CASTALIE, a member of the Social and Solidarity Economy

CASTALIE is part of the Social and Solidarity Economy (ESS), and an accredited Solidarity Enterprise of Social Utility (ESUS), like 1,700 other companies in France. What does this mean, exactly?

The ESS is composed of organisations seeking to reconcile social utility, solidarity, economic performance and shared governance, with the goal of creating jobs and developing greater social cohesion.

As for ESUS accreditation, its main goal is social utility, and it has a direct impact on a company’s accounts. At CASTALIE, we have made firm commitments. These include:

Corporate purpose

Our articles of association now specify that our corporate purpose is to contribute to sustainable development.

Shared governance

Our articles of association have set up an SSE Committee, whose purpose is to help the managers define the company’s strategy, ensure that it upholds its ESS obligations, and measure the company’s social impact.
