… underpinned by strong commitments
Edenred’s CSR approach, known as “Ideal”, is integrated into its strategic plan. Ideal addresses 12 of the 17 United Nations Sustainable Development Goals and is measured using a set of ten indicators. This policy is organized into three areas:
People – Edenred aims to improve quality of life for all its stakeholders.
Planet – Edenred works to protect the environment, in particular by reducing its carbon footprint, its consumption of resources, and its waste.
Progress – Edenred develops its activities ethically throughout its value chain, while protecting the data of all its stakeholders.
2020, a year of supporting our ecosystem more than ever
At the centre of a system shaped by economic, social and environmental megatrends, Edenred designs products to meet essential needs in four areas: food, mobility, incentives and corporate payment.
During these unprecedented times, public authorities and companies have called on Edenred to set up earmarked funds programs, which help provide targeted stimulus to the economy. Thanks to its unique digital platform, the Group was able to meet these requests by developing increasingly innovative programs in ever shorter time frames.
In this way, the crisis has confirmed the validity of our programs and our contribution to making the world of work a better place for everyone, through access to healthier food, more environmentally friendly products and greener mobility.
With the firm belief that growth is only meaningful if it is shared, Edenred is also a responsible digital leader, sustainably committed to employees, businesses, merchants and public authorities.
In line with its CSR approach aimed at sharing the benefits of growth with those who need it, Edenred created a relief fund to support its ecosystem through the consequences of the Covid-19 epidemic. The “More than Ever” fund represents a pledge of up to €15 million and serves the following three objectives:
- protect Edenred employees, notably the most vulnerable, in countries with little or no health care coverage or social safety net;
- support partner merchants – restaurant owners first among them – who have been severely impacted by strict stay-at-home orders in the various countries where Edenred operates;
- provide assistance for clients and users of Edenred products, for example truck drivers in the Fleet & Mobility Solutions segment.
