What they say about us

The views of others are essential

To progress in its sustainable development process, Groupe SEB employs an internal evaluation system (reporting tool, indicator monitoring, contribution from the internal audit, etc.) but it is also very attentive to external opinions, whether coming from corporate social responsibility rating agencies, socially responsible investment actors or other representatives of its stakeholders. 


Responsible performance rating agencies

 Vigeo: an evaluation report every two years 

vigeoVigeo is the leading corporate social responsibility rating agency in Europe. Since 2005 it has been drawing up reports on the social responsibility of Groupe SEB on the basis of a set of companies in the "Technology and Appliances" sector. This report is published on average every two years, and is based on the analysis of six areas: Environment, Human Resources, Corporate Behaviour, Human Rights, Community Involvement and Corporate Governance.

Throughout these reports, Vigeo's assessment of Groupe SEB has remained positive overall. With these results and the many actions undertaken in each of the six areas assessed by Vigeo, Groupe SEB has been selected in two indices Vigeo: Europe 120 and Eurozone 120.
