CSR

Corporate social responsibility is now well integrated in the Group’s different enterprise processes and business lines (business operations, purchasing, human resources, maintenance, etc.).
It is based on a dynamic structured approach organised around three programmes:

THINK GREEN.png
Think Green
(environment)

THINK PEOPLE.png
Think People
(employment & workplace conditions)

THINK LOCAL.png
Think Local
(social progress)

These programmes are deployed through a continuous improvement approach, on a cross-functional level and taking into account the specific activities of the Group’s three business divisions (Live, Exhibitions and Venues).

Several long-term initiatives have been implemented destined to structurally consolidate the policy pursued over the last seven years.
