We can no longer ignore the strain on our planet’s resources and the increasing inequalities. As we have seen in 2020, everything can come to a halt overnight; we have to decide what kind of legacy we want to leave behind.
CSR is an integral part of who we are and guides all of our strategic decisions. Eating well has become a major concern, a civic duty even. Selecting our products and encouraging our customers to adopt a healthy, sustainable diet are cornerstones in our Group’s strategy. But unless we formalize and monitor our commitments, our belief will never produce tangible results.
Fulfilling these goals is paramount to our company’s long-term growth and a measure of its sustainability. We are taking action in the areas that matter, with the humility and efficiency that characterize us. To this end, we have adopted strong and concrete commitments that will make a real-life impact, extending well beyond our already ambitious business and objectives.
We want to focus our Group’s growth around issues that make an impact:
- the fight against food waste,
- waste reduction and recovery,
- responsible purchasing,
- reducing our carbon footprint,
- and a strong commitment to our employees.
Respect for our values offers a clear strategic direction which requires everyone to get on board.
This charter is only the beginning, the first step in our long-term investment in sustainable and inclusive growth.
