environment and anti-corruption, and take actions that advance societal goals. The ultimate goal for the businesses adhering to the UN Global Compact is to share the responsibility for achieving a better world.
Joining a Global Movement of Sustainable Companies
“eProseed is experiencing consistent development in both domestic and foreign markets. We export our Oracle expertise within and beyond Europe, from the Middle East to Australia and Latin America, providing professional services and software tools to multiple private and public organizations all over the world”, explains Geoffroy de Lamalle, Chief Executive Officer of eProseed. In this context of international expansion, it is logical that eProseed has chosen the UN Global Compact as the foundation for its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) policy.
By joining this initiative, eProseed commits to set in motion changes to business operations so that the UNGC values and its Ten Principles become part of its strategy, culture and day-to-day operations.
eProseed will advocate the UN Global Compact principles and communicate on the associated steps taken via all available communication channels, including the publication of an annual Communication on Progress (COP) through which eProseed will regularly report to all stakeholders of the company on ongoing activities, progress and outcomes. In the future, these will be published on both the Global Compact and the eProseed websites, where they will be available for download.
“More specifically, we will focus our efforts on helping local communities by volunteering and donating, promoting local organic agriculture and healthy eating habits, ensuring fairtrade and sustainable office supplying, and recycling and reducing our carbon footprint in our offices”, underlines Lydia Noiré, Chief People Officer at eProseed.
Citizens of the World
“At eProseed we believe that technology and innovation are the main drivers for social, economic and environmental advancements. We are committed to conduct our business in an ethical and socially responsible manner, in a way that benefits our customers, employees, partners, suppliers and the wider community, and has a positive impact on the local communities where eProseed is present”, states Geoffroy de Lamalle.
UN Global Compact participants across industries are changing the way they operate to implement responsible practices and developing innovative solutions to address poverty and inequality, and support education, health and peace, amongst other areas. Private businesses – especially those with global ambitions like eProseed – can take shared responsibility for achieving a better world, notably by anchoring deeply the values promoted by the UNGC into the fabric of their organizations, one of the essential components of which is their workforces.
“The people at eProseed are explorers and innovators. They seek to see the business through the eyes of the customer, regardless of nationality or culture, and strive to make their expertise and commitment, along with eProseed’s products, contribute as far as possible to the digitized global economy”, says Lydia Noiré. “Our people are also citizens of the world. They come not only from different EU members states, but many among them originate from all parts of the world – Brazil, Guatemala, Lebanon, Morocco, Syria, Togo – to name just a few countries”, she points out.
