We are committed

Aware that the environmental and social challenges we face are huge, we have chosen to enlist the support of BPI France‘s experts to help us meet them. Find out how our CSR approach permeates every process in our organisation.

UN objectives

The basis of our approach

The first step of our CSR approach was to identify the Sustainable Development Goals set by the UN, on which ADESIA has a significant impact and can make a specific contribution.
Here they are:

  • Good health and well-being

  • Affordable and clean energy

  • Decent work and economic growth

  • Sustainable cities and communities

  • Responsible consumption and production

  • Climate action

  • Life on land

We then identified 65 items that make up our action plan. These items are related to governance, employees, our purchasing policy, our customers, local communities and the environment and climate.

Climate and low-carbon strategy

One of the actions in our CSR roadmap is to reduce our Greenhouse Gas Emissions. To implement our strategy, we have proceeded step by step, starting with assessing our emissions.
Because transparency is a strong value at ADESIA, we choose to share with you our Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Inventory for Scope 1 and 2.

In simple terms, we have calculated the emissions of greenhouse gases we produce in a given year directly (corresponding to Scope 1, which includes, for example, the energy used by our machines to manufacture adhesive tapes) and indirectly (Scope 2, for example, energy for heating the site). The result is given in tons of CO2.

In 2023, our emissions for Scope 1 and 2 were 1008 tons of CO2, which is 78,8g of CO2 per m² of adhesive.

98% of these emissions are inherent to our manufacturing process, particularly the consumption of natural gas to operate the ovens used to dry the adhesive.

To reduce our greenhouse gas emissions, our methods engineers have begun a study of the coating processes for each product range. The aim is to limit as much as possible the curing time and/or the temperature in the oven without compromising the quality and functionality of our adhesive tapes.

This short, medium and long-term work should enable us to limit the impact of our business while ensuring its growth. See you in a year’s time for a first assessment!

Inclusion and gender equality

ADESIA  is comitted in inclusion and gender equality. As proof, our professional equality index in 2022 is 94/100. In comparison, the national average is 85/100. This index, which is scored out of 100 points, is measured using 5 indicators and helps to advance equal pay within companies by objectively measuring the pay gap between men and women, while highlighting areas for progress.

Local roots and support for community initiatives

Comitted to its region, ADESIA regularly supports sports, artistic, cultural associations and local events.

ADESIA is a partner of the ARTFAREINS biennial contemporary sculpture exhibition, which showcases around thirty artists every 2 years, presenting their work at various sites in the Beaujolais region.

We also support the association Art Brut en Compagnie, whose mission is to promote the Art Brut movement. In 2023, the “Jouets d’Art Brut” exhibition was held at the Albert Camus school in Villefranche-sur-Saône, with the aim of introducing youngsters to the works of this movement.

Also in the field of artistic creation, ADESIA recently joined SUBLIME, the partner group of Les SUBS https://www.les-subs.com/, a lively venue for artistic experiments in Lyon.

Since 2022, ADESIA teams have been taking part in the Mobility Challenge in the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region. The purpose of this initiative is to promote the use of alternative transport modes (walking, cycling, public transport, car-pooling) among the working population.
