An ethical approach to data and AI
We are committed to an ethical and reasoned use of artificial intelligence. In 2020, we became the first company to be awarded the GEEIS-AI label. We also signed the charter for inclusive AI, which is complemented by our own Data and Artificial Intelligence Ethics Charter.

Diversity and gender equality
We believe that diversity and gender equality at all levels of the company are powerful levers for economic performance and employee well-being. One of our priorities is to increase the number of women in technical and digital professions where women are currently under-represented.
In 2019, we became the first company in the French stock market index, which tracks the 40 largest French stocks (CAC 40), to sign a worldwide agreement on professional equality, work-life balance and the fight against discrimination and violence.
By 2025, our objective is to reach:
- 33% of women in our total workforce and 40% of women in our Leader/Executive pool
- 25% of women in technical jobs
We have a very strong commitment to reduce electronic waste (e-waste). With that in mind, it is a top priority to take back products we sold and destroy them in a safe manner. Read more about our E-waste Management program in India.
