Additionally, the goal is to prioritize the use of renewable energy sources, energy-efficient technologies, and sustainable transportation options, while also collaborating with suppliers and clients to reduce the indirect environmental impact of operations.
We are proud to be engaged in the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi), which provides companies with a clear pathway to set science-based emissions reduction targets that are in line with the goals of the Paris Agreement. At CT, we have set science-based targets to reduce our greenhouse gas emissions in line with the latest climate science. We will regularly report our progress towards meeting these targets through the Climate Disclosure Program (CDP), a global platform for companies to report their environmental impacts and progress towards sustainability goals.
1. The short-term objective is to reduce absolute scope 1, 2 and 3 GHG emissions 42% by 2030 from a 2022 base year.
2. The long-term objective is to reduce absolute scope 1, 2 and 3 GHG emissions 90% by 2050 from a 2022 base year (Net-Zero).
Waste Management and Recycling: The objective is to minimize pollution by reducing waste generated during our activities through the promotion of reuse and recycling whenever feasible, and optimize the efficient use of raw materials and energy.
1. The aim is to purchase 95% recycled paper for all uses by 2025.

The CT Engineering Group, dedicated to engineering projects, is committed to upholding labor and human rights as fundamental principles within its operations. We recognize the importance of ensuring fair and ethical treatment of our employees, fostering diversity, equity, and inclusion,
and eradicating child and forced labor.
Applicability: This policy applies to all sites within the CT Engineering Group. Every site is expected to adhere to the guidelines and principles outlined in this policy.
This policy outlines our objectives and commitments in key areas related to labor and human rights:
Diversity, Discrimination & Harassment: The CT Engineering Group is committed to creating a diverse, equitable, and inclusive workplace and to the principle that every individual should have access to equal treatment and opportunities, irrespective of personal characteristics unrelated to their skills, performance, or qualifications. CT prohibits any form of discrimination, harassment, or intimidation based on factors such as age, origin, skin color, disability or impairment, nationality, race, religion, gender, sexual orientation or preference, gender identity, appearance, political affiliations, marital status, or any other characteristic protected by law. CT expects its employees, in all circumstances and locations, to maintain an environment free from discrimination, harassment, intimidation, or retaliation. CT is a politically neutral space: we
deeply respect the political freedom of thought of all individuals working within the company, and therefore, we refrain from expressing political comments or opinions on internal forums and
1. The goal is to reach 50% of employees trained on discrimination and harassment

Working Conditions: The CT Engineering Group is dedicated to providing fair and conducive working conditions to its employees. At CT we understand flexible working hours as a
mechanism of mutual benefit: company-employee. Flexibility allows the employee to better reconcile and attend to personal commitments. For the company, it is a way to better adapt to the needs of its clients and improve its performance, while at the same time contributing to creating a better working environment. Part of the employee voice is giving people the opportunity to express their concerns or ideas for potential improvement. At CT, there are multiple processes to fuel continuous improvement: lessons learned, audits, innovation
proposals… but sometimes these feedback don’t fit into any of CT’s processes. A dedicated
process is therefore available for employees to propose any type of concern and feedback
related to working conditions.
1. A working environment survey is sent every year. The objective, included in the incentives of the managers, is to reach 90% in the last question of the survey: “I definitely recommend to work in The CT Engineering Group to a friend of mine?”

representatives, and are committed to supporting the creation of trade unions where employees
express a desire to do so, in compliance with applicable labour regulations. All employees have
the right to join trade unions, works councils or other collective bargaining groups.
1. From 2023, the aim is to reach 90% of employees covered by formally-elected
employee representatives (work councils).
Career Management & Training: At CT, we’re committed to helping our employees build their careers and continuously improve. We make sure everyone knows their job, responsibilities,
and what’s expected of them. As you progress, your technical career advances through Personal
Skill List (PSL) and the opportunity to take on different roles, all evaluated annually. We don’t tie your salary to preset criteria but to your contributions and the depth of your role development, while encouraging professional growth without requiring a move into management. We provide opportunities for internal mobility, allowing you to explore new roles and challenges within the company. Our aim is to support your career development and provide fair and equitable compensation, emphasizing learning and growth. The Annual Evaluation Interview (AEI) is the cornerstone of this policy: the AEI primary goals are to provide performance feedback, identify training needs, create a clear training plan with specific goals and assess technical contributions.
