Our three CSR commitments

Commitment n°1
Social balance

To be exemplary in our day-to-day actions for fairness and respect for health and safety, while promoting diversity.

Examples of actions implemented:

  • Training in occupational risks: in 2021, 32 sites were audited and 290 people were made aware of safety.
  • Offering our clients solutions based on the well-being and satisfaction of their employees: thanks to our KSCAN & Thesaurus tools.

Commitment n°2
Respect for the environment

Adopt our eco-responsible behaviour in order to contribute to the preservation of the planet.

Examples of actions implemented:

  • Reduction of our carbon footprint: with a fleet of hybrid and low CO2 emission vehicles.
  • Eco-designed premises: “The Hangar”.
  • Sustainable Procurement Charter: implemented in 2021, this charter lists the commitments expected of our suppliers and subcontractors, but also our commitments to them in terms of sustainable development.
  • Reuse of site waste: with our service provider PAPREC, we are studying the possibility of reusing, cleaning waste, and sorting waste. In 2021, 84% of our waste was recycled into materials or energy on our Parisian renovation sites.

Commitment n°3
Economic integrity

Participate in the dynamism of local ecosystems by being honest with all stakeholders.

Sponsorship actions

The Grenoble Ecole de Management (GEM) Foundation works for a human and responsible management, to create value respectful of the ambitions of each person and the world in which we live. The projects are based on high-level applied research to anticipate the major challenges of tomorrow. The GEM Foundation launches innovative actions to address current issues. Charles Marcolin, CEO and Founder of Korus Group, is its President. The collaboration between GEM and Korus Group commenced in 2018 with the creation of the TIM Lab, a space dedicated to discovery through experimentation of the different stages of the innovation process. “As a manager, I am well placed to know: we need to oxygenate our minds and open ourselves up to new themes. As for the researchers in the chairs, they have the ability to ‘land’ their work on concrete and pragmatic issues,” explains Charles Marcolin.

Since its creation in 2015 by Grenoble IUTs (University Institutes of Technology), the Club des Entreprises has been chaired by Charles Marcolin. The Club’s aim is to work towards breaking down the lack of knowledge between the worlds of education and business, in the belief that learning takes place “throughout our life course”.

The Club’s mission is to:

  • Promote professional integration and improve employability at Secondary School / 2 years of College/Bachelor level,
  • Promote Grenoble University Institutes of Technology to companies and the local community,
  • Enable companies to develop their employer brand,
  • Expand professional networks.

The Club, under the leadership of its President Charles Marcolin, strives to build bridges between the university and the companies that will train tomorrow’s professionals, through the following pillars:

  • Apprenticeship: training tomorrow’s professionals with kindness, developing their skills, passing on experience, codes and values and benefiting from the impetus of these young people to build tomorrow’s world with them.
  • People skills and values: instilling by example a taste for hard work, commitment, respect, humility, consideration and care for others, their training, well-being and health.

We support the Global Heart Watch (GHW) association, which aims to combat sudden adult death by cardiac arrest, by raising awareness of life-saving techniques and supporting scientific research in the field of heart health.
