  • An on going dialogue with stakeholders

    For nearly 10 years, the Group has been gathering its stakeholders together on a yearly basis to share details of its achievements on key sustainability issues. This approach of sharing and discussing is one of the mainstays of Carrefour’s commitment to sustainable development. Projects carried out in collaboration with major organizations—such as the International Federation for Human Rights (FIDH) since 2000 and the WWF since 1997—have helped the Group move forwards with regard to sustainable development: it has been engaged in increasingly socially committed trade, keeping a watch, for example, on the working conditions under which products are manufactured in sensitive countries. Similarly, social partners are kept informed and are consulted on a regular basis in order to improve the Group’s sustainable development approach, through the European Consultation and Information Committee (CICE) in particular.
