ISO 14001

We believe that the Redspher environmental objectives are aligned and contribute to meet Group’s long term targets:

  • Reducing the environmental impact of Redspher’s direct activity and of its employees
  • Reducing the environmental impact of the transports organized by the Group for its customers by:
    • Optimization and reduction of empty mileage thanks to innovative and digital new solutions
    • Promoting the use of cleaner and fuel efficient engines within our suppliers


Redspher’s strategy: Sustainable growth:

  • Expand our leadership position in Europe and do our first steps in another continent,
  • Meet our 2023 financial target,
  • Offer value added services to our customers in terms of Environment, Social and Business Ethics, 
  • Invest in process digitization to achieve our goals and protect the interests of our stakeholders

The Environmental Management System (EMS) of Redspher covers in particular the operations of the sites of Lille (France) and Maastricht (The Netherlands) sites that are in the process of being certified and underpins the objectives set in our Environmental Policy. 

The policy of Redspher is focused on implementing and maintaining the EMS in an effective and profitable way. The goal of the EMS is to be able, at any moment, to comply with the requirements of customers and interested parties as well as with all relevant legislation and regulations. The EMS incorporates the requirements of ISO 14001:2015.

Redspher is fully committed to continuous improvement in all its processes and practices to maintain on a high level its environmental performance through constant review.  Redspher is committed to the protection of the environment in all aspects of its business and in particular to significant aspects of its operations including prevention of pollution. 

Our Environmental approach, like all the initiatives launched by the group, aims above all at satisfying customers and interested parties. Our EMS must be simple, pragmatic and innovative, both in terms of solutions designed to reduce environmental impacts and how to involve teams. It is a unifying project which illlustrates the Group’s CSR commitments, based on concrete, measurable and verifiable actions by all interested parties.

Trust, transparency and honesty are the core of our business ethics, as shown by our Group’s values. Flash believes that acting ethically, opposing any kind of corruption and reducing the impact of its activities on the environment is essential to the sustainable growth of the Group.

Therefore, Flash has implemented its own Code of Conduct and each member of the Group, whatever its status and role, has been required to fully adhere to it and constantly refer to it.



The Flash Group joined in October 2016, the United Nations Global Compact, which is the world’s largest corporate sustainability initiative. By doing so, the Group made the commitment to abide and promote in its business practices the ten principles of the Global Compact related to human rights, labour, environment and anti-corruption.
