    An action-based approach

    Our Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) policy – which we voluntarily adopted in 2004 when we signed up to the United Nations Global Compact – is central to the way in which we implement our strategy, both in France and at international level.


    Ever since it was founded, Expanscience has been breaking new ground with its research into osteoarthritis and skincare, the aim being to keep everybody in good health.


    Constantly researching new solutions, we reconsider our practices on an ongoing basis so as to keep pace with changes in society and factor in social, societal and environmental challenges.


    By capitalising on the collective intelligence to which we have access (that of our employees, customers, suppliers, associations, etc.), we are able to make progress every day in order to more effectively meet the needs of our stakeholders.


    This open approach based on working together enables us to take care of our customers and of their environments, with the help of products that are more responsible and a range of new support services.


    Our CSR approach has been recognized as "Exemplary" by the "Committed to CSR" label since 2013 and Gold Level by EcoVadis since 2018.
