The “company with a mission” through proof. Crédit Mutuel Alliance Fédérale (CMAF), which brings together 14 of the 19 federations of the Crédit Mutuel group, announced on Wednesday the establishment of a governance dedicated to the monitoring and verification of its societal commitments. The group recalled, on Wednesday, the fourteen major commitments that will be measured in this way. At the head of this entity, called “mission committee”, the group has appointed a personality known to the general public: Fleur Pellerin.

The former minister delegate in charge of SMEs, innovation and digital technology under François Hollande’s five-year term (2012-2017) distinguished herself by giving impetus to “French tech”. Then became Minister of Foreign Trade and then of Culture, she left the government in 2016, and currently heads Korelya Capital, the start-up investment company she founded.

“This is the first time that I have accepted this type of mission, for its avant-garde side which could seem far from my activities”, explains to “Echos” Fleur Pellerin, also administrator in particular of Schneider Electric, or even of KLM . “But the subject of the company with a mission is a new parameter of the equation, you have to know these new processes”.

Equal pay

The installation of this mission committee is part of the “mission-based company” status, created in 2019 by the PACTE law and which Crédit Mutuel Alliance Fédérale adopted in October 2020: in addition to the definition of a ” raison d’être”, the law also provides for the establishment of such a governance body. Finally, an “independent third-party body”, in this case KPMG, was appointed to “verify the proper execution of the mission”.

“In our view, the originality is to be able to articulate the mission committee with the rest of the company’s governance,” underlines Nicolas Théry, Chairman of Crédit Mutuel Alliance Fédérale. The entity is thus made up of a third of “independent members” (Fleur Pellerin, or the general delegate of the Abbé Pierre Foundation), a third of elected mutualists and a final third of salaried directors of the Crédit Mutuel group. .

Among the fourteen stated objectives (termination of the financing of new projects in gas and coal, absence of medical formalities for loyal customers when subscribing to a mortgage, etc.), the group intends in particular to tackle equal pay man Woman . An envelope of 0.5% of the payroll will be specifically dedicated to it in 2022.
