CSR

Corporate and social responsibility is critical for Broadpeak to succeed at being a sustainable company and a good place to work with a minimum environmental footprint.

We believe that the more people who contribute to sustainability, the greater the impact! Together, we can be more efficient and impactful. That’s why we have adopted a global CSR approach for our teams, partners, suppliers, and customers.

At Broadpeak, we have designed a Code of Conduct that organizes our engagement, offers guidance on decision making based on a corporate social responsibility approach, and shows stakeholders how to put Broadpeak’s values into practice.

 

EVALUATING OUR PERFORMANCE

We are serious about our footprint and responsibility! To ensure that our intentions are put into action and ultimately more sustainable practices, our CSR policies are regularly assessed by Ecovadis, a CSR and sustainable purchasing assessment platform.

In 2021, our overall score reached 59 out of 100, 13 points higher than the industry average and an improvement of 7 points since the previous assessment in 2019.

There are still many things that can be done to improve our CSR approach, and we are committed to taking action immediately, as described in our CSR Plan (available within Broadpeak’s Code of Conduct).

 

REDUCING THE ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT OF OUR ACTIVITES

At Broadpeak, we are aware that our industry is contributing to global warming and we want to minimize the impact of our activities.

In the past few years, we have been actively reducing our carbon emissions and limiting our environmental footprint.  Below are a few examples of the actions and initiatives we’ve been involved in.

  • In 2021, we co-founded Greening of Streaming, an organization that aims at quantifying the impact of streaming and promoting best practices and solutions to limit this.
  • With innovation in our DNA and energy-efficiency in mind, we have been developing technologies to reduce power consumption in video delivery networks. Watch this video that explains how Broadpeak’s technologies can contribute to more energy-efficient streaming services.
  • We’ve issued the Broadpeak Green Book; a resource for developing more sustainable practices at work.
  • We are also currently assessing different options to offset our carbon emissions linked to travel.

 

CONTINUOUSLY IMPROVING WORKING CONDITIONS

At Broadpeak, we care about the planet, but we also care deeply about every single person in our team!

Conversations and exchanges about labor are encouraged and facilitated at all levels within Broadpeak, through regular meetings, polls, and more. We offer a safe working environment and are continuously looking for ways to improve working conditions for everyone. Recently, we increased the flexibility for remote work, one of many examples!

 

LEADING THE CHARGE TOWARD EQUALITY

At Broadpeak, we believe that everyone should be treated equally independently of their sex, age and origins.

Following a French government assessment on the salary equality between women and men, Broadpeak achieved a score of 85 out of 100. There is still room for improvement, and the management team at Broadpeak is working hard on further advancing equality amongst all their employees.

GIVING BACK
At Broadpeak, we believe that part of our success comes from our environment and our communities.  For us, it is important to give back and to offer others opportunities to be successful.

We are committed to giving time, financial support, and sharing our knowledge with others so that together we can build a better place for everyone to thrive.

For the past few years, we have been supporters of the Internet Society, a global nonprofit organization empowering people to keep the internet a force for good: open, globally connected, secure, and trustworthy. In 2021, we sponsored the Early Career Fellowship Program, and our Head of Exploration mentored a participant in his project to measure the video streaming QoE of end users in South Africa.

We are also developing a program to support the nonprofit organizations for which our employees volunteer.
