The National Institute for Sustainable Development and Corporate Social Responsibility has been assessing the company’s CSR performance since 2015.

Consulting company MindForest has been awarded the ESR "Responsible Company" label in Luxembourg by the National Institute for Sustainable Development and Corporate Social Responsibility (INDR). The label, valid for three years, has been obtained for the third time in a row as the INDR has been eyeing MindForest’s corporate social responsibility policy and actions assessed since 2015

"Our CSR policy is an integral part of the company's strategy and is part of a resolutely participative approach; it is supported by the management and recognized by all our employees who actively contribute to it via our CSR committee created in 2014,” said Jane Barton, head of CSR. “We take our CSR commitment very seriously, not only because it is the right thing to do, but also because we are convinced that it is a key element in the growth of our company.”

The company says it has maintained or improved its CSR performance in key areas including governance and human resources, where it has implemented a Myers Briggs Type Indicator approach allowing staff to obtain “better knowledge of oneself and one’s colleagues”. In addition, MindForest emphasizes good mental health and encouraged team spirit thanks to the organisation of informal exchanges and activities.

It has also installed a filtered water fountain directly connected to the building's water supply system, and the distribution of reusable water bottles has eliminated the use of plastic bottles entirely.
