A Code of Ethics promoting the company's values and culture

For many years, the Lagardère group has endeavoured to respect and promote rigorous business ethics. This is one of the key aspects of its values and its corporate culture. In 1994, it drew up a Code of Conduct that sets out the main principles and the general framework for all activities undertaken by the men and women at the Group.

This Code is updated regularly in order to take account of changes within the Group and the world around it, and thereby respond to new requirements in conducting its operations. The Code underwent an in-depth review in 2020. Now the Code of Ethics, it is more accessible and reasserts in particular Lagardère's commitment in terms of business ethics, communicating publicly on the existence of the Ethics Line reporting platform.

Rolled out in 2020, this platform can be accessed by all the Group's stakeholders from a dedicated website ( It can be used to report confidentially any unlawful or unethical behaviour observed within the framework of the Group's activities.
The creation of Ethics Line reflects Lagardère's desire to encourage a culture of responsibility by offering its stakeholders - in particular its employees - an easy and safe way of reporting information.
