Created in 1986 by business executives, IMS-Entreprendre pour la Cité is a French organization that gathers more than 230 companies engaged in promoting Corporate Social Responsability (CSR). Acting on the hypothesis that companies can only develop well in a healthy environment and by creating values shared with their ecosystem, IMS seeks to assist companies in their social commitments.
As a centre of exchange, innovation and expertise on human development issues, the organisation works more specifically, with the companies, on the areas of access to employment and diversity, supporting equal opportunity in education, community engagement and inclusive business development.
IMS's action focuses on five areas :
IMS also supports general interest programmes such as the French Diversity Charter, signed by over 3,300 companies since its creation in 2004.
To best serve the companies in dealing with local issues, IMS is located in Ile-de-France - with its headquarters in Paris - and locally, with branches in Rhône-Alpes, Provence-Alpes Côte d'Azur, Alsace, West-Atlantique and Aquitaine. As well as approximately fifteen business clubs in France's major business areas.
IMS-Entreprendre pour la Cité is also member of CSR Europe, a network of companies and organisations working together to integrate corporate social responsability into business strategy and practice.
