The “adapted company” lowered its carbon footprintLeveraging its expertise, APF Entreprise 34 generates annual revenue of 3.1 M€ with a staff of 70 people. Its leadership role in terms of corporate social responsibility (CSR) is another major factor for its success.
The results are convincing: the adapted company benefits from a low level of absenteeism (5.6% in 2019), and also reduced its carbon footprint with a high energy performance building, strict selection of suppliers (in particular for transportation), and developing transportation methods as alternatives to cars for its employees.
“We adopted a pioneering approach about a dozen years ago to limit our ecological impact and improve working conditions for our employees,” highlights Christophe Rey, director of APF Entreprises 34.
