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.

CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) certification is the implementation of sustainable development at company level.
It involves a company taking initiatives to protect both the environment and society.
CSR is based on three main pillars: the first is environmental, the second is social and the third is economic.
Square is one of the top companies assessed by EcoVadis.
To mark the occasion, a tree was planted in our name through the One TreePlanted partnership.
