A big promise not yet kept:
The topics of non-discrimination towards women and the promotion of gender equality have been at the heart of corporate responsibility agendas for many years. Nonetheless, the macro-trend of Vigeo’s assessment shows that both global and regional performances appear only limited. European Companies display better overall performances compared to North American, South-East Asian and companies from emerging markets. The average score on a regional basis does not exceed 50/100. These regional scores only represent the basic expectations for formalizing commitments and setting up plans related to risk prevention against discrimination in recruitments, in compensation and womens’ access to managerial positions.
Vigeo publishes the following information:
- A synopsis of company behavior in 4 countries representative of European best practices.
- The Vigeo Sustainability Focus on discrimination and diversity.
- VIgeo’s selected company reports on: : Akzo Nobel, Banco Espirito Santo, BNP Paribas, Delhaize, Energias de Portugal, GDF Suez, Koninklijke DSM, L’Oréal, Redes Energetical, STMicroelectronics, Umicore
