Sustainability by Leyton

Our ambition

Sustainable development is at the heart of Leyton’s DNA.   Through the Sustainability by Leyton programme, we are coordinating all our CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) actions by relying on the expertise of our employees in technical, energy and economic transition.  Our group also sponsors numerous organisations and foundations, whose social, environmental and societal causes we support.

The Group’s Commitments  

In order to structure this approach, we have decided to join the UN Global Compact – one of the United Nation’s international networks – undertaking to implement 10 universal principles and to annually communicate on the progress made in each office around the world. 

Leyton annually issues an accurate United Nations Global Compact Communication on Progress (COP) to highlight its key sustainable achievements.

The Pure Ocean Fund supports innovative projects which aim to build on the knowledge and preservation of fragile marine ecosystems and biodiversity. The support provided by Leyton since 2019 is helping to fund new technological, environmental and social innovations for the protection of the oceans. 

In all the countries where we are based, our employees are prepared to respond to the challenges of tomorrow with both customers and organisations alike. Now more than ever, our responsibility as a business is to actively participate in the social and environmental transition by integrating these topics into our activity. To register our development, we have grand ambitions and numerous projects – those of our employees and clients in a sustainable outlook.

An international commitment – local actions


Beyond a Group ambition enabling coordinated incentive, eachLeyton country acts independently and adapted to specific local features, with teams of volunteer employees implementing concrete social or environmental actions on a daily basis. 

How we act to reach the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)  

SDG#3 : Good Health and Well-being

In the last few months, we have initiated several campaigns to support and thank individuals who helped support the fight against COVID-19, such as donating 1% of all fees collected by the company between April and June to the National Health Service in the UK, the Pasteur Institute in France and the Spanish National Research Council (CSIC) in Spain. 

SDG#11 : Sustainable cities and communities

In Morocco, our employees organized a clean beach  operation, and in the UK several employees joined a tree planting operation. 

SDG#5 : Gender equality  

Our US & Spain offices have launched ‘Leyton Women in STEM’ campaigns to celebrate & appreciate our female technical consultants who bring highly advanced technical knowledge & industry expertise to provide valuable benefits to our clients. 

SDG#11 : Sustainable cities and communities

In line with our efforts to protect the environment, Leyton has opted for “ecological” and eco-friendly offices for its head office in Paris and also for its branch in Italy.  

SDG#7 : Affordable and clean energy

In January  2020,  we hosted The Sustainable Startup Challenge, an international competition in which start-ups competed for a chance to win a stand at #CES2020. BeFC Bioenzymatic Fuel Cells stood out with an ecological paper based fuel cell system that uses biological catalysts instead of chemical catalysts.

SDG#14 : Life below water

We are a Corporate Partner of the Blue Marine Foundation, a charity dedicated to restoring the ocean’s health by addressing overfishing, one of the world’s biggest environmental problems.
