Ghislain de Castelbajac will present the implementation of investigations and enquiries in the framework of international laws and regulations.

  • One hundred years after the first commercial flights, the aeronautical industry is confronted with a multitude of constraints linked to security against terrorist acts, sanitary constraints, geopolitical constraints (embargos on materials, overflights), social constraints (dumping of labour laws, control of supply chains), but also compliance and governance with certain recent practices linked to international investigations for facts or suspicions of corruption or circumvention of embargos. The new taxonomies set up by many investment funds and donors concern the CSR theme of “ESG criteria”, for “Environment, Social and Governance”. Public opinion is also seizing on these issues, and the aerospace industry cannot afford the luxury of missing the train of transformation and innovation in these areas.
  • Examples of transformation of the aerospace industry in the fields of ESG will be presented in all transparency, and in exchanges allowing a mutually enriching reflection.

Philippe Clerc will present the management of compliance and ethics risks in space agencies in the context of newspace, based on his experience at CNES.

CNES is very involved in public-private partnerships and in European and international cooperation, and has implemented a proactive compliance and ethics policy based on the best practices in force. It is organised around a coherent system comprising a risk map, a code of conduct for employees, a process for evaluating partners, procedures for reporting or alerting, declarations of interest, acceptance or granting of gifts and invitations, an overhaul of contractual intervention methods, training and awareness-raising actions, a system of sanctions, an evaluation system, an ethics charter and dedicated committees to provide guidance to the management bodies.

Philippe Clerc proposes to describe the principles and conditions of implementation of this “compliance and business ethics” policy, for which he has operational responsibility.

  • With a technical background and an extensive experience in Production and in the Supply Chain Management, in Customer Relationship, and in Continuous Improvement, Alain ROMAN and his teams ensure the compliance of the worldwide operations of Safran Landing Systems (Safran Group). He will give a very operational view of the compliance activities for a big player of the Aerospace industry.
