What is Sustainable Development ?

The Bruntland Report (published in 1987), named after the President of the World Commission on Environment and Development (and who was also the Prime Minister of Norway) defined "sustainable development" as follows:

"development which meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs, and especially the most basic needs of the world's poor [...]."

A company or organisation makes a commitment to sustainable development when, for each decision taken, they consider the possible impacts this decision may have on the environment, staff, society and economy.”

For each decision, the potential impact on the environment, staff, society and economy must be considered. This reasoning requires a review of operating methods and a more cross-functional and global approach to problems.
3 sides of GeoPost Sustainable Developmnent

Since its creation, GeoPost has achieved profitable growth and progressively integrated Sustainable Development in its result-based culture.
It is our conviction that Sustainable Development is a challenge shared by each individual and at all company levels. Making Sustainable Development part of our culture means running our business in a responsible way. This philosophy – which we named Responsibility – integrates all aspects of Sustainable Development.
If the first years were all about raising awareness about Sustainable Development and deeply analysing our stakes, today GeoPost is to integrate Responsibility in every aspect of its activity.

Responsibility is a journey. Only by a progressive and concerted action can GeoPost reduce its impact on the Planet, support its People and serve the Community.

GeoPost focuses its initiatives and actions around the following three pillars of its sustainable development Charter :

  • Environment,
  • Economy,
  • Social and corporate social responsibility.
