FEHR Groupe’s CSR initiatives are part of a proactive approach that seeks to achieve a balance between economic, social, environmental and issues in its activities and in its interactions with its stakeholders (employee, customers, suppliers, the local community, etc.).
As a responsible business, all our production sites are certified to ISO 14001– ISO 9001 - ISO 45001, as well as ISO 26000 for Social Responsibility.
Ever since the company was created, we have been determined to progress continually and be an example of professionalism on all our markets. The success of all our projects necessarily involves constantly seeking to improve in the areas of quality, safety and the environment.
The aim of FEHR Groupe’s policy on quality, health and safety, the improvement of working conditions and respect for the environment is to guarantee customer satisfaction by meeting their requirements on quality, the environment and social responsibility.
Our CSR initiatives not only have an effect on our relations with our customers, they also play a role internally. This includes:
Our approach to social responsibility rests on our common values, which are shared across all FEHR Groupe’s businesses.
Our approach consists of:
We are committed to environmental management on all our sites, in our products and in our multi-modal logistics.
Our company undertakes to minimise its impact on the environment by controlling its consumption of raw materials, reducing emissions, recycling waste, developing logistics solutions that use the waterways and rail piggybacking, integrated exploitation of materials.
We ensure that we progress in all these areas, among other things, by:
Our environmental management system focuses, among other things, on direct procurement of raw materials, using non-polluting products, recycling waste and limiting our energy consumption.
A strategy of locating our sites in the vicinity of major economic centres has enabled us to off local responses to our customers’ projects, thereby reducing the impact of transport. The concrete elements are delivered without packaging and containers are returnable.
Our products do not need any shuttering or release agents on the construction site. Construction times are shortened and therefore the nuisance they cause is reduced: less noise and less dust.
Our policy of continuous improvement on our production sites contributes to creating solutions that are beneficial to the well-being of our employees, but also our customers.
It enables to us to protect our workers and improve their working conditions, in particular by reducing arduous tasks, the Precast wall Intégral product and the Fehr container being perfect illustrations of this.
In order to constantly improve quality with a view to the satisfaction of our customers, Fehr Groupe has developed a quality system that meets the requirements of standards ISO 14001– ISO 9001 - ISO 45001. To achieve this, different processes and procedures have been set up relating to the production and delivery of our products, and checks are carried out on a regular basis.
Listening to our customers and seeking to satisfy them in terms of lead times, product quality and services is one of our priorities. Tight control of our production processes, inventory management, industrial metrology and equipment maintenance enables us to meet those requirements.
