The Lagardère group’s CSR roadmap, which is adapted to its stakeholders’ growing expectations with regard to responsibility and increasing regulatory constraints on a national and European level governing non-financial information, is based on four main commitments.
1. Limiting the environmental impact of products and services.
In addition to common measures across all companies to combat climate change, the Lagardère group has also taken measures specific to its operations, such as responsible management of its resources (in particular paper and plastic) and ensuring an environmentally responsible food chain in connection with its foodservice operations at transport hubs.
Lagardère aims to reduce all of its direct and indirect emissions (scopes 1, 2 and 3) by nearly 30% by 2030 (compared to 2019). Lagardère is thus aiming for a trajectory in line with the Paris Agreement, i.e. a trajectory compatible with achieving the global objective of zero net emissions by 2050.
2. Placing people at the heart of its strategy,
by making attention paid to its human resources a priority that goes beyond the essential aspects of dialogue with employee representatives, safety and working conditions. The Lagardère group intends to commit itself to an enhanced policy of diversity and inclusion, and makes combating sexism in the workplace one of the core focuses of its gender balance policy. Furthermore, its day-to-day involvement in developing the skills of its employees also helps to attract and retain talented staff.
3. Sharing the social and cultural diversity of its activities with as many people as possible.
By means of the content published and distributed by the Group, as well as its various partnerships and cultural and social solidarity programmes, Lagardère promotes access to education and knowledge while also defending freedom of expression, pluralism of ideas and cultural diversity.
4. Assure ethical and responsible governance.
The Lagardère group is committed to developing its activities in line with the major challenges of quality, compliance and ethics, while trying to seize the opportunities linked to the implementation of these challenges.
