Our Commitment to Sustainable Development
We are committed to social and environmental initiatives with our employees to minimize the environmental impact and encourage sustainable growth with our suppliers, partners, and customers. As a software company, we're particularly focused on a sustainable IT program that helps reduce our carbon footprint and strengthens our commitment to social and community-based efforts.
Governance - A pragmatic approach
Priorities in our Corporate Social Responsibility
Established in 2022, the MEGA Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) committee includes representatives from every department and convenes monthly. Its primary function is to define the roadmap for sustainable actions based on best practices and key principles: Human and Labor rights, Ethics, and Environment.
To support the CSR Committee's efforts, we formed a team of dedicated employees passionate about CSR issues. This team takes the lead on specific projects and local initiatives to help spread the word about CSR actions in all the countries where MEGA is present worldwide.
SDG approach & stakeholders
Our CSR approach is based on the UN's Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), using them as a blueprint to shape our approach, engage with stakeholders, and carve out a progressive path. In 2023, we've identified the following priorities: Quality education (4), Gender equality (5), Decent work and economic growth, Innovation and infrastructure (9), Responsible production and consumption (12), and Climate action (13).
Social - Engagement and Quality of life at work
Make our social practices a catalyst for well-being and performance:
Promote diversity and gender equality
MEGA upholds an inclusive recruitment and career development policy, welcoming candidates regardless of age, disability, gender, ethnic origin, or sexual orientation. With women making up 31% of our workforce, we actively put gender equality at the center of our efforts.
Work-life balance and a comfortable working environment
79% of our employees benefit from teleworking, which is considered a real asset for the quality of life at work. MEGA's workplace fosters interaction and adaptability by offering flexible work arrangements, featuring collaborative, innovative, and welcoming spaces.
Citizen engagement program
MEGA employees are granted one day of solidarity leave per year. They can engage in various initiatives: raising awareness (environment, diversity, disability, education), participating in challenges, or organizing meaningful team-building activities.
Environment – Contributing to reduce our footprint
Reducing Environmental Impact: Integrating environmental criteria into our procedures
Carbon footprint assessment
Since 2020, MEGA has been evaluating its carbon footprint, covering scopes 1, 2, and 3 (824.09 tCO2e in 2022, focusing on French headquarters and operations). As part of our journey toward sustainability, we are developing a plan to reduce our impact, anchored in science-based targets.
Eco-friendly Practices and Moderation
MEGA actively promotes environmental stewardship by adopting eco-friendly practices, reducing energy consumption and waste, and choosing suppliers who meet eco-responsible standards (like recycled materials and responsible channels).
Raising awareness on Climate change
To help employees understand global warming and call to inspire actions, MEGA organizes "Climate Fresk" workshops focused on collaboration and supports reforestation projects to protect forests and fragile ecosystems.
Sustainable IT – Eco-Design and Green IT
As a software company supporting our customers in their digital transformation, we are deeply committed to a sustainable IT approach.
Eco-Design of MEGA products
From the design phase, the MEGA HOPEX solution aims to focus on core needs, avoiding unnecessary features. It minimizes disk space usage, CPU usage, data processing, and screen rendering. Eco-conception methods minimize the platform's power needs, and any unused features are removed.
Green IT approach
To reduce the environmental impact of our information system, we engage in several practices: leasing computer and office equipment (including recovery and recycling of equipment), prolonging equipment lifespan, reducing printing, and enhancing the efficiency of servers and applications.
Sustainable IT Label
In 2022, we began the process to earn the "Sustainable IT Label" from the Sustainable ICT Institute, operated by the LUCIE agency. MEGA achieved the Sustainable IT Label level 1 in July 2023 and is committed to a two-year action plan for further improvement.
