Respecting, passing on, supporting and empowering. It was around these
four pillars that we structured the LVMH social responsibility policy. They are
underpinned by the belief that it is through people whether those employed by
the Group or those with whom it works that we make a difference.
The engagement and pride of belonging to the LVMH community is plainly reflected in the virtuosity of our artisans, the passion of our sales advisors and the agility of
all our teams. It is our duty and ambition to provide employees with an inclusive
working environment where everyone feels safe, able to be themselves and grow.
Because LVMH has a responsibility to set a strong example, the Group is committed
to combating all forms of discrimination. In 2019, we signed the United Nations
Standards of Conduct for Business on tackling discrimination against Lesbian, Gay,
Bi, Trans, and Intersex (LGBTI) people.
As a major group, we also have a responsibility to stay in touch with the world
around us. We do this, for example, by supporting the younger generations through
training in our Institut des Métiers d Excellence, and people experiencing long-term
unemployment through LIVE - L Institut des Vocations pour l Emploi, which was
inaugurated this year.
The LVMH Group is working throughout the world by investing resources and
harnessing skills to slow the spread of Covid-19, assisting those involved on the front
line against the virus. The entire Group has taken action to support our employees,
maintain business continuity and aid the recovery. I applaud the efforts made by
all our employees and would like to thank them for their unwavering commitment,
hard work and community spirit.
