As part of its CSR policy, Square embarked in 2012 on a process of obtaining the Responsible Supplier Relations Label, awarded by the French government in recognition of a set of good practices in commercial relations with its suppliers.
Responsible Supplier Relations
On 2018, July 12th, Square became the first French SME to receive the Responsible Supplier Relations Label. This French government label distinguishes companies engaged in a balanced relationship with their suppliers. It commits us to continuing our good practices, and values, through the creation of wealth, ethical and sustainable trade relations.
