Solocal has been committed to a corporate social responsability strategy as soon as 2013.
In 2018, to identify the company’s main non-financial risks, Solocal crossed referenced the materiality analysis it had conducted with its major stakeholders and its risk mapping. This work led to the emergence of eight non-financial issues that are now monitored each year in the group's Non-Financial Performance Statement.
