2.1.1.1

Group CSR policy

Aware of the importance of sustainable development issues

and the growing expectations of its stakeholders in terms of

corporate social responsibility, Ingenico Group has developed a

CSR policy to generate inclusive and transparent growth, built

around increasingly innovative and reliable payment solutions.

This CSR policy, shared with all Ingenico Group employees, is

based on five commitments, which they are invited to apply in

their activities:

1.

Maintain responsible and ethical business practices

Ingenico Group is committed to following the highest

environmental, health, safety, labor conditions and social

justice standards in its relationships with all its stakeholders

and specifically through its supply chain management.

2.

Ensure the best level of security and safety when using

Ingenico Group solutions

Protecting sensitive payment data is part of Ingenico Group’s

DNA. Ingenico Group also believes that the protection of

personal information and respect for an individual’s right to

privacy are of utmost importance. It is dedicated to providing

the most secure and safest payment solutions for its

customers, their clients, its partners and other stakeholders.

3.

Grow along with society

Ingenico Group wants to grow its business in harmony

with its ecosystem. Therefore, the Group strives to develop

regular and open dialogue with its stakeholders in order to

foster collaborative innovation and meet the needs of the

local markets, with a specific focus on solutions that can

advance financial transparency and inclusion.

4.

Control its environmental footprint

Ingenico Group is committed to the development of payment

solutions that have a low impact on the environment. The

Group also strives to minimize the environmental footprint

resulting from the operation of its facilities and from its sales

and distribution channels.

5.

Develop a blooming Ingenico Group community

Ingenico Group strives to provide a respectful workplace that

is safe, open and inclusive. CSR contributes to the positive

corporate culture that the Group wants to promote in order

to enhance employee engagement, which is key to driving

improvements in the company’s performance and fostering

innovation.

2.1.1.2

United Nations Global Compact

and Sustainable Development Goals

Ingenico Group’s support for the United Nations Global Compact

reflects its commitment to sustainable development.

Launched in July 2000 by UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan,

the Global Compact is the world’s largest corporate social

responsibility initiative. As a supporter of the Global Compact,

Ingenico Group is committed to respecting and promoting its

10 core principles relating to human rights, labor standards, the

environment and anti-corruption.

As part of this commitment, Ingenico Group decided to integrate

the UN Sustainable Development Goals (“SDGs”) into its CSR

strategy.

On September 25, 2015, 193 UN member countries adopted

the “2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development”. This agenda

includes 17 SDGs translated into 169 targets covering a wide

range of issues related to sustainable development. These

goals call for action among governments and civil society,

but also among businesses, which are crucial partners in

this initiative. (For more information on the SDGs and their

targets, visit the United Nations website:

http://www.un.org/

sustainabledevelopment/).

Ingenico Group supports the SDGs and has already incorporated

several of them into its business operations. At this stage, the

Group is primarily focusing its efforts on SDGs that relate to

financial inclusion, the responsible management of its supply

chain, the management of its environmental impact, the

protection of personal data, financial transparency, and ethical

business practices, all of which are central to the Group’s CSR

approach.
