This approach is based on 6 pillars:

• Human rights
• Working conditions
• The environment
• Fair trade practices
• The challenges faced by clients and users
• Our regional engagement


The group’s Quality, Safety and Environment approach is in line with the ISO 9001, ISO 45001 and ISO 14001 standards and is based on the continuous improvement of each company’s processes.


All our factories are ISO 9001 certified, which attests to the conformity and effectiveness of our customer management system in meeting the regulatory and normative requirements regarding our products and our organization. This certification meets our desire for transparency towards our customers and partners. It desmonstrates to the conscientious work of all our employees who are involved every day and is a guarantee of safety for our users.


Managing the safety of our employees in our companies is a priority and part of our DNA. How could we care about the safety of the users of our products if we didn’t care about the safety and health of our employees at work?

To go further, and to make our companies part of a more sustainable world, respectful of its environment and contributing to the reduction of GHG, we are working on a CSR program. In doing so, we have obtained the EcoVadis Silver Award in 2022.


The Frénéhard & Michaux business sectors are concerned by the challenges of green growth. We mainly use steel and aluminum, materials that can be recycled ad infinitum. The various companies in the group strive every day to limit the environmental impact of their activities by improving waste management, recycling actions and by working on the reduction of the energy consumption of our plants.
