BE FREE, BE RESPONSIBLE

Square has committed to a continuous improvement CSR approach since its creation
“Be free, be responsible”: these words, summarizing Square’s CSR commitment, hold as true as they have in the past. Together, we continue giving them their true meaning.
Jérôme Boucheron, Square’s President
The current health crisis is unprecedented. For more than a year, it has dramatically and durably shaken our economic and welfare sytems, challenged our decision-making mechanisms and – imposing upon each of us sacrifices to which we have complied with some level of reluctance – forced us to rethink our relationship with others, with the fragility and sustainability of our social and environmental models.
In front of the difficulties faced by our employees, by our Clients and our suppliers, our group has risen to the new responsibilities that have fallen upon us, the first of which being the need to maintain the trust that each of these stakeholders has placed in us. 
The 4 challenges that Square has set out to address in the frame of its CSR approach – Have a sustainable economic model, Make employees happy and fulfilled at work, Having a positive impact on Society, and Make our clients trust the future – are therefore all the more relevant!
First and foremost keen on ensuring the wellbeing at work of our employees and the success of the missions assigned to us by our Clients (in a context that pushes us each day to reinvent our ways of working, interacting, forming relationships), we have set ourselves in order to best meet such requirements by taking specific measures.
By developing new partnerships, increasing remote activities and contact opportunities, by running surveys in order to best adapt our management to the expectations of our employees during lockdown, while allowing them to keep a physical activity thanks to sport classes provided by Gymlib, we took to heart to keep the proximity of the relationship we wish to have with each of them, which constitutes, since its creation, one of the cornerstones of our group.
The urgency of the situation has not, for that matter, made us forget our responsibilities in terms of environmental protection.
The implementation of the tool Toovalu has allowed us to carry out our Scope 3 carbon footprint, an essential datapoint that will serve as a basis to set, as early as in 2021, concrete objectives for the reduction of our carbon footprint.

Let us all be actors of the change. At home and at work, our actions leave a more or less significant environmental footprint. We can act at an individual level and participate, with the group, to the limitation of this negative footprint of our planet.
