As a member of the United Nations Global Compact since 2007, CGG recognizes the ten principles derived from:

  • the Universal Declaration of Human Rights
  • the International Labor Organization’s Declaration on Fundamental Principles & Rights at Work
  • the Rio Declaration on Environment & Development
  • the United Nations Convention against Corruption

CGG looks for continuous improvement in the areas of Human Rights, labor rights, environmental protection and anti-corruption and reports in all transparency in a detailed Sustainable Development Report, also called Communication on Progress (COP).

Since 2012, HSE and social information is assured by independent assurors as per French Grenelle 2 law requirement. Independent verifier’s report on consolidated information is published each year in our COP.

Since 2013, the CGG Communication on Progress qualifies for the Global Compact Advanced level, meaning that it goes beyond the minimum Global Compact requirements to cover also the company’s implementation of advanced criteria and best practices.
