Societe Generale Equipment Finance launched its 2025 CSR strategy 

Managing uncertain economic conditions for companies also requires the ability to rethink and adapt existing strategies to meet future demands and long-term objectives. For Societe Generale Equipment Finance (SGEF), Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is an important strategic dimension to shape the future organizational and commercial focus.

For the past 18 months, the world has been facing a challenging environment with new rules and regulations impacting on both society and economy. There has been a clear shift in the need for SGEF to rethink its existing way of working but also its approach towards sustainability and care for the environment from both an individual and business perspective. Therefore, the Equipment Finance subsidiary decided to build a five-year strategic CSR roadmap called “Care & Dare about the Future” around its clients and core business activities to achieve the maximum degree of integration in its organization.

With 4 dimensions in its CSR ambition, SGEF focuses on the future market trends and requirements:

  • to be partner of choice for new and sustainable business in the B2B segment;
  • to shift and grow its existing finance portfolio to sustainable assets and finance solutions together with its clients and partners;
  • to further strengthen its asset-life-cycle management capabilities to optimize the use of resources by involving its partners in the process;
  • and to create a company culture for sustainable internal and external working practices. 

In addition to a clear objective setting and strategy, the involvement of SGEF’s team members across the entire organization will be a key success factor.

Societe Generale Equipment Finance’s CSR ambition is seen as key driver to become a market leader for CSR in Equipment Finance. As a leading equipment finance solution provider, SGEF is able not just to support the transition towards more sustainability and care for the environment, it has the responsibility to pro-actively shape the future with its finance solutions together with its clients and partners through its new strategy “Care & Dare about the Future".
