Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) Governance 

The ARMOR Group adapted its governance to better take into account social innovation considerations and the interest of stakeholders in its decisions.

The bi-monthly Sustainable Development committee defines strategy and ensures its effective implementation. It relies on a network of correspondents in the subsidiaries and Decαplan and Alternative Print Programme Project Leaders (operational action plans applicable to the 2 French sites of the 2 divisions AICP and AOP)

Our CSR principles

Given the impact of its activities, the Group is aware of its responsibilities and intends to act accordingly, by giving men and women from the company a key role to play, being respectful of the environment, and through technical and managerial innovation - yet while paying special attention to both customers and economic performance, as a guarantee of long-term viability.

All aspects of social responsibility are linked, and together they set the tone of human relations within the company, thus favouring the Group’s development. Year after year, ARMOR is constructing a more comprehensive social rights model for its employees, relying on the following principles:

- Improving working and living conditions for employees
- Using dialogue to build an attractive social rights package
- Developing a safe working environment
- Fighting discrimination and encouraging diversity
- Identify internal competences and moving them forward


Given the nature of its activities and products, ARMOR is careful to limit the effects of production and to design and promote more ecological product and service offers based on 4 axes:
- Reducing product impacts
- Ensure the environmental management of sites
- Fighting climate change
- Saving energy

Acting in line with our values does of course mean changing our everyday approach towards customers - but also towards the community (suppliers, the areas in which ARMOR sites are located, sectors of activity). With one goal in mind: to get involved and share our practices. ARMOR is thus commited to:

- Satisfying its customers by a strong level of product and service quality
- Applying a shared, concrete, and responsible purchasing policy
- Contributing to local development in the areas in which ARMOR is established
- Creating and distributing the economic value
- Exercising responsible influence
