At ETF, all our employees identify with the attitudes of humility, team spirit, excellence, entrepreneurial freedom and transparency. These shared attitudes guide us in everything we do.
They underpin our ambition, as the benchmark partner for rail mobility: to work for a sustainable world.
At ETF, we believe that there can be no economic success without a human project. This is rooted in our culture. We are convinced that our environmental, social and societal performance will serve the users of our facilities. This is the meaning of the universal commitments set out in the “VINCI Manifesto”, to which we subscribe on a daily basis.
Our CSR policy summarises our principles for responsible action, with the aim of achieving overall performance. It is the fruit of joint development with all our stakeholders. See also our Responsible Purchasing Charter.
SAFETY FOR ALL
At ETF, health and safety are our top priority, every day, on all our sites and worksites.
To achieve our goal of “zero serious accidents”, we act with transparency, example and dialogue. These are the foundations of our shared health and safety culture.
In order to achieve this, it is essential to comply with the rules, particularly those that respond to an identified major risk. Find out more about our 7 Golden Rules that address our main major risks. Through these commitments, ETF employees are helping to ensure that complex, high-performance projects are carried out under optimum safety conditions.
FOR THE RESPECT OF THE ENVIRONMENT
Rail transport is considered to be one of the most energy-efficient and environmentally friendly modes of land transport. We are developing an operational culture that includes environmental protection in our decision-making.
At ETF, we are taking action for the climate, optimising resources through the circular economy and preserving natural environments. Find out more about our Environmental Commitments.
Through the solutions we develop, we invest in our equipment and reinvent our working methods to limit our own environmental footprint.
Whether it’s for the planet, our customers or the beneficiaries of our works, we are committed to doing everything we can to be an environmentally friendly actor.
FOR EMPLOYMENT AND EDUCATION
We promote the impact of our activities on the local economy by recruiting people on integration contracts, permanent worksite contracts and sometimes temporary work.
We transform recruitment into sustainable employment and ensure the employability of all our employees, in particular by developing their skills through our internal training centre, ETF Academy. We are also committed to promoting the professional mobility of all our employees, both within ETF and within the VINCI Group.
FOR THE RESPECT OF ETHICS
In keeping with the attitudes that guide us in everything we do, all our employees must be vigilant about the proper application of the code of ethics and behaviour with regard to themselves, their entourage and the people for whom they are responsible.
High standards of business ethics apply to all our employees, in their dealings with customers, partners and suppliers. Over and above simple compliance with laws and regulations, we conduct our activities and take our decisions with the utmost integrity.
FOR RAIL MOBILITY
The rail market is driven by a strong need for sustainable mobility and the need to decarbonise transport solutions. The rail network and its development are the foundation of tomorrow’s public transport. Whether in the heart of cities or on the national rail network, it is one of the answers to today’s social and economic challenges.
We are opening and strengthening paths of dialogue with all our stakeholders to accelerate the development of rail infrastructure.
