This policy is supported by all teams in 45 countries. It is embodied through an annual action plan and several team events: the Idealday solidarity day and the Edenraid connected sports challenge.
In 2022, as part of preparations for the Beyond plan, Edenred updated its 2017 materiality matrix through a “double materiality” assessment, which measures both financial and impact materiality.
The exercise confirmed the focuses of the People, Planet and Progress pillars and highlighted the following 16 priority issues in 5 categories:
- Governance: IT security, personal data, and business ethics;
- Employees: talent management, promotion of diversity, and skills development;
- Environment: the fight against climate change, supply chain decarbonization, development of eco-designed solutions, promotion of sustainable mobility, and healthy and sustainable food;
- Clients: customer satisfaction, innovation, accessibility;
- Societal impact: socio-economic impact of solutions, socio-economic impact on regions and communities.
