For more than 20 years, Thales has pursued a robust corporate social responsibility (CSR) policy based on the highest international standards. The principles behind this policy are now captured in the company’s purpose of “building a future we can all trust”, which was adopted in 2020.
Through this approach, the Group is striving to meet the expectations of customers, employees, investors and the financial markets in terms of its business performance, its potential for innovation and awareness of its responsibilities, and to respond to current demand for greater trust and transparency in stakeholder relations.
