Our CSR commitments
STEF: your long-term partner for growth
Sustainability comes in many guises at STEF, from financial sustainability, which we seek to achieve through successive property acquisitions, to environmental sustainability, by identifying the most effective solutions to reduce the impact of our solutions as far as possible.
One of our proudest achievements is our employees’ active stake in the company’s share capital: almost 70% of our staff are also shareholders.
Responses to climate change
We are fully aware of the issues associated with climate change and have implemented a proactive, sustainable environmental policy. We constantly look for solutions to reduce the impact of our activities on the environment, including:
- limiting greenhouse gas emissions: providing training in eco-driving; using new, less polluting equipment (such as three-wheeled scooters and cycles), mass distribution, etc.;
- saving resources: installing photovoltaic panels in Saintes, reusing rainwater to wash lorries and recycling waste,
- limiting sources of nuisance associated with our activities, particularly in city centres, by trialling a new delivery method.
Building the future together
STEF can guarantee the quality of service to its customers thanks to our employees, their values and their commitment. We endeavour to help them achieve excellence in both their training and career development. We also support equal opportunities by ensuring diversity within the workplace: every employee has the chance to flourish and move up through the business. Equal opportunities are a core part of our management practices and we work hard to develop diversity in our teams. We help employees to develop through our training school, the Institut des Métiers du Froid, and our training programs. We encourage a learning culture that reflects our work.
