Our social commitments

Since its origins in 1962, Edenred's mission has been to make the world of work a better world for all. This commitment has allowed the Group to identify the central elements of its corporate social responsibility policy: to improve the lives of individuals, to preserve the planet, and create value responsibly.

People: improve quality of life
Edenred aims to be an employer of choice in terms of professional development, human rights and diversity, to promote well-being through healthy and sustainable eating and to contribute to local development.

Planet: preserve the environment
Edenred seeks to preserve the environment by reducing its carbon footprint, its consumption of resources and its waste, by designing eco services for mobility and against food waste while managing the impact of its solutions.

Progress: create value responsibly 
Edenred is committed to developing its activities and partnerships in an ethical manner across its entire value chain. The Group guarantees IT security and data protection, while meeting the expectations of its clients and users and involving them in its shift-to-digital.


This policy is rolled out at an international level, notably with events such as Idealday or the Edenraid sports challenge. 

The Group's corporate social responsibility policy was built through a global materiality study involving both internal and external interviews. This study made it possible to identify and prioritize Edenred's issues according to their relevance and their impact on the company's performance. 

Seven major issues were identified:

  • IT security and data privacy
  • business ethics
  • energy and climate change
  • responsible payment digitalization
  • client satisfaction
  • talent management
  • sustainable and healthy food promotion



The materiality assessment enabled the development of a new sustainable development policy aligned with Edenred’s values underpinning the Group’s culture:

  • Passion for customers
  • Respect
  • Imagination
  • Simplicity
  • Entrepreneurial spirit

In recognition of its commitment, Edenred is included in the well-known ethical stock market index FTSE4Good.

In March 2022, Standard & Poor's Global Ratings assigned Edenred an ESG (environmental, social and governance) rating of 79/100. This score, which is 11 points above the global average, is based on a thorough and rigorous assessment of the company's management of long-term ESG risks.

In February 2022, the Group was also named an “Industry Mover” in S&P Global's 2022 Sustainability Yearbook, which places the Group among the top 15%of its industry in terms of ESG.

As a signatory of the United Nations Global Compact initiative, Edenred contributes with its solutions to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) set by the United Nations for 2030. With its social commitments, Edenred works towards 12 of these global goals, through the three axes of its CSR policy.
