Corporate Social Responsibility and Sustainability
Reducing our Environmental Footprint and Maximizing our Social Impact
As a leading global company with significant business partnerships, Capgemini is committed to maintaining and promoting world-class standards of business integrity. Our company values, which incorporate the principles of corporate social responsibility (CSR) and sustainability, guide our relationships with clients, employees, and the communities and environment in which we operate. Our approach to sustainability addresses both our environmental and social impacts, supporting our vision to remain an employer of choice, while meeting client demands for socially responsible partners. In 2007, we formally incorporated CSR and environmental sustainability principles in the remit of our board’s Ethics and Governance Committee.
The Group respects local laws and customs while supporting international laws and regulations. These policies have been integral to the way we have done business in the past and will continue to play a central role in influencing our practice in the future.
Our Vision and Mission
At Capgemini, we live and breathe the philosophy that people matter and results count.
Our Vision: the business value of technology comes from and through people
Capgemini understands that business value cannot be achieved through technology alone. It starts with people: experts working together to get to the heart of your individual business objectives and develop the most adapted solutions to fit these requirements. We believe this human-centered approach to technology is what makes the difference for your business.
Our Mission: with you, we create and deliver business and technology solutions that fit your needs and drive the results you want
Capgemini enables you to transform your organization and improve performance. We aim to empower you to respond more quickly and intuitively to changing market dynamics. By bolstering your ability to harness the right technology, we help you become more agile and competitive.
The Values We Share
In the services business, success is powered as much by shared values as by employee skills. Capgemini's business objectives and shared standards are designed to benefit not only shareholders and employees, but also every other participant in the value chain. It is our firm belief that these objectives can only be achieved through mutual respect and cooperation.
Seven shared values have been at the heart of Capgemini since our formation. These values influence the way we meet client needs while respecting the regulatory requirements of each country in which we operate, and the way we promote ethically sound practices within Capgemini and in our partnerships. They are:
Particularly the refusal of unfair business practices aimed at obtaining a particular contract or advantage. In line with this principle, Capgemini has established clear rules with respect to commissions and gifts of all kinds.
In the sense of an entrepreneurship and desire to take considered risks balanced by prudence and clear-sightedness, without which a bold manager can become reckless.
It implies a willingness to empower employees and teams, and to allow managers to experience the effects of their initiatives and decisions. Trust also implies an open mind and genuine transparency in the flow of information, and is at the heart of our Collaborative Business Experience®.
It includes creativity, innovation, independence of mind and respect for others in their diverse cultures, habits, and customs, all of which are crucial for a company with a presence in 40 countries and that has over 100 nationalities among its employees.
With clients, employees, and partners; the ability to share in both good and bad times.
In relations with others and in our approach to issues.
Without which any corporate vision is extremely difficult, if not impossible, to implement.
We’ve created a formal code of ethics to clarify and promote these practices. Learn more about the way our long-standing values and practices are reflected in our corporate responsibility and stewardship, the way we collaborate with our clients, and the way we relate to our employees.

Paul HermelinCEO Capgemini
Since the company’s founding in 1967, Capgemini has established itself as one of the top 5 IT services and consulting companies worldwide. Over the past 4 decades, we have witnessed periods of success, challenge and reappraisal.
Our long-term growth and the accompanying expansion of our service offering have relied on internal evolutions, international acquisitions and organic expansion. The following timeline gives an overview of our journey:
The early years (1967-1975)
Capgemini traces its roots to the French city of Grenoble, where Serge Kampf founded Sogeti in 1967. By 1975, the acquisition of 2 large IT services companies, CAP and Gemini Computer Systems, had established the company as a European leader, present in 21 countries.
Time for expansion (1975-1989)
The company continued to grow and develop, shifting its focus from capital-intensive machine solutions to high-value intellectual services. By 1989, internal restructuring, European expansion and American market entry had positioned the company among the 5 leaders in its sector worldwide.
New strategies for growth (1990-1997)
Capgemini built a world-class management consulting practice through a series of strategic acquisitions including United Research (1990) and the Mac Group (1991) in the U.S. and Gruber Titze and Partners (1993),and Bossard (1997) in Europe.
Building the future (1998-present)
As the global IT market evolved, we increased emphasis on two of our businesses: local professional services and outsourcing. We have also developed an approach we call Rightshore®. This approach relies on both offshore capabilities – including 19,900 people in India as of June 2009 with the acquisition of Kanbay, as well as offshore centers in Morocco and Argentina – and nearshore resources in countries including Poland and Spain.
Capgemini India offices are located in Bangalore, Mumbai, Chennai, Hyderabad, Pune and Kolkata.
