Our ESG commitments

ESG policy is a huge part of the DNA of Elicit plant. More than a communication plan, it is an opportunity to formalize concrete actions.

Through ESG, companies consider environmental, social and ethical issues in their activities on a voluntary basis, going beyond regulatory requirements. It is a genuine lever for creating value based on a fully human dynamic.
