Making sustainable development a priority

We’re working to ensure our corporate and social responsibility commitment has a positive impact on people, society and the planet.

Orange ensures sustainable growth by making social, societal and environmental issues a priority. This is essential for preventing risks relating to our activities and opening up opportunities for innovation through stakeholder dialogue. As a responsible operator, we promote positive social, societal, environmental and energy transitions brought about by digital technology.

We want our technological contribution to be beneficial, ethical and respectful of human rights and kinder to the environment to give individuals, communities and whole nations the confidence to take advantage of the digital world we are helping to shape.

Our ambition is to reinforce our commitment to reducing digital inequalities by offering inclusive solutions that are accessible to as many people as possible. We strive to ensure that everyone we connect is empowered to act responsibly, exercise their free will with technology and become enlightened digital citizens.

Our 5 commitments

Our CSR actions are founded on 5 commitments, which are supported and delivered thanks to our teams and partners throughout all of our operating countries.

Governing CSR principles

Our CSR policy is based on fundamental principles including: ethics and anti-corruption compliance programme, vigilance and duty of care, close collaboration with stakeholders* and ensuring the entire value chain (from suppliers to consumers) adopt more responsible practices.

Our governance bodies (which are dedicated to executives, investors and directors) ensure compliance with our policies and approach, and enable us to report on the results we achieve.

* within the public and private sector as well as civil society, business leaders, suppliers, shareholders, employees and trade unions.

What is CSR?

  • "Sustainable development means development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs." Mrs Gro Harlem Brundtland, Norwegian Prime Minister (1987).
  • Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is how companies approach, and are accountable for, sustainable development. It’s the process whereby social, environmental, ethical, human and consumer rights are integrated into business activities and corporate strategy.
  • CSR brings together all of the practices and policies that respect people’s rights and freedoms and promote employee well-being, that have a positive impact on society and that respect the environment, all while remaining economically viable. It is based on compliance with legislation, collective regulation and international standards.
