In 2014, Eurazeo disclosed its comprehensive CSR strategy, incorporating quantified objectives for 2020. This CSR strategy is divided into four actions: invest responsibly, establish exemplary governance, create sustainable value and be a vector of change in society.
At the heart of Eurazeo's value creation model, CSR is integrated into every stage of the investment process: phase of identification of investment opportunities, during the transformation phase, and at the exit phase.
To facilitate the implementation of a pragmatic and value-creating CSR approach, Eurazeo has laid down a CSR roadmap (corresponding to the third part of the CSR strategy) made available to all its portfolio companies. Eurazeo aims is to see it deployed by all of portfolio companies by 2020. The roadmap has three major objectives for 2020:
- provide a solid CSR foundation: 100% of portfolio companies to have deployed the 7 Eurazeo's "CSR essentials"
- identify the challenges and opportunities of sustainable performance: 100% of portfolio companies to have quantified CSR progress targets;
- accelerate and maintain sustainable value creation: 100% of portfolio companies to be involved in at least one CSR acceleration program.
