To ensure maximum coherence and top-level coordination, Nexans set up a dedicated CSR governance structure.
To steer its CSR ambitions, the Group has set up a dedicated governance structure overseen by the CSR Department, which reports to the Group’s Senior Corporate Vice President Human Resources, in charge of Communications and CSR, and member of the Executive Committee. The Group’s highest decision-making bodies, and operating and support departments are closely involved in CSR governance. This is reflected in the commitment to integrate CSR into its strategy through various committees.
Primarily, the CSR Committee chaired by Christopher Guérin, Chief Executive Officer, is made up of members of the Executive Committee. This committee meets at least once a year to define CSR policy and assess the various initiatives.
The CSR Committee works with two expert committees that meet to translate the CSR ambitions and other CSR issues into operations:
- CSR Governance and Social co-chaired by David Dragone (Senior Corporate Vice President & Chief Human Resources Officer, and member of the Executive Committee) and Nino Cusimano (Senior Corporate Vice President & General Counsel and Secretary General and member of the Executive Committee) : Governance, Ethics & Business Conduct, CSR Risks, Labor relations, Human Capital, Human Rights, Internal opinion surveys, Diversity and Inclustion, CSR reporting, Stakeholders relations, CSR communication, Nexans Foundation.
- CSR Environment and Products co-chaired by Jérôme Fournier (Corporate Vice President Innovation, Services & Growth and member of the Executive Commitee) and Elyette Roux (Corporate Vice President & Chief Sales & Marketing Communications Officer): Workplace safety, Environmental Management and on-site audits, Recycling and Waste, Soil testing, Energy efficiency, Responsible Purchasing, Innovation and new products development, Life cycle assessment and eco-declarations, Eco-design products, Regulations on chemicals, Biodiversity, Water management.
The involvement of the highest governance bodies and the organization’s operating departments and support functions in developing CSR policy attests to the strong commitment to incorporate CSR issues into Group strategy.
In December 2021, Olivier Chevreau (Vice President Sustainability) was appointed to redefine the governance and coordinate all the Group's E3 actions. In this capacity, he will encompassing the two expert committees "Governance and Social" and "Environment and and "Environment and Products".
