The great majority of indicators for the other Rémy Cointreau brands are continuing their downward trend, since the Group made carbon emission reductions one of the priority targets of its CSR policy. The decision this year to expand the scope of measures to level 3—covering 90% of the Group’s business—is significant in this regard, and meets the new legal requirements related to the energy transition.
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.
As for the 2017/2018 financial year, the Group’s executive managers will see a portion of their variable remuneration indexed to CSR targets.
