Our "raison d'être" (core purpose)


FDJ defined a “core purpose” in 2020, confirming its determination to continue implementing a business model combining performance, responsibility and social utility. Adopting a raison d’être was a natural choice in view of FDJ’s history, business model and commitments.

Our CSR policy


FDJ intends to be a leading player in corporate responsibility, serving sustainable performance and contributing positively to all its stakeholders.

     

FDJ's CSR approach is based on six major themes that take into account the expectations of its stakeholders as well as non-financial issues, notably those specific to the gambling sector.

     
 1 - Responsible Gaming 
 
 2 - Integrity 
 
 3 - Human Resources 
 
 4 - Solidarity 
 
 5 - Regions 
 
 6 - Environment 


FDJ is a recognised player that is strongly committed to responsible gaming. This long-standing commitment is a the heart of FDJ's gambling model, which is : 

 

 Extensive because it is aimed at a large pool of players; 

 

 Recreational because it is based on a diversified range of games for moderate gambling; 

 

 Responsible thanks to the FDJ Group's proactive policy of preventing excessive gambling and gambling by minors. 

           

FDJ presents its strategy, challenges and results in terms of social responsibility in the following documents:

    

 The extra-financial performance declaration  (in the universal registration document)

    

 The integrated report
