Inclusion is one of the major themes of Consort Group’s social policy.
Talking about inclusion means talking about our actions, our results, the way we approach our businesses and digital technology in general as levers for equal opportunities. It is important to take action in all the regions where the Group operates to promote inclusion and solidarity between generations and populations.
• Digital accessibility
• Responsible purchasing
An accessible website or mobile application enables people with restrictions or disabilities to access its content and functions without difficulty and without external assistance. For example, an accessible website allows users to :
- navigate using a voice synthesiser and/or a Braille display (used in particular by blind and partially-sighted people),
- customise the display of the site according to your needs (enlarging characters, changing colours, etc.),
- navigate without using the mouse (only with the keyboard, via a touch screen, by voice or any other adapted device).
The growing importance of digital technology, particularly in administrative and commercial activities, is prompting our customers to think about setting up a more responsible and inclusive digital environment.
When we talk about accessibility in our projects, we’re talking about our ability to help our customers think about the accessibility of their services (banking, transport, distribution, etc.).
Contributions are already being made. For example, within the teams of the Business & Testing community on the BNP LS project: accessibility tests, design of tools for automatic audits of web pages with regard to the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0 (international) or the RGAA general accessibility reference framework for administrations applicable from 25 July 2019 to all companies with a turnover of more than 250 million.
A start that also involves our resources in terms of web development, mobile development, the design of our customers’ future sites or applications, and effective testing for this type of accessibility test, beyond ergonomics and self-learning..
