On the way up by Manitou Group

Manitou Group launched today the first edition of an annual event dedicated to the group CSR.

The On the way up event was attended virtually by almost 200 people (journalists, clients, suppliers…) from all around the world. Presented by Michel Denis, President & CEO, Hervé Rochet, Corporate Secretary, and Aude Brézac, CSR Director, this program was created in the form of a television show to give the group an opportunity to explain its CSR approach, which it initiated 10 years ago. This event was conceived in collaboration with many stakeholders.


The program was split into three parts.

  • CSR at the heart of the group’s concerns
  • CSR roadmap in connection with New Horizons 2025
  • action plan to be followed over the next 12 months.


Several concrete actions were presented for each of the four pillars of the group's CSR strategy, which are ethics and human beings, the circular economy, safety and working conditions, and a low-carbon trajectory. On this latter point, the group announced that it would publish its carbon trajectory objectives, which will be based on scientific methods, before the end of 2021.


By making the program a must-see annual event, the group intends to communicate year after year, with transparency and humility, its progress on its action plan to achieve the objectives set out in its CSR road map. The next edition is already planned for summer 2022.
