For the 4th consecutive year, nearly 200 operations managers gathered together throughout the Group's 12 regions for a day dedicated to Safety and the Environment.
In 2015, the subject is chemical products, in order to understand the regulatory changes (CLP, ICPE, …) and to prevent risks, both to our colleagues and our Clients.
As a major player in its field, Descours & Cabaud is aware of its contribution and its responsibility towards Society.
The Group took part in the endeavours of the Goods to Give association (Agence du Don en Nature) by providing batches of clothing, Netbooks (operation "Solidarité Femmes 2014"), as well as the 11th campaign of the Arbres de la Solidarité by the Foyer Notre Dame des Sans Abri.
The expectations of our clients, our knowledge, the products and our suppliers are all changing; therefore our range of responsible products must constantly progress.
Three workshops were organised in September 2014 for the Product Managers of the Group in order to improve the performance of our responsible purchasing policy.
Our first active participation in the "Job dans la Ville" professional integration program resulted in 13 sponsors, 2 visits to the Vénissieux agency, 2 participations in the "Cafés de l'Emploi", 5 company internships and one permanent contract!
A new season of sponsoring and partnership has begun with the Sport dans la Ville association, and the Descours & Cabaud Group has once again announced its participation!
To mark the launch of the 1st PROLIANS COMPLETE catalogue, the Group is proud to present its selection of sustainable, eco-responsible products.
This initiative is supported by the suppliers, and its aim is to offer products that meet a number of key sustainability criteria, important at every stage in the life cycle of the products.
This selection will be continually updated, and currently includes more than 1500 products!
The sorting, recycling and recovery of waste produced by our activities is at the core of the Positive Program.
A national project to quantify the waste, its nature and logistics has been undertaken. It will achieve a significant decrease in volume and costs generated.
«One man's waste is another man's raw material»
In April 2013, the Environmental Code introduced an eco-tax for household waste management derived from chemical products, depending on the nature of the product and the volume of the containers.
Included in selling prices, this eco-tax ensures the treatment of this household hazardous waste (HHW) and limits the impact on both environment and human health.
Handed out and commented upon during each colleague's first day in the company, the “Environmental Security Booklet” has been given a new look!
As a pillar of the CSR initiative of the Group, the Security and Environment aspects are therefore made part of the Positive Program.
The environmental organisation Ecofolio, in the context of its new accreditation, has implemented an eco-differentiated scale to promote good practices.
For its 2014 voluntary statement, in addition to the tonnage, the Group shall apply this bonus/penalty system depending on the nature and the origin of the paper fibre as well as its recyclability.
Seeking to maintain a healthy and safe work environment, the Group has improved its direct and visual communication tools.
Each month, the Security & Environment network can therefore efficiently relay targeted information to people in the field as part of the Positive Program.
The Group is continuing its sponsorship of the Sport dans la Ville association and joins the "Job dans la Ville" program intended to encourage the training and professional integration of young people in companies, as early as 14 years old.
12 colleagues from the Group headquarters chose to sponsor a youngster.
