Ensuring digital technology enables progress for everyone

As a digital operator, we believe in the power of technology to drive development and progress for individuals, communities and whole countries. When it comes to society, digital technology enables economic development and environmental protection, and has a crucial role to play in value creation and distribution.

Every day we’re working to help as many people as possible make the most of new technologies. Our Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) approach aims to generate value and fully “activate” the benefits of digital technology in society.

 

CSR lies at the heart of the Group’s Essentials 2020strategic plan, which is founded on our commitment to innovation, efficiency and responsibility. All Orange countries are engaged and share the same ambition, contributing through transversal and local initiatives within the framework of their activities and locations.

We have a three-fold approach to sustainable progress.

Trust

Technology is helping to make the world a better place, but it can also cause concern. We position ourselves with our stakeholders as a trusted advisor, supporting and protecting them in their digital lives on a daily basis.
