Home > Group > About AFNOR > Values
The AFNOR association and its affiliates form an international group focused on promoting public interest concerns and better economic growth by designing and deploying standards-driven solutions to drive progress and build trustability.
As they execute this mission, all AFNOR group collaborators create and share four core values. By embodying these values, they are united in their commitment to serve our customers, collaborators and partners.
Our conception of value puts people first but also extends to a set of beliefs and behaviours endorsed across the AFNOR Group.
Quality is a focal AFNOR Group requirement ingrained in the culture of AFNOR Group people.
Quality is a challenge that we share with our customers, our partners and a broad panel of stakeholders as part of an ongoing drive to enable progress and gain competitive edge.
Our vision sees quality as an essential value for shaping the future.
Trust the pillar of social and economic ties is forged through tried-and-tested processes that we have nurtured every day since 1926.
Our position as trusted third party hinges on unwavering commitments on the integrity of people we work with, on accountability in what we do, and on transparently reaching out to stakeholders to make neutrality, impartiality and independence the hallmark of our activities.
Our activities address major societal concerns and help to build a safer and more socially responsible world.
Our governance mechanisms and decision-making processes are rooted in the long-term and internalize the sphere of influence we interact with.
“Working together in a network” is stamped on our DNA as a group, backed by an associative structure, that mobilizes our in-group resources to develop activities that serve wider public-interest concerns.
As we evolve in a broad network of member-actors, we facilitate the expression of each member's talents to help build better, community-shared prospects for the future.
