The TF1 group moves into content production and digital. Strengthening the complementary fit and identity of its channels and stepping up its transition to the digital world, it is affirming its leadership role in the private television sector in France.
That transformation is based on a shared vision and values, key among these last being respect for others and exemplariness. In this respect, the Group’s corporate social responsibility also needs to aim for excellence, by responding to the expectations of all our stakeholders. The Group’s commitment concerns the programmes produced and broadcast across all media, as well as the behaviour of the company.
The compliance of our broadcasting to the commitments made with the authorities, especially as concerns the quality of news, is a key issue for the TF1 group and vital to the trust placed in us by our viewers. Similarly, the relations that the Group maintains with its partners are based on the ethical principles set out in TF1’s Code of Ethics.
Attentive to French society, the Group is strongly committed to gender equality, the fight against discrimination and the promotion of social relations and solidarity.
In sustainable development, our key objective is to raise public awareness of climate issues, through our news programmes, weather forecasts and the programmes of the Ushuaïa TV channel. Our direct environmental footprint may be small, but it is nevertheless our duty to reduce it in line with European objectives and encourage our partners to do the same.
The employability of staff is an unwavering concern of the company, as seen in its policy on talent management, nourished by training, internal mobility, innovation and partnerships with the academic world.
We need to continuously develop dialogue with our public to ensure that the TF1 group – a mass media – also stands as a media that is close to people and accessible to all those desiring to come into contact with it.
Our CSR policy is the product of collaborative work between all the sectors of the company. To report on that policy in a transparent and rigorous manner, our CSR reporting process complies with the legal french requirements in the Grenelle 2 article, with a third financial year of integrated reporting, as well as with the international guidelines of the Global Reporting Initiative. Our materiality study is now open permanently, and your contribution will help us to continue making progress.
I hope you enjoy your read.
