Societe Generale signs the Sustainable IT Charter

On the occasion of its #TechWeekSG event, Societe Generale announces the signature of the Sustainable IT Charter, under which the Group is reasserting its commitment to contribute to the positive transformation of societies and economies.

In signing the Sustainable IT Charter, Societe Generale, a founding member of the Institut du Numérique Responsable (Sustainable IT Institute) since December 2018, is committing to:

- optimise digital tools to limit their impacts on the environment and their consumption,

- develop accessible, inclusive and sustainable service offerings,

- disseminate best ethical and responsible digital practices,

- help make digital technologies measurable, transparent and readable, and

- foster the emergence of new behaviours and values.

Drawn up by the Institut du Numérique Responsable in partnership with Commissariat général au développement durable (CGDD) of the Ministry of Ecological and Solidarity Transition, WWF, ADEME and Fing (a recognised digital transformation think tank), this charter was launched in June 2019 and has 28 signatories to date (companies, associations, VSEs/SMEs and public sector players).

“ Societe Generale's corporate and social responsibility relates not only to our choices of financing and investment but also to the way in which we carry out our activities. We are proud to sign the Sustainable IT Charter which underscores our commitment to the fight against global warming and to helping foster social inclusion,” says Sylvie Préa, Societe Generale Group Director of Corporate Social Responsibility.

“With the scaling-up of our digital transformation scales up, our IT function, which is already engaged in responsible projects, is making a further commitment by signing the Sustainable IT Charter to limiting the environmental impact of technology and encouraging digital inclusion,” says Christophe Leblanc, Societe Generale Group Head of Corporate Resources and Digital Transformation.
