The Group attaches great importance to its extra-financial ratings and strives to obtain ratings that best reflect its CSR actions by ensuring the quality and transparency of the data provided.

Every year, Societe Generale’s CSR achievements are subject to extra-financial reporting, verified by statutory auditors. The Group’s CSR approach is also evaluated by extra-financial ratings agencies. These ratings help the bank to benchmark its efforts compared to its peers.
