Since 2017, the Crédit Agricole Group has implemented an Ethics Charter highlighting its values of close ties, responsibility and solidarity and stating its commitments, identity and principles.
The Ethics Charter has been declined operationally in the Code of Conduct which complements the commitments of the Group Charter. The rules set out in the Crédit Agricole Leasing & Factoring Code of Conduct are applicable to all CAL&F employees, as well as external and occasional employees, regardless of their position at CAL&F. They reflect our desire to do even more to better serve our customers.
An internal alert system is set up to enable any Crédit Agricole Leasing & factoring employee and any external and occasional employee to alert CAL&F's General Management about practices contrary to the Code of Conduct. It is accessible via the following link: https://www.bkms-system.com/bkwebanon/report/clientInfo?cin=3CAgr18&language=fre

To go even further, CAL&F has made gender equality a major goal of its Corporate Project for years to come. This proactive approach aims to end the wage gap between women and men, and to strengthen the presence of women at all levels of responsibility, in France as well as internationally.
