Solidarity at Carrefour

For Carrefour, being involved in solidarity means helping people every day in the countries in which the Group operates. Drawing on its profession as a retailer and its knowledge of local conditions, Carrefour provides support for people of all social backgrounds and works with non-profit organisations to address a highly diverse range of issues at local, national and international levels.

Open to the world, one of Carrefour’s missions is to strengthen ties between populations by suppor ting the development of people and communities in need and their integration. To that end, Carrefour is involved in food programmes supported by the Carrefour Foundation, through sponsorship projects conducted at country level and through the solidarity initiatives deployed by its stores and warehouses. In fact, it is the sum of the solidarity actions conducted by Carrefour day in day out that delineates its active commitment to society at large.

A shared commitment

Being involved in solidarity is everyone’s concern

In addition to the operational commitment and financial suppor t provided by the company, Carrefour encourages the ongoing involvement of its employees, stores, warehouses and head offi ces, all of which engage in solidarity actions on a daily basis.
