Presentation of the CSR approach
Building on the commitments of our parent group Safran, corporate social responsibility underpins everything we do as a business. As a leader in the security market, Morpho is committed to meeting the expectations not only of customers but of all stakeholders, including employees, business partners, shareholders and suppliers.
We achieve this by providing high value-added, technically advanced yet remarkably easy-to-use products and services that contribute to the security of people, businesses and countries, while also taking into account key social and environmental issues.
Six Strategic Priorities
Our Code of Conduct
Our ethical principles
The Safran Code of Conduct was introduced in 2005. It sets out the Group's principles and values so that all employees can refer to them under any circumstances. The guidelines are not intended to replace or revise national laws and regulations, but to provide a reference baseline for the conduct of professional activities. You can find the Safran Code of Conduct on the "Group" section of the corporate websit.
The fight against corruption
"Safran believes that its continued success depends on the full commitment by all employees to comply with the guidelines set out in the group's Code of Conduct and business integrity programs. We also believe that ethical excellence is not just a matter of moral obligations or the need to comply with legislation; it calls for exemplary professional behavior by all individuals under all circumstances when dealing with all stakeholders."
Morpho conducts its business in compliance with all applicable anti-corruption and export control laws. To ensure application of the principles set out in its Code of Conduct, Safran has defined business compliance procedures for implementation at all Group companies. Morpho has adopted these procedures in the form of operational processes in order to take into account the specific regulatory requirements applicable to its organization, products and market.
In addition, Morpho was awarded anti-corruption certification valid until April 27, 2017 from independent auditors Mazars/ADIT.
Group companies purchase goods and services from different suppliers. They also provide goods and services to customers all over the world. It is therefore critical that Morpho complies, without exception, with all applicable regulations that govern its activities in the export and import of military or dual-use technology.
Safran has defined procedures that guarantee strict compliance with legislation governing export control.

Health, Safety, Environment
For an industrial company such as ours – and especially as a leading provider of security solutions – protecting the environment means first and foremost managing the risks involved in our business. We do this through a series of Health, Safety and Environment (HSE) initiatives aimed at reducing our carbon footprint and preserving natural resources.
A two-year plan called ExcellenSSE (SSE is the French for HSE) has been launched for the period 2014-2016 addressing the three core areas: occupational health, occupational safety and the environment.
Traceability – Conflict minerals
In August 2012 the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) issued a rule on the U.S. government's Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform Act requiring American companies to report their use of conflict minerals that originate in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) or an adjoining country. Conflict materials include tantalum, tin, gold, or tungsten. This has since prompted the European authorities to propose a framework along similar lines to regulate conflict materials sourcing. Morpho implements an ad hoc traceability procedure based on RoHS and REACH substance restrictions.

In line with legislation, and under the impetus of Safran corporate policy, Morpho deploys an inclusion policy to encourage the hiring of people with disabilities. Our proactive approach includes efforts aimed at facilitating access to jobs, maintaining employment for disabled employees, providing training, working actively with the 'protected employment' sector, and implementing communication and awareness campaigns.
In line with our non-discrimination principles, Morpho embraces gender equality in the workplace. This commitment is reflected in measures that actively promote equal access to employment, training and professional development and equal pay.
As part of our employee engagement efforts, a specific recruitment policy and tailored induction program are implemented to attract and retain recent graduates. At the other end of the scale, Morpho also gives senior employees the option of adjusting their work schedules if their job allows, especially as part of end-of career planning or to ease the transition from employment to retirement, enabling them to transmit their knowledge. In addition, managers receive specific training in avoiding all forms of discrimination during the recruitment process.
Reaching out to underserved neighborhoods
Morpho welcomes job applications from people in underserved neighborhoods and actively supports initiatives to encourage youngsters from such areas to go into higher education.
Skills development is a key engagement, performance and innovation driver, and is at the heart of Morpho's human resource policy.
We are committed to helping employees develop at every stage in their career and we do this by ensuring effective onboarding of new hires, competency management and developing management skills.
With 82% of our workforce outside of France in 40 different countries, developing cross-cultural and language skills is another top priority. Safran University plays a key role in this process, supporting the Group's transformation and equipping staff with the skills they need to integrate fully into the workplace.
Discussions between employees and their managers play an essential part in skills development. Individual interviews are the formal component in the process, providing the opportunity to pinpoint training requirements according to career goals and corporate objectives. This may involve developing specific skills or preparing employees to move on to the next stage in their career.

The involvement of suppliers and partners is one of the main thrusts of our CSR policy. To meet our corporate social responsibility commitments to stakeholders, it is essential that our partners and especially our suppliers adhere to the same principles and values. When it comes to selecting a supplier or service provider, compliance with these commitments is just as important as other considerations such as cost, quality, on-time delivery, innovation, and risk management.
Our Responsible Purchasing Code of Conduct is based on the same values as our Code of Conduct: minimum environmental impact, the safety and protection of people and property, HR management and openness with stakeholders.
Safran's commitments are formally defined in its Responsible Purchasing Charter, which applies to all Group companies. It can be found in the "Purchasing" section on the Safran website.
