BE FREE, BE RESPONSIBLE

Square Management has committed to a continuous improvement CSR approach since its creation

For Square Management, loving and understanding freedom means, above all, accepting the responsibilities that exercising it entails—a concept fully encompassed in the motto that forms the cornerstone of our CSR approach: “To be free is to be responsible!

Jérôme Boucheron, Square Management’s President

“Given the difficulty we face in finding reference points, in envisioning a collectively desirable horizon, in agreeing on an objective—whose ultimate purpose, although widely contested in its means, remains fiercely debated—today, businesses must contribute, within their limits, to an unprecedented conceptual renewal that the economic and societal era demands. This is extracted from the latest CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) report published by Square Management.

Several recent events have reaffirmed the relevance of these lines. In France (pension reform, the relationship between workers and work, water management…), in the United States (the Biden administration granting permission for oil drilling in Alaska…), in Brazil, Germany, China, and other countries, daily examples abound that highlight the challenges imposed on our organizations by the imperative of ecological transition.

The exasperation of some towards ‘eco-activism,’ and the despair or weariness of others facing ‘ecological inaction,’ unfortunately tend to radicalize opinions, deny or refuse complexity, and seek immediate—and inevitably caricatured—solutions in programs that further undermine the compromises upon which our democracies precariously rely.

In this context, while businesses certainly cannot do everything, they can do a lot!

As organizations, they are—and should be—the laboratory for a future that necessarily reconciles the desirable and the possible. The four pillars on which Square Management’s commitments to corporate social responsibility rest—‘having a sustainable economic model, ensuring the happiness and fulfillment of employees at work, having a positive impact on society, and instilling confidence in our clients’ future—fully illustrate this ambition.

Square Management’s goal of becoming the European leader in strategy and organizational consulting by 2027 obliges our group more than ever to integrate sustainability parameters into each of its interventions, to work towards strengthening dialogue and relationships among all stakeholders, as well as promoting overall principles of mutual aid and cooperation.

‘The worst threat to freedom […], is to unlearn how to love it or no longer understand it.’ — Bernanos, Georges, Freedom, for What? (La liberté, pour quoi faire?), Paris, Gallimard, 1953 (reprinted 2017).”
