French term or phrase: CO (conquête-optimisation)
I'm looking for a term "CO" in English that translates this idea. This paragraph is from a Logistics company focused on meeting sustainable development objectives:

« Sur ce thème, précise Mr X, directeur de l’agence de City 1 et directeur adjoint de la région Y, nous avons été précurseurs dans la division en étant la première région entièrement certifiée ISO14001. Et depuis, nous nous sommes engagés dans une certification Sécurité (ISO 18000) et avons intégré aux normes développement durable définies pour le Groupe une dimension économique. Nous l’avons appelée CO pour Conquête-Optimisation. ».
Thanks for any help!
