Hopscotch Sopexa France has received the highest distinction for “CSR Active Agencies” by the Association of Agency Council in Communication (AACC), the Union of Public Relations Council (SCRP) and the French certification body AFNOR.
This certification, created and tailored for communications and PR agencies, is based on the CSR international standards ISO 26000 and certified by the French certification body AFNOR, a leader in the independent evaluation of corporate social responsibility for ten years. The three-star label given to Hopscotch Sopexa France certifies the company’s commitment for the next two years to four crucial components of CSR: vision and governance, delivery of services, human and social resources and environmental impact.
The label is given as one of three levels of “maturity” corresponding to the CSR of a PR agency, with Hopscotch Sopexa France receiving the highest grade of “Expert” for its responsible operations. The earning of this highest certification serves to recognize the positive social and environmental impact of Hopscotch Sopexa’s activities – for its collaborators, partners and the entirety of its ecosystem.
Hopscotch Sopexa France joins the ranks of fellow Hopscotch agencies whose CSR engagements have been awarded by the “RSE Agences Actives” label, such as Hopscotch PR and Le Public Système PR, who obtained the certification in 2022 and 2023 respectively.
In June 2022, Hopscotch Group obtained the EcoVadis Platinum medal, which rewards the top 1% of businesses by CSR performance, among all those evaluated by the EcoVadis organization.
