DEDICATED TO SUSTAINABILITY AND RESPONSIBLE GROWTH
Our planet is facing many challenges—the changing climate, the increasing demand for food and the depletion of natural resources are just a few of today’s growing concerns.
To remain sustainable, we have to optimize our resources and acknowledge socially responsible behavior as an obligation across our organization. To achieve sustainability and responsible growth, we need to take all of our stakeholders into consideration. We have developed a model, based on the UN Global Compact principles, to drive progress within our CSR activities, and we focus our efforts within five specific areas: Marketplace, Supply chain, Environment, Workplace and Community. We continuously set and achieve ambitious objectives within each of these areas, thanks to various internal and external performance benchmarks, our sharing of best practice principles and our highly engaged global organization.
