Corporate Social Responsibility

As a Travel Retail operator serving hundreds of thousands of passengers every day, we must adapt the way we do business in order to contribute to building a more sustainable industry.

Our CSR strategy, PEPS (Planet.Ethics.People.Social), is aligned to the global stakes the travel retail industry is facing and is at the heart of our strategy and decision-making. 

In 2021, we have established an ambitious roadmap to improve our environmental impact faster and have a greater positive impact on the communities we serve. We have set clear targets to measure the progress made towards fulfilling our commitments. These are fully aligned with our stakeholders’ needs and expectations and will be monitored and communicated on a yearly basis. Our CSR roadmap is articulated around 4 pillars underpinned by 12 tangible commitments which all relate to one of more of the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals.
