Our raison d’être
Business & innovation
serving the common good
Vianeo is concretely committed to face the current and future social and environmental challenges.
We are convinced that innovation is a privileged source of positive impact. Impact creates value. It plays a major and growing role in the sustainability of an economic model. The positive and tangible impacts it has on both its internal and external ecosystem consolidate the economic health of any innovation project.
Therefore, Vianeo is dedicated to promote the development of projects with positive social and environmental impacts. We are committed to ensure that our solutions to support innovation and transformation take into account this mission.

1. Implementation of CSR actions
We work on three major fields: environmental, social and governance. For each one of them, our objective is to improve our own impact, whether internally in our daily work or with regard to external actors.
Our CSR actions and objectives are based on the following dimensions :
- Environmental protection: waste management, team gardens…
- Volunteer support for entrepreneurs: migrants, vulnerable groups, etc.
- The integration in each training sessions of a person who has difficulty financing his or her training and who is working on subjects with an impact.
- Well-being in our workplace, in our collaboration and the life of the team
2. Integrate impact criteria into our business design method
We have embarked on a project to develop our offerings in order to better support impact project leaders and to raise awareness of social and environmental issues among all project leaders.
Following a survey conducted with project leaders, coaches and investors, we identified two issues to be resolved:
- How to find the right balance between social/environmental impact and economic viability?
- How assess and add value the environmental and/or social impact of one’s innovative project?
