    Committed to responsible performance

    Initiated several decades ago, Condat's responsible commitment is based on one of the Group's core values: BUILD TO LAST. Guided by this historical value, the company has been pursuing a long-term strategy since 1854 that contributes greatly to its longevity. Condat is thus one of the precursors of the development of industrial lubricants with reduced environmental impact, and launched more than 20 years ago its first biodegradable lubricants. Anchored in strong human values, the family group is structured around an assertive social policy.

    In 2018, Condat went further in its CSR approach by joining the international EcoVadis platform. Its CSR performance is evaluated each year by an independent body according to 21 criteria divided into 4 themes: Environment – HR and Human Rights – Business Ethics – Responsible Purchasing. These CSR assessments are based on authentic evidence and are internationally recognised. Initially silver, Condat progresses until obtaining in October 2021 the 'Platinum' level, the highest distinction awarded by EcoVadis.

    The company's objective is to reduce its ecological footprint and guide its organization towards sustainable value creation that takes into account social and environmental issues. It integrates, among other things, the Sustainable Development Goals at each stage of the life of its products, as evidenced by its unique system of self-evaluation of its eco-designed offer: the Lubriscore®. Condat also wants to influence its entire value chain, and relies on a collective of women and men involved to support customers and partners towards responsible performance, in a spirit of co-development.

    An award for the entire Condat Group

    The Platinum medal was awarded by EcoVadis to all the subsidiaries of the Condat Group. Indeed, if the group exists since 1854 in France, it has gradually developed internationally to favor customer proximity, with locations in the United States, China and Brazil. The group then diversified into the Health-Beauty market, through Laboratories specializing in the manufacture and distribution of organic and natural products (Laboratoires BEA and Sicobel) which today offer different ranges of cosmetic products (Brands BcomBio, Placentor...) and other products (Brands Green Tribu, Solens ...) dedicated to well-being through a varied offer open to the greatest number.
