ODIAL SOLUTIONS Group announces its purpose statement: “Africa, the source of our commitments to the planet!”
The Supervisory Board of ODIAL SOLUTIONS (SAHER, UDUMA, UDUMA MALI, VERGNET BURKINA and VERGNET HYDRO) has officially approved the group’s purpose statement. This statement, written jointly with the various stakeholders, “defines the essence of ODIAL SOLUTIONS Group, its values and its role in society, beyond its basic economic function,” Group CEO Thierry BARBOTTE explained.
Long-term orientation of the group’s strategy
Inspired by fifty years of experience and experiences, “Africa, the source of our commitments to the planet!” focuses the group’s long-term strategy on designing, building and implementing sustainable drinking water and energy solutions for rural populations in sub-Saharan Africa. Here is the full text:
“Africa, the source of our commitments to the planet! We will draw on our fifty years’ experience in supplying water and energy as we continue to work with the populations in rural and isolated areas to tackle the major challenges they face. We aim to bring everyone a future where well-being and conservation of resources can coexist. Respect, adapt, innovate.”
Sustainable consideration of social and environmental issues
This purpose statement is an invitation to all the Group’s stakeholders – employees, customers, suppliers, shareholders, partners and local areas – to take the sentiment to heart and make it happen.
By announcing its purpose statement, the group has publicly committed to making social and environmental issues a central and constant consideration when setting its strategy. This undertaking and the group’s transparency are perfectly in step with the French government’s recommendations, as set out in the PACTE Law (22 May 2019).
