As part of a strategy to improve transparency and ethics in its business practices, Rémy Cointreau now specifically requests its suppliers to subscribe to SEDEX.
In 2016/2017, the percentage of suppliers identified as strategic and subscribing to SEDEX (excluding sub-contractors, the use of which is very limited and concerns primarily activities in France), increased from 54% to nearly 83%**. The target for 2018 is to reach 90%. SEDEX also has an agreement with the CDP (Carbon Disclosure Project), a non-profit organization aimed at assessing the climate change impact of the main global companies listed on the Stock Exchange.
