8. Decent work and economic growth

By our commitment to the Charter ‘Decent Work for All, we recognize the unique skills and talent every person can offer, regardless their gender, age, sexual orientation, cultural or social background, disability, or personal situation. We acknowledge that all actors from different sectors –private, social, public -need to join forces to integrate unemployed people in the labour market and address the obstacles to professional integration. We want to build well-connected ecosystems in which we collaborate to increase social impact. We express our commitment towards Decent work for all, including inclusive recruiting, and we will act in accordance of the charter. This means to us, as an actor of private sector, striving actively to create decent and sustainable jobs in an inclusive work environment, to reflect the diversity of our society in the workforce and to embed “Decent work for all” in the company culture. As one with all actors, we will define and communicate a target and action plan for inclusive recruiting to reflect the diversity of society in the workforce. We will leverage the organization’s resources to have an impact on decent work for all (internships, expertise, volunteering, lobbying, funding). We will contact other organizations to create or join the ecosystem to reach the target for inclusive workforce (recruiting and retention). We will share best practices with other organizations to inforce the ecosystem for decent work. We will report on results and lessons learned to decision makers in the companies and our country.

17. Partnerships for the goals

Depuis 2009, Solvay a entamé un partenariat avec La Ferme Nos Pilifs pour l’entretien de ses espaces verts. Les services de La Ferme Nos Pilifs ont pour objectif de diversifier les espaces verts afin de favoriser la biodiversité. Ce partenariat permet donc d’associer des objectifs environnementaux dans une démarche d’intégration sociale et économique, par exemple en engageant des personnes ayant un handicap ou en vendant des paniers bios sur leur site.
