For the European Week for Waste Reduction, the SPB Group, European leader in affinity insurance and services, is unveiling its corporate social responsibility (CSR) strategy, “SPB commits”. The strategy comprises six priority focuses based on the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals and expectations expressed by the Group's employees.

The SPB Group has placed the circular economy at the heart of its business model since 2010 by providing its customers with collection, repair, dismantling and recycling services, as well as second-life services for damaged products, as part of its insurance programmes. The SPB Group today is firmly convinced of the urgency of engaging its responsibility regarding the impact of its actions and decisions on society and the environment, the aim being to adopt an increasingly virtuous business model and to continue making a positive and constructive impact on people and the planet.

SPB is thus formalising its determination to become a committed company that contributes to society and the environment. To that end, working groups composed of volunteer Group employees were formed to draw up concrete actions to be taken based on six of the UN Sustainable Development Goals:

  • responsible consumption and production,
  • peace, justice and strong institutions,
  • decent work and economic growth,
  • good health and well-being,
  • sustainable cities and communities,
  • life on land.

SPB Group's Chairman of the Management Board, Jean-Marie Guian said: “For several years now, the SPB Group has integrated a circular economy policy into its business model to reduce the environmental impact of its business activities and those of its partners. Today, we are committing to a global CSR policy for the Group, aimed at further boosting our positive impact on society and the environment. I am proud of the commitment of our employees and the members of the Group’s Executive Committee to our new CSR strategy, ‘SPB Commits’”.
