Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) Training

Since 2016, following the decision of the European Works Council to tackle the issue of deploying sustainability and CSR principles, Valeo put in place a robust CSR training program in each country where we operate. Managers and labor representatives gathered together during this training to discuss and exchange opinions on promoting sustainability at each site.

A key element of its culture, Valeo works for diversity on four themes: gender equality, cohesion between generations, cultural diversity and the inclusion of people with disabilities.
