THE SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT APPROACH OF STADE DE FRANCE
Since 2009, Stade de France has engaged in a sustainable development approach: work with its territory, insertion, accessibility, recovery of waste.
On June 11th 2018, it signed The Environmentally Friendly Charter for Sports Facilities Managers by which it commits, alongside the French Ministry of Sports and many other actors in sport (organisers of events, stadiums and other sporting equipment) and with the expertise of the WWF.

GENDER EQUALITY INDEX
The September 5, 2018 Act for the Freedom to Choose One’s Future Career heightened the obligations regarding equal pay for women and men. As from 2019, companies with more than 50 employees have been required to measure the pay gap between women and men with a view to eliminating it. For this purpose, a “gender equality” index was instituted. It is calculated annually and publicly disclosed by the company. At Consortium Stade de France, the gender equality index for calendar year 2020 amounted to 86 points.
