« Convinced that we all have a role to play in preparing a sustainable future for future generations, I have embarked on innovating in the field of hydrogen storage. With my diverse team of experts, engineers, and technicians from various fields, we have developed a unique French solution for storing hydrogen in solid form without constraints and without the need for energy to operate it. This technology is the future market solution for numerous stationary applications as well as for land and maritime mobility.

What is CSR ?
Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR), as defined by the European Commission, is the voluntary integration of social and environmental concerns into a company’s business activities and its relationships with stakeholders.
In other words, CSR refers to the contribution of companies to the challenges of sustainable development.
ESG criteria : comprehensive evaluation of the sustainability of companies
ESG criteria (Environmental, Social, and Governance) allow for the evaluation of a company’s CSR approach. Beyond the economic aspect, these criteria take into account the social and environmental impacts of its activities. They define how the company considers sustainable development in its business operations and development strategy.
Environmental criteria refer to the practices and policies of the company regarding the management of natural resources, reduction of greenhouse gas emissions, recycling, biodiversity conservation, and more. They also encompass the consideration of risks related to climate change and environmental disasters.
Social criteria pertain to the company’s practices regarding relationships with employees, suppliers, customers, and local communities. They encompass aspects such as human rights protection, fair working conditions, diversity and inclusion, health and safety, as well as social and philanthropic engagement.
Governance criteria assess the governance structure of a company, internal control mechanisms, transparency of financial information, and efforts to combat corruption. They also focus on how stakeholders’ interests are taken into account and the alignment of the company’s objectives with those of society as a whole.
