The Global Real Estate Sustainability Benchmark (GRESB) has upped its assessment of TDF’s Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) performance. Indeed TDF was ranked second highest European company in the “Telecoms Infrastructure” category confirming it is one of the best companies in its industry.

The company turned in world-class ESG performance, particularly in “Management” where it came away with a maximum 100% score. It further keeps its “5 Star” status in all categories that is only awarded to the top 20% of companies.

GRESB also stressed other TDF ESG strengths including:
• TDF voluntarily signing up to the UN Global Compact and its ESG policy;
• Corporate governance;
• Its ongoing ESG management procedures.

TDF pledges to step up its ESG activities further
As leading French industrial company, TDF designs, rolls out and maintains fixed and mobile telecoms infrastructure and TV/radio general public broadcasting networks. Via its operations, the company helps broadcast DTT and radio, improve mobile coverage and bring about fiber broadband connectivity in rural communities.

TDF Group Chief Operating Officer Benoît Mérel said:

“GRESB’s 2023 results testify to our long-standing campaign to bridge the digital divide in rural communities. We now plan to take our ESG activities further so that we tackle operational energy and environmental issues too. We are currently working on a new campaign focusing on environmental targets and policy that will underpin our overall corporate strategy. We have long applied a strong and innovative HR policy and our Group Chief People Officer Christophe Maximilien will lead this campaign”.
