CORPORATE SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY

For many years, Socomore has been working for the protection of women and men, the preservation of its environment and the economic development of its local community.

In this year 2022, we have mobilized our teams to formalize our actions and then to be able to share our experience and our dynamic with the external stakeholders with concrete actions. This is just the beginning, as this report does not yet cover all sites on some indicators. The important thing is to keep this momentum and dynamism with all our stakeholders in order to move forward and to continue to be legitimate and responsible for the challenges that we have to face together.

We are proud today to present this first CSR report for the year 2021, which highlights the dynamics of our teams. This report will certainly evolve in the coming years, as well as our indicators and objectives.

"We remain faithful to our conviction: sharing creates value. This is the Socoway* : our way of reinventing ourselves every day to build, together, the Socomore of tomorrow."

Since it was founded in 1972, SOCOMORE has always sought to make a positive impact on its stakeholders. In recent years, building on strong growth and driven by its exceptional commitment, SOCOMORE has striven to place sharing at the heart of its growth. Referred to as the SOCOWAY, this approach is reflected in the belief that sharing SOCOMORE’s added value activates a virtuous circle that enables the creation of new financial, social, societal, and innovation assets.

On an everyday basis, the SOCOWAY manifests itself in our culture, our operations, and the connections we forge with our employees and ecosystems. In concrete terms, it is reflected in the creation of the Aerochemicals alliance, for example, and the birth of Socopolis. The SOCOWAY also involves developing employee shareholding, supporting our staff’s humanitarian, sporting, or cultural endeavors, and hosting start-ups in some of our offices. The SOCOWAY also concerns our methods for sharing the value we create. We are doing this through a Profit Sharing Group, staff co-ownership of SOCOPOLIS SAS, and our drive to extend employee shareholding where feasible (without undue complexity given our size). The SOCOWAY is strengthened by its diversity and is our method of ceaselessly reinventing so that, together, we can build the SOCOMORE of tomorrow.

SOCOMORE’s employees are the primary actors of the SOCOWAY. We encourage them to deploy and spread this spirit across all subsidiaries of the SOCOMORE group, since it is only through the mobilization of each and every one of us that we will achieve our ambitions as responsible chemists.
