"Here at Spac, CSR is viewed as a real development opportunity. Our CSR policy is entirely in line with that of the Colas group and with our Horizons 2024 business plan." Christophe Dugail

Sustainable development of settlements

Sustainable development of settlements

Offering our customers and users the solutions that respond to the challenges of sustainable development of settlements 

Environmental and climate challenges – along with changes in usage – bring with them both constraints and opportunities for Spac. To that end, Spac is developing services and offerings related to sustainable development concerns. The goal is to develop and deliver responsible infrastructure solutions of the future around water and energy storage, transport and distribution that are safe, sustainable, accessible, shared and connected.

Low-carbon and biodiversity strategy

Low-carbon and biodiversity strategy

Implementing a low-carbon and biodiversity strategy to contribute to the respecting of our planet

In the face of the urgency of climate change, Colas undertook a strategic analysis in 2020 that resulted in the compilation of a low-carbon roadmap centred around five focus areas that were rolled out within its subsidiary entities, including Spac.

In December 2020, Colas announced an ambitious emission-reduction goal that is compatible with the Paris Agreement.
The activities of Spac are such that the organisation has significant interactions with biodiversity. Spac has also committed to a biodiversity strategy designed to develop and promote ecological niche areas.

Health and safety

Embedding a health and safety culture to deliver great protection

Health and safety are major focus areas for Spac. Reducing health and accident risks at the workplace or on the road are good not just for business partners but also for users, residents and partners among others. Spac’s objective is to embed a strong health and safety culture.

A responsible supply chain

A responsible supply chain

Creating a responsible supply chain anchored on sustainable performance

Purchases made by Spac account for a significant proportion of the business’s turnover. What we do in response to CSR issues should extend across the external resources with which we work - including suppliers, sub-contractors, products and services. To that end, Spac has put together - with its suppliers and sub-contractors -  a supply chain that is responsible, and that is anchored on sustainable performance.

Ethics and compliance

Ethics and compliance

Consolidating an exemplary ethics and compliance culture    
 

Acts of corruption and complicity in such acts are major economic and financial risks for the business, as well as being reputational risks. Critical to the Group’s values is the assurance that Spac business partners and third-party providers work to rigorous ethical standards. Spac underpins its compliance culture by identifying risks related to corruption and breaches of human rights - it does that by communicating its ethical values and compliance rules, and by putting in place checks around procedural compliance and ethical processes.
