Interview with Florent Razafi, COO at Valiantys

Could you give us an overview of the ESG strategy at Valiantys and what key areas you are currently focusing on?

At Valiantys, our ESG strategy is structured around three main pillars: environmental impact and  sustainability, the ongoing well-being of our colleagues for employees, and robust governance. We are committed to lowering our environmental impact, ensuring our policies support our team’s well-being, and maintaining transparent governance through our CSR Committee and ESG Working Group.

What are the main objectives of Valiantys’ ESG program, and how do these align with your long-term corporate strategy

Our main objectives revolve around addressing factors that are material to our operations and stakeholders. For instance, we prioritize diversity, equity and inclusion as it is crucial for our employees’ sense of belonging, and we recognize the significance of sustainability for our customers. These insights drive our ESG goals. Additionally, the CSR Committee plays a pivotal role in setting and evaluating these objectives, ensuring they are seamlessly integrated into our corporate strategy.

 

Valiantys has initiated several sustainability programs. Can you discuss one or two of these initiatives and their impact so far?

We have taken significant steps, including transitioning our offices to renewable energy sources and hosting our customers in green data centers that use energy-efficient technologies, improving our service reliability and performance. Recently, we began implementing Science Based Targets (SBTis) to ensure our business aligns with recognized standards, and we are continuing to develop in this area. These efforts help us reduce our environmental impact, enhance our operational efficiencies, and strengthen our market positioning by aligning with the expectations of stakeholders and customers.

What have been the most significant challenges in implementing your ESG strategy, and how has Valiantys addressed these challenges?

Integrating ESG across our global operations presents challenges, particularly with varying regional compliance requirements. We address these through our governance structure, which allows us to tailor our strategies to different markets while ensuring they align with our overall ESG goals. Regular monitoring and evaluation also help us stay on track and address issues proactively.

Looking ahead, what are the next steps for ESG at Valiantys? Are there any upcoming projects or changes to your current policies?

The sustainability landscape is shifting quickly, and we are all about keeping pace and leading the way at Valiantys. We’re particularly focused on adapting to the new sustainability reporting requirements that the CSRD (Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive) introduces. This means we’re enhancing our monitoring frameworks and really diving deep into understanding how to quantify the positive impact we are creating. It’s all about staying ahead of the curve and making sure our policies not only meet but exceed the evolving standards.
