Since its creation in 1968, GROUPE ATLANTIC has contributed to the fundamental health and hygiene needs of its customers in the housing and tertiary markets through increasingly eco-efficient solutions. Beginning in 2014, an internal organisation governing its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) was set up. Its purpose is to structure the Group’s Sustainable Development process, explore areas for improvement and work with the departments to devise cross-functional projects.
