Why do we engage in CSR?

For us, a CSR approach also means developing an innovation strategy to optimize how and what we market. It drives financial performance, and we believe that looking to continually improve processes and products not only plays a role in better productivity but it contributes to a more sustainable company that everyone will benefit from.

Our desire to conduct ethical business and to connect on a local level and with stakeholders is in line with our four fundamental values: team spirit, agility, passion for new technologies and customer focus. Measuring your business’ impact and that of its activities in an aim to improve it means moving towards sustainable development and environmental protection. And by advocating responsible governance, we unite all our employees.

How do we achieve CSR?

Our organization and governance

AMA, CSR is more than just the two people on the CSR team, but rather a full and collaborative engagement from all AMAmates, with strong leadership from our president, our Board of Directors and our 17 CSR coordinators (one person per team and per subsidiary), who work to implement this policy on a daily basis.

The Board of Directors has been trained in CSR, and regular meetings are organized, as shown with the last six that were dedicated to the topic in 2021.

Our stakeholders are an integral part of our business.They include our customers, banking partners, suppliers, accounting firms, legal entities, local organizations and associations. Because we want to keep moving forward, we highly value their opinions and their expectations, and that’s why we embarked on the process of consultation.

As part of our CSR strategy, we have surrounded ourselves with experts, and in 2021 we contacted the Good Planet foundation and the Déclic Agency to assist us with environmental issues and the B-Corp certification process.

Defining, measuring and evaluating our procedures is also key to improvement.

Our “raison d’être”

Enhance professionals’ lives while preserving the planet

First, we wanted to clearly establish and structure our CSR strategy. Déclic Agency guided us in developing the methodology. We learned that the process of defining our “WHY” federates the entire company. The Board of Directors met to begin that process together. Then, the entire staff was asked to draw out two definitions. And finally, the Board completed the final version. The project was a team effort that will now serve as support for our engagements
