Human rights in the supply chain
Kering’s business conduct is founded upon the respect and protection of human rights. As an engaged and responsible corporate citizen, Kering is fully committed to all employees of the Group and its Houses as well as those working throughout the supply chain.
Since its creation, the Group has made social and environmental responsibility the core focus of its operations and organization. As early as 1996, Kering championed a strong culture of integrity by establishing its first Ethics Charter.
Today, with more than 38,000 employees worldwide, Kering complies with the major international reference
texts on human rights and fundamental freedoms. The Group uses the following standards in its commitment to promote sustainable and responsible business conduct:
CODE OF ETHICS AND SUPPLIERS’ CHARTER
First published in 2005, the Code of Ethics sets out the Group's ethical principles and expectations of its employees and partners. It also defines Kering’s commitment to the environment and to society at large.
CHARTER ON WORKING RELATIONS AND THE WELL-BEING OF MODELS
Published in September 2017, the Charter applies to all of Kering’s Houses, reflecting high standards of integrity, responsibility and respect.
As part of its 2025 sustainability strategy, Kering is committed to ensuring 100% compliance from suppliers with the Kering Standards for raw materials and manufacturing processes by 2025.
