Our corporate responsibility

Our work focuses on various ethical, social and environmental projects. Discover the Group Sustainable Development Policy.
Our commitments to society, employees and customers:
Developing a long-term social policy:
IN Groupe strives to develop employment opportunties, knowledge and skills. The implementation of an internal recruitment and mobility policy, combined with different training programmes, help to strengthen expertise and ensure that skills are constantly upgraded. The Group is also committed to ensuring the greatest possible equality of treatment between employees.
Since 2015, the Group has been committed to a policy of professional equality. It guarantees equal treatment in terms of recruitment, remuneration, career development and training (by selecting recruitment agencies that share the company's values, increasing the total female recruitment ratio by 3% per year, etc.). IN Groupe also promotes measures supporting parenthood, in particular by making CESU (Universal Service Employment) vouchers available for childcare.
Including the environment in different processes:
IN Groupe practices the recovery of waste, develops renewable energy and favours eco-responsible partners. The Group has implemented numerous measures to limit the environmental impact of production processes and production residue. The printing of documents requires the use of different types of products that need to be disposed of responsibly. With this in mind, a discharge agreement with the Douai municipal wastewater treatment plant was established in order to dispose of this waste.
Appropriate procedures and equipment are systematically used to limit the risk of solvents spilling onto the ground. And finally, the disposal of waste generated from the Group's activities is carried out in compliance with relevant regulations, by means of on-site recovery and waste sorting by approved service providers. IN Groupe is investing in new technologies that are more energy efficient and that use fewer raw materials. The company’s purchasing policy enables it to improve its environmental footprint by favouring partnerships with eco-responsible service providers and suppliers.
Improving the Group’s social impact:
IN Groupe would like its activities to leave a positive socio-economic footprint. In order to energise those regions where it is present, as well as support the creation of jobs, the Group favours the recruitment and training of apprentices or interns.
In addition to offering employment, the Group also wants to develop a sustainable ecosystem. Its responsible purchasing policy ensures that ethical assessments are conducted on all parties involved in particular agreements before any commitment is made.
IN Groupe and its Atelier du Livre d’art et de l’Estampe
The Atelier du Livre d’art et de l’Estampe workshop constitutes a living, tangible heritage that IN Groupe has maintained in operation through its own funding. Founded in 1640, the workshop is rooted in the history of typography. It holds a collection of 700,000 engraved items, including 500,000 Latin and Oriental punches – which have been classified as historical monuments – and a specialised library holding 35,000 volumes dating from the 16th century to the present day. Considered to be the world’s oldest printing shop still in operation, it embodies the savoir-faire of IN Groupe, a modern company with its sights resolutely set towards the future and new technologies, and that is constantly reinventing itself amid the creative confrontation between tradition and modernity.
