In a world of limited natural resources, we believe that reducing our environmental impacts on the entire life cycle of our products and services is an essential condition for sustainability and competitiveness.
Sofrecom’s CSR approach is central to our company’s strategy and to our everyday actions.
Our priority? Conceptualising simple eco-friendly actions for all our employees, and implementing and deploying digital solutions that take care of the environment. The Sofrecom engineering teams are consistently supported by environmental experts who monitor our solutions to ensure that they are environmentally friendly.
To do this, our plan is structured around the following key areas:
Set up selective sorting in France
For several years, Sofrecom in collaboration with LemonTri, accompanies and motivates its employees to selective sorting in its offices:
- Paper sorting
- Coffee Capsules
- Computer equipment...
In 2018 we collected 862kg of recyclable flux at Sofrecom France.
Gradually replace purchase of recyclable supplies
As a company committed to sustainable development, Sofrecom takes care to choose its partners and supplies.
For business purposes we use recyclable paper for printing and generalize a "green" supply catalogue.
For example: Our Sofrecom pens are made from plastic bottles.
Participating in environmental actions
Sensitizing employees to the preservation of the environment is part of Sofrecom’s CSR policy. Throughout the year we organize events and actions for the environment:
- Eco-gesture training
- Beach cleaning in Tunisia
- Animations for the World Day of Sustainable Development...
Progressively equip our sites with video conference
Our offices in Morocco, France, in the Middle East and Tunisia are equipped with video conference and conference calls.
The purpose of these facilities is to limit travel (air travel) in order to reduce the carbon footprint of Sofrecom while improving the working conditions of our employees.
To promote its commitment to CSR, Sofrecom engages its employees in events and training on environmental issues throughout the year.

Diversity & Inclusion
Convinced that a wealth of skills, profiles and cultural diversity contributes to making our Group a more attractive, more innovative, more competitive company that is closer to its customers, we have been committed for many years to promoting diversity, inclusion and equality.
At Sofrecom, our diversity and inclusion policy reflects the company's desire to attract and develop talent from all backgrounds, with different experiences and viewpoints. This policy, entitled “Diversity is a reality, inclusion is a choice” is broken down into 4 key areas:
Sofrecom is a partner of several associations that offer young people guidance and that help people who have greater difficulty accessing employment, such as young people from disadvantaged backgrounds or people with disabilities, to find and settle into work.
Sofrecom is also a partner of several universities and facilitates access to employment for young people through multiple internship offers and work-study roles.
In choosing its partners and suppliers, Sofrecom strives to work with companies that respect the values and principles of equality, inclusion and ethics that our company promotes.
Improving gender equality
We ensure equal pay for employees for both recruitment and training.
Through our projects, we contribute to the social development of the countries in which we operate by facilitating women’s access to technical jobs. For example, 31% of workers hired to deploy the Backbone project in Sub-Saharan Africa are women, and 47% of our engineers in North Africa are women.
Guaranteeing the best work-life balance
As our profession is demanding, we ensure that we offer a pleasant and friendly working environment to our employees by regularly organising activities designed to strengthen team spirit.
Improving day-to-day quality of life and organisation at work are at the heart of the Sofrecom Group's social policy: provision of comfortable workspaces, simplification of IT tools, work-life balance, etc.
Promoting the recruitment of people with disabilities
Our recruitment process focuses on skills and guarantees equal opportunities regardless of gender, disability, religion, ethnic origin or age.
Sofrecom is implementing employee awareness initiatives on disability issues and is developing its processes to promote the employment of people with disabilities. Promoting the recruitment of people with disabilities within the Sofrecom group is a real area of progress.
We are certified by the Diversity Label :

Ethics & Compliance
Keen to respect ethical rules and its environment, and to step up the fight against corruption, Sofrecom has made ethics a priority. In 2010, it became Orange's first entity to obtain the Ethical certification, issued by the independent body Ethic Intelligence, which attests to the compliance of all Sofrecom’s practices and activities with international ethical standards. Since 2018, we are also certified ISO 37001 "Anti-corruption management systems".
The ethics and the respect by all of the values and the principles of collective action and of individual behaviors are translated in a reference common to all the collaborators whatever their trades.
This reference framework defines and specifies the daily conduct between us, our customers, our competitors and more broadly, our environment.
This double approach to compliance, on the one hand, and compliance with laws and rules, and ethics, on the other hand, that is to say, Orange's commitments that go beyond legal norms alone , marks our desire to act as an actor of Responsible and trust.
In case violations, fraud, corruption, conflict of interest or influence peddling are observed, the group’s Ethics alert system may be triggered by sending an email to email@example.com
Our certifications and our Ethics and Anti-corruption policy underpin our commitment.
