CSR Leadership

Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is managed at the highest level within Technicolor.

CSR is formally represented at the Executive Committee level by the Executive Vice President for Human Resources and Sustainability, Fabienne Brunet, reporting directly to the CEO. New company CSR initiatives are therefore evaluated and authorized by Executive Committee members, progress is reviewed and supervision provided in all related domains.

Reporting to the Executive Vice President for Human Resources and Sustainability, a Corporate Social Responsibility Department, headed by Didier Huck, Vice President for Public Affairs & Corporate Social Responsibility, has been in existence since 2007. The CSR Department holds broad authority to propose and coordinate CSR policy implementation and operational deployment. The department benefits from strong senior management support as well as assistance from Technicolor’s Human Resources, Sourcing, Environment, and Health & Safety networks.

More details on Technicolor’s overall governance structures can be found in the Corporate and Internal Control pages in the Technicolor Annual Report.

Didier Huck, VP, Corporate Social Responsibility and Public Affairs

“Now more than ever, corporate social responsibility is a business imperative. The more successful companies are those that integrate societal, environmental and economic reflections in how they do business thus reinforcing the links to all their stakeholders. At Technicolor we know it is in everyone's interest to contribute to the sustainability of the communities we serve and in which we operate”

 

Comprehensive Ethical Business Practices at the Heart of Our CSR Policies

The success of our business and CSR strategies is inextricably linked to how we are perceived by all our stakeholders and our ability to demonstrate the highest ethical standards in our business practices.

To this end, the Technicolor Code of Ethics constitutes the foundation for the company’s core practices.

The Ethics Compliance Committee (ECC) is responsible for all ethical issues related to the Group’s activities. The Code of Ethics, which is distributed to all Technicolor employees, has four basic principles:

  • Respect for People
  • Respect for the Environment
  • Valuing Integrity
  • Valuing Creativity.

Ethics Programs and Initiatives

As part of its effort to ensure that employees are familiar with the Code of Ethics and related policies, such as the Whistleblower Policy, the ECC has implemented numerous training programs, including both in-person and online courses. For the period of 2010-2014, training sessions were completed for 9,915 employees covering topics such as the Code of Ethics itself, Global Financial Fraud Prevention, EU Competition-Dealing with Competitors, the UK Bribery Act and sexual harassment.

Whistleblower Policy

Launched in May 2006, the revised Technicolor Whistleblower Policy is designed to make it easier for employees to share questions, concerns, suggestions or complaints about financial, accounting, banking or anti-bribery matters with an appropriate person.

Like the Code of Ethics, the Whistleblower Policy is widely communicated to all Technicolor employees and made available on the company’s intranet.
