over fifteen years of commitments
Our Group is founded on a set of core values that guide the principles of its actions with all stakeholders and reflected in a long-standing commitment to sustainable development

We pay particular attention to ensuring respect for human rights. Directly in line with our membership of the Global Compact and with the 2006 Group-wide global agreement on basic social rights, we contribute to creating a shared dialogue on human rights in the framework of the Industry Dialogue, a group of global telecommunications operators and manufacturers set up to advance freedom of expression and respect for privacy through telecommunications technology, both key challenges for our industry.
We have also introduced specific anti-corruption measures.
