Within each division, the CSR strategy is implemented by a body that 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 (including Human Resources, Communications, Purchasing, Legal, Risk, Finance, IT and the Jean-Luc Lagardère Foundation), as well as each division's sustainable development managers.
