Stéarinerie Dubois has been named the winner in the “First Communication on Progress” category. The jury was impressed with the company’s strategic thinking concerning the supply chain, the instructional quality and transparency of the COP, as well as the workplace standards aspect (in particular in regard to health and working conditions). Stéarinerie Dubois has been a member of the Global Compact since 2017. Our Communication on Progress is an extension of our Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) strategy based on four fundamental points: ensuring profitable and sustainable growth, relying on the men and women who make up the company, while integrating our activities in our ecosystem, with the aim of cultivating a responsible value chain.

“This award comes in recognition of a forthright structuring approach that has been in place for several years. It also bears witness to our corporate mission as a core element of civil society and a supply chain. The company will celebrate its 200th anniversary in 2020, and this honor augurs well as we enter our bicentennial year. It will be an occasion for even bigger changes, with all of us mobilized toward the sustainable development goals, in keeping with our corporate vision: to make our products in harmony with the environment and with humankind.”
