Our corporate social responsibility (CSR) aims to improve the environmental, social, economic and ethical impact of our business and we take our mission seriously.
Placing our CSR commitments at the heart of our strategy means taking concrete actions to promote safety, quality and environmental protection on a daily basis. To this end, our teams are mobilized to meet the main challenges we have identified: commitment to the climate, naturalness, responsible sourcing, sustainable mobility, etc.
We are always looking for the best solutions. And we are more motivated than ever to make excellence our only reference.

Promote the use of responsible ingredients
Unipex has developed 3 exclusive CSR measurement tools to better support our partners and bring them our Sustainable Development expertise on a daily basis.
We have targeted 3 priority CSR issues: People, Planet & Ingredients.
We evaluate our own CSR actions but also those of our suppliers.
CSR audits of our supply chain (suppliers and producers) include compliance with environmental and social standards (employee health and safety).
On request, CSR audits can be carried out by a Unipex CSR auditor.
Our Ingredient Diagnostic is an exclusive rating tool which aims to provide an assessment of our ingredients by integrating the environmental and social criteria of our raw materials.
We evaluate the CSR performance of our raw materials according to well-defined criteria: origins, naturalness, CSR certifications and labels, possible substitutions, efficiency and transparency.
With the Ingredients Diagnostic, we support our suppliers by encouraging them to adopt more responsible production.
The Carbon LCA is the Carbon Life Cycle Analysis of the materials we distribute. This tool, which is currently being tested, allows us to measure the CO2 emissions of an ingredient throughout its life cycle by following the Cradle to Market method (from origin to production to distribution).
It facilitates the identification of points of improvement in order to reduce the CO2 emissions of our distributor activity.
