On the occasion of the 10th New Retail Forum, numerous members of the durable development movement and organised commerce convened in Paris to witness the Retail & CSR trophies awarded by the Responsible Generation Club.
Among the companies receiving awards for their initiatives and continuous improvement in the field of sustainable development are Franprix, Okaïdi, Sephora, Norauto, Les Mousquetaires Group as well as… Maisons du Monde.
Triple prize for Maisons du Monde
This year, Maisons du Monde received the 1st prize for its commitment to a global CSR initiative. This prize rewards our team’s work on our responsible range, our environmental performance, the CSR network’s actions in headquarters and in store, as well as all other functions, in transforming the company!
Two other R-Awards also reward our commitment to sustainable development:
- The « Social action» prize, for our partnership with Emmaüs France, to which we donate customer returns which cannot be repaired or put back in stock and which Emmaüs can repair. Our sofas, for example, are donated to Emmaüs Défi and resold at a lesser price to people who gain access for the first time to long-term lodgings.
- The « Climate initiative » prize for our ambitions with respect to climate change, validated by the Science Based Targets initiative. By 2030, we have committed to reduce by 50% the greenhouse gases emitted by our stores and warehouses, and by 15% the emissions related to our products, their transportation and our customer transportation.
