Corporate Social Responsibility
At Seppic, our vision is to help everyone enjoy a healthy life in a healthy environment.
Acting responsibly and advancing social, societal, and environmental concerns are at the heart of Seppic's vision. Seppic's Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) program is based on commitments to our people, the environment, and our stakeholders.
Seppic is a company over 75 years old, made up of talented women and men who love what they do, acting every day, everywhere in the world, to meet challenges and explore new paths. Working in safe and healthy conditions, promoting well-being and personal development, and deploying strong ethical values are all essential to Seppic's corporate sustainable development.
A progress-driven approach to protect the environment
Constantly reducing the environmental footprint of Seppic's activities is another major pillar of our CSR program. At Seppic, we have made it a priority to reduce our impact on climate and biodiversity as they relate to our operations and products.
Regarding climate, every year we carry out a carbon assessment in order to take into account global warming issues in our strategy and to reduce our carbon footprint. Seppic's current priorities are to :
- Act in the short term by continuing our carbon emissions reduction at the industrial facility level and by reducing emissions associated with the freight transport to our customers,
- Act in the long term with our eco-design program for new ingredients.
Biodiversity is a complex field, with reference frameworks and procedures still in their infancy. At Seppic, we are conscious of biodiversity because we source raw materials and we have production plants, and because our ingredients are incorporated into finished products that are ultimately used by consumers, patients, and professionals.
With regard to biodiversity, Seppic's current priorities are to:
- Continue developing our actions regarding non-deforestation and sustainable palm oil,
- Act in the long term with our eco-design program for new ingredients, integrating every environmental impact (raw materials, processes, end of lifecycle)
Engaging our external stakeholders
At Seppic, we strive to involve our suppliers and customers alike in serving local communities and the environment. We are mindful that our stakeholders must be better informed about Seppic's CSR commitments and achievements, and have made it a priority to prepare a sustainability report on Seppic’s scope, beyond the report of the Air Liquide group. This report will outline our initiatives and results in terms of our commitments in the social, societal, and environmental fields.
