Corporate Social Responsibility

This new code of ethics expresses Crédit Agricole Group’s commitment to behaviour that reflects all its values and principles of action vis-à-vis its customers, mutual shareholders, shareholders, as well as its suppliers and all stakeholders with whom it engages. It acts as a responsible employer.

Our Code of ethics, beyond merely applying all the legal, regulatory and industry rules governing our various businesses, reflects our desire to do even more to better serve our customers, who have been our raison d’être since day one.

Ethics charter

CACEIS Code of Conduct

Since 2017, the Crédit Agricole Group has adopted an Ethics Charter that emphasises its values of proximity, responsibility and solidarity and affirms its commitments, identity and principles of action.  A Code of Conduct supplements the commitments of the Charter. 

CACEIS is fully committed to this and, in the same vein, has defined its own Code of Conduct. This code represents the foundation of the ethical and professional conduct expected from all employees, regardless of their situation and function within the CACEIS group.

Gender Equality Index

Equality between women and men has been declared a major national cause for the five-year period by the President of the French Republic. As such, legislative measures have been adopted enabling companies to measure the wage gap between women and men by calculating a gender equality index. This index, out of 100 points, is based on the calculation of the following 5 indicators:

Thus, for CACEIS in France, the 2018 gender equality index is: 89 points.

Our commitment: protecting resources

CACEIS pays particular attention to our greenhouse gas emissions, consumption of energy, water and commodities (paper), waste recycling and the impact of financial products on sustainable consumer spending.

To take just one example, CACEIS was involved in the planting of 8,000 trees in four forests in France in 2015. This initiative reflects the commitment on the part of Crédit Agricole S.A shareholders to eliminate hard copies of documents associated with the General Meeting. Consequently, a tree was planted for every e-convocation.
