Corporate Social Responsibility
Leading with influence for 180 years: conscious of the role we play
We have established a Social and Environmental Responsibility programme centred on four pillars and twelve commitments. Our commitment is displayed through concrete acts.
La Redoute observes the UN Global Compact
Companies have a vital role to play in the development of sustainable societies. Firm in its DNA as an influence leader, La Redoute is a signer of the Global Compact. An initiative of the United Nations, the Global Compact is the largest international voluntary commitment for sustainable development. La Redoute is one of the few French companies not listed on the CAC 40 to make this pledge.
La Redoute has joined « Go for Good », the Galeries Lafayette movement for a more responsible fashion and home decoration.
The Galeries Lafayette teams have drawn up specifications to determine which labels could be part of this approach, guided by three dimensions: impact on the environment, social development and the local production (French manufacturing).
A product is mentioned as Go for Good when it meets one of the 38 criteria of the public specifications established by Galeries Lafayette, which range from the choice of raw materials to social and environmental issues. Go for Good products are not perfect. This is why the criteria fulfilled are specified each time in the product sheet in order to be as complete as possible.
Today, firm in its DNA as an influence leader, La Redoute is a signer of the Global Compact.
