The label (Comité Intersyndical de l’Éparge Salariale) was founded in 2002 by FDT, CFTC, CFE-CGC and CGT as a committee. The label is awarded to employee savings plans and funds with a focus on France, which must meet social and environmental requirements.
These requirements primarily relate to the treatment of employees and environmental activities of the companies involved. The label is limited in time and can be extended to four years. Receipt is not linked to any payment, and trade union organizations that are members of the CIES are not remunerated.
