Our strategy

The Lagardère group must incorporate sustainable development into the production processes of its various businesses and into the day-to-day activities of its subsidiaries, assume the responsibilities that relate specifically to Lagardère's media activities, in which digital technology is leading to fundamental change, and innovate to meet the expectation of stakeholders.

The Lagardère group commitments

To meet these objectives, Lagardère’s CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) strategy has four priorities:

  • being a responsible employer;
  • developing the business while respecting the environment;
  • promoting access to information and knowledge;
  • being a media group that fosters social cohesion.

For each of these four priorities, Lagardère has made commitments that it is pursuing as part of a continuous improvement approach.

Workforce-related commitments

These reflect the Lagardère group’s desire to create a dynamic, attractive working environment that empowers, motivates and encourages creativity among its staff:

  • ensuring workforce balance and diversity;
  • promoting harmonious working conditions;
  • encouraging the development of skills.

Social commitments

These commitments relate to the responsibilities that arise specifi cally from Lagardère’s media activities:

  • defending information pluralism and ensuring content diversity;
  • facilitating access to content and listening to various audiences;
  • supporting the digital transformation of society;
  • encouraging dialogue about sustainable development;
  • making a commitment to promoting culture and sport;
  • taking a community-based approach and promoting the emergence of young talent.

Environmental commitments

These reflect the issues and challenges involved in the Group’s various business activities:

  • preserving natural resources, particularly those used to make paper;
  • promoting energy effi ciency and helping to adjust to climate change;
  • fostering employee commitment to environmental issues.

Within each division, the sustainable development strategy is implemented by a sustainable development departmen t, which works closely with the Executive Committee. At Group level, the Sustainable Development Department – reporting to Thierry Funck-Brentano, Co-Managing Partner of Lagardère SCA – co-ordinates a steering committee in which several Group-wide departments are represented (Human Resources, Communications, Purchasing, Legal and Financial).

In 2013, Lagardère will seek to use CSR as a tool to help it adjust to developments in society.
