in business volume
A fast-growing international company

In 2019, the Group's operational revenue was split in the following manner.
Connecting a fast-changing world
Shifts in global economic power / Helping the move to a more formalized economy
Formalizing the economy continues to be a key challenge in many countries. Millions of vulnerable employees are still excluded from the digital financial services and social safety nets already in place. For governments, the informal economy represents a source of job insecurity for a portion of the population and a significant loss of income in several areas.
Digitalization / Supporting changes in the way people live and interact
From big data and geolocation to the Internet of Things, technology is constantly evolving, leading to growing demand from users for more personalized solutions adapted specifically to their needs. This digital disruption is radically changing the way we consume, work and interact, enhancing our daily lives and transforming the global economy with innovative new services in the process.
Urbanization / Promoting balanced lives in sustainable cities
Cities are growing and society is changing rapidly. Urbanization is driving a global transformation in our relation to distance, time, work and other people. Bigger cities also mean more mobility needs and new ways of getting around – key challenges that require a thorough review of existing transportation systems. This, along with many other social and environmental considerations, is forcing us to rethink cities as places of opportunity, well-being, culture and sharing.
Environmental and health protection / Encouraging healthy eating habits to drive responsible development
Global awareness of the climate emergency has led society to question the industrialization of farming and food production. Urban consumers are ready for change. During their lunch breaks, they now seek out local, organic foods deemed better for their health and for the environment. And they’re adapting their eating habits as part of efforts to prevent food waste and the destruction of natural resources.
The challenging context we’re facing in 2020 shows, more than ever, how committed our teams are to taking care of everyone, including those who are most vulnerable.
