Coded in CNR’s genes, sustainable development and resocietal responsibility are embedded in every level and in every decision taken by the company, making them a genuine asset for its development.
Intrinsic components of its corporate model, unique in France, CNR’s social, economic and environmental concerns forged its development long before the concepts of sustainable development and Corporate Social Responsibility emerged. Due to its legal status, the concession it holds on the Rhone and the missions assigned to it, CNR’s policy has never been determined solely by financial. On the contrary, sustainable development and societal responsibility are ingrained in the actions performed by CNR. They are based on four essential points:
- The efficient and well-managed production of 100% renewable electricity combined with the ambition to innovate in order to meet the challenges of tomorrow’s energies;
- The preservation of the environment with the development of river transport, sustainable agriculture and the hydraulic and ecological restoration of the river;
- The fair redistribution of part of the wealth created for the benefit of the territories bordering the river by virtue of its missions in the public interest, on the one hand, and to the State, its shareholders and its employees on the other.
- Recognition of the essential role played by the women and men who work for CNR and that of the constructive dialogue established with the social partners.
