In August 2015, Erys Group became the first French ESSD to join the International Code of Conduct Association (ICOCA). This leads us to conduct our operations in accordance with the most demanding international standards for private security companies. In 2016, Erys Group started the ISO 18788 certification process, which we expect to complete in 2017.
Erys Group fully supports the Voluntary Principles on Security and Human Rights, as applied by its clients in oil, gas and mining.
As part of this support, we are contributing to an assessment of the risks that security services represent for human rights in complex environments. We are talking constructively with public and private security forces and with local populations. We provide specific training on this subject and we report any violations of human rights or exacerbation of conflicts.
We are also a signatory of the United Nations Global Compact aimed at implementing universal sustainability principles and supporting UN goals relating to human rights, environmental protection and the fight against corruption, everywhere in the world.
See the DECLARATION OF HUMAN RIGHTS
Erys Group has developed an exclusive method of integrating security operations into the local environment through socio-economic activities, such as upholding fair trade, instilling environmental protection awareness, providing micro-credits, and including the local population in skills training and skills transfer.
These actions contributing to sustainable development through protecting and stimulating the local economy and help our security projects become better accepted. By providing roles for local people, we create favourable conditions for the successful completion of our clients’ objectives in a positive climate.
We have drawn up a comprehensive Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) policy in full accordance with international and European rules and standards and apply it actively wherever we operate. We believe that good CSR helps create value and improve conditions for all project stakeholders.
