Corporate Social Responsibility

Mindful of its responsibilities as a retail and fashion leader, the Galeries Lafayette group pursues a comprehensive sustainable development policy designed to make it a global pacesetter as a French retail leader with an ethical, responsible approach. That goal to become a responsible retailer, part of the circular economy and focused on human values, is implemented through three action plans that aim to meet future challenges. Its success is dependent on all stakeholders: clients, employees, brands, partners and suppliers.

Our Areas of Focus

We want to consolidate our responsible development goals through a strategy of partnerships
serving our values and aligned with our core business through three action plans.
