CSR is at the forefront of everything that we do. As a leading WiFi and Internet Service Provider, we take great care in sourcing and implementing technology responsibly to strengthen our environmental and societal principles, enhancing the sustainability of all work conducted by Wifirst.
Supported by our management team and employees, we believe CSR and Sustainability Development to be an area of innovation, creativity and pride that we share with our clients, suppliers and partners each and every day.
Favouring concrete actions that have evolved through employee engagement, our approach is defined by its progressiveness while also being aligned with pioneers in the field:
Wifirst has modelled its approach to Sustainability on the Sustainable Development Goals outlined by the United Nations to address the global challenges we face, including poverty, inequality, climate change, environmental degradation, peace and justice.
Furthering our commitment to CSR ethics, Wifirst is a member of Tech For Good France, THE network for entrepreneurs & investors who are dedicated to developing and financing technology and digital solutions to accelerate the transformation to a wholly more sustainable and responsible society.
In an ongoing drive for continuous improvement of our ecological and social footprint, in 2020 Wifirst was evaluated by the worlds most trusted business sustainability assessor, Ecovadis, and was subsequently presented with a silver award, a significantly higher decoration than the industry average for the telecom sector. This rating is the result of assessing a number of indicators collated into five key segments: Environmental, Social and Ethical Performance, Human Rights and Responsible Procurement.
It is our duty to care about the quality of our services, our supply chain and procurement sustainability and human rights to support the working conditions of our employees and partners.
As an integral part of our Corporate Social Responsibility, Wifirst's commitment to its employees is reflected in our policies, recruitment, management, training and internal development. Wifirst also ensures the well-being of employees through a healthy working environment.

We have created a healthy ecosystem of trusted suppliers, partners and technicians whom we have worked with for several years, and have complete confidence, with assurances verifying compliance to our commitments through dedicated contract clauses.
