At Elium, we’re all about creating a better world that’s sustainable, ethical, and supportive.
With Coral, we’re on a mission to make a positive impact on society and the environment while staying true to our values of doing good and promoting sustainable development.
Reduction of our environmental footprint, tackling of climate change and fostering a sustainable work environment through the careful selection of eco-friendly suppliers and tools.
Giving back and making a difference in the team’s local communities. We support charitable giving and volunteerism. All our employees have social contribution days-off to act on that.
Earning trust through privacy, transparency, security, and responsible technology use. We hold ourselves accountable to these principles, ensuring that you can trust us every step of the way.
As part of our drive to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, we have drawn up an ambitious action plan to cut them.
Every year, we commission the German company Global Changer to carry out a carbon audit.
Since 2021, we have put in place actions such as replacing company cars with a mobility plan, implementing a teleworking policy that has reduced our office space by 66%, and consolidating our IT infrastructure in 2 ‘green’ data centres.
These initiatives have enabled us to reduce our CO2 (market based) emissions from 62,3 tonnes in 2021 to 54,7 tonnes in 2022.
To formalise our ambition and measure our progress, we have joined the EcoVadis network.
EcoVadis mission is to provide reliable, globally recognised sustainability ratings and insights, enabling all companies to reduce risk, drive improvement and accelerate positive impact on our planet and society.
An initial assessment made in June 2022 gave us a global score of 45, in line with the market average.
The next measurement will take place in the next few weeks. Stay tuned!
Taking a day off work is always a welcomed break from the daily grind. It can also be a way to give back to the community. Donating our time to a charity or non-profit organization can be incredibly rewarding, and can make a real difference in the lives of those in need. 💖
As part of our Coral programme, the company offers the possibility to all Eliumers to take one extra day off per year to help a good cause. It’s also the occasion for a team building activity since we encourage the Eliumers to do it in small groups.
After a participatory selection process, 3 non-profit organisations were selected:
– Natagora, where we can participate in the maintenance of a natural habitat managed by this highly respected organisation
– Help Animals, where we can assist the feeding of abandoned or badly treated animals (sheep, cats, goats, pigs, cows, horses) and help with the cleaning of their enclosures.
– Oxfam, the charitable organisation focusing on the alleviation of global poverty where we will help sorting and distributing food and clothing.
The first activities are currently being organised and will take place in late summer or early autumn.
A team lunch and seminar at the Froidmont’s farm, where unemployed adults are trained in catering and organic market gardening for socio-professional inclusion. The approach focuses on ecological transition and sustainability, offering healthy, environmentally-friendly food.
