Putting Sustainability at the heart of Excelya

Taking care of tomorrow

Sustainability means much more to us than just ticking compliance checklists. Excelya goes above and beyond in our efforts to minimise our carbon footprint. For us, it is an essential way of futureproofing our business, and taking care of people, our planet and the better future that we want to be a part in creating.

In recognition of our efforts, we were awarded a silver Ecovadis rating in both 2021 and 2022, with particularly good results for our diversity, labour, and environmental policies.

A note from our CEOs, Frédéric Paqueville and François Moisson

Our values and commitments direct us in everything we do: in how we serve and meet the needs of our clients, how we work with our partners and how we create and sustain our abilities and talents.

Sustainability and its Alignment with Employee Experience

Another aspect of our goal is to offer the most exciting employee experience to our team members. We are convinced that the perfect employee experience should enable Excelyates to apply of their personal values during their professional endeavours. This is, first and foremost, defined by how the company and its managers act.

As sustainability is a core value that most of our employees hold and value, it is a requirement that Excelya prioritizes our CSR goals in order to be consistent and empowering, as we claim to be.

Our Sustainability Plan

The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, adopted by all United Nations Member States in 2015, provides a shared blueprint for peace and prosperity for people and the planet, now and into the future.

At its heart are the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) which are an important initiative for achieving significant progress on global economic, social and environmental challenges.

Although directed at governments, the private sector and civil society play an important role in support of governments’ national plans.

In 2019, Excelya launched an initiative exploring the opportunities the 17 SDGs represent and identified 6 SDGs that resonate with its purpose and strategy.

These are key areas where Excelya can make the most positive contribution through efforts implemented across our company and where we will report on our progress.
