Corporate Social Responsibility commitments

The group's commitments in terms of social responsibility

The AB7 Group's CSR commitments are based on values shared by its two sites, in France and the United States.

AB7 is able to maintain control over its actions and their impact by internalising all of its skills and making very limited use of subcontractors and external service providers.

AB7 favours local purchases, in France and in Florida, and encourages the development of natural, sustainable alternatives and eco-labelled products.

The group's management and human resources department are committed to concrete actions in the social field: job creation, retention, training, health and safety.

The Group's management and its shareholders are committed to a process of continuous improvement.
