Bouygues’ corporate social responsibility policy aims at limiting and then reducing the impact of its operations, namely to protect eco-systems, help develop the areas where its entities operate, take account of stakeholder expectations, respect employees, and improve the accessibility of offers and services, etc.
CSR issues are handled separately by the subsidiaries, which are closer to the specific issues pertaining to their operations. The parent company of the Group coordinates the overall policy and ensures that best practices are circulated and shared. The Group Sustainable Development-Quality Safety Environment (QSE) department oversees the organisation and coordination of group-wide committees, seminars and conferences, which are useful opportunities for developing practices able to meet sustainable development challenges relating to many different cross-disciplinary issues (Sustainable development, QSE, Extra-financial reporting, Energy & Carbon, Purchasing and CSR).
Top CSR Challenges
As part of its corporate social responsibility policy and to better ensure the future viability of its business models, the Group maintains constant dialogue with its stakeholders.
This dialogue with stakeholders has enabled the Group to pinpoint its priority CSR challenges via the use of materiality assessments:
 The purpose of these assessments is to establish a suitable hierarchy of issues relating to sustainable-development strategy, taking into account
both corporate priorities and the expectations of various stakeholders. In 2018, the Group’s five subsidiaries launched materiality assessments
on their respective business areas. These are scheduled to be completed in 2019 and reinforce the efforts of the Group and its subsidiaries
to listen ever more attentively to their stakeholders.
