Thales Integrated Report on Corporate Responsibility 2021



The past year has been singular in many respects. The global Covid-19 pandemic, with its drastic human and economic consequences has accelerated a general awareness of the need to work together to build a more sustainable world.
Through its positioning and strategy, Thales provides a tangible response to these expectations: developing solutions to build a safer, more sustainable and more inclusive world, while striving for responsible economic performance in deference to its stakeholders, all necessary conditions for establishing trust.
It is this economic, social, societal and environmental contribution of Thales in 2020 that I wanted to present to you through this integrated report.
