Working towards an SDG roadmap for 2030

The end of the 2019-20 cycle is an opportunity for the company to realign its corporate vision, mission, ambitions and values with the challenges of the next decade.

Indeed, 2030 is the deadline set by the UN in 2015 for achieving the 17 sustainable development goals planned by the 193 member states in 2015. The next ten years will therefore be decisive for the achievement of these SDGs, which represent a series of major challenges for the textile industry (responsible production and consumption, the fight against climate change, conservation of aquatic life and protection of the environment, workplace well-being and the fight against inequality).

    "Nowadays, all businesses, whether large, medium or small, are having to make changes to their activities in order to serve the public interest, which is ultimately in their own interest. The Global Compact France ambassador companies distinguish themselves by their ability to understand the environmental and social issues of our time, and to transform them into economic opportunities. They are also the spearheads of the Global Compact France in their territories, and contribute to building a more sustainable world."

    "Since CSR has been an integral part of purchasing policies, relations between big groups and SMBs have begun to change from customer-supplier relationships into partnerships that allow for co-innovation with a positive environmental, social, and economic impact for the field. Let's raise the bar!"

    “Large companies may outsource up to 80% of their business to other companies, particularly SMEs. For years, their relationships with suppliers were built largely on mistrust and a ‘zero sum’ mentality, driven solely by purchase prices. Nowadays, the role of CSR in influencing larger companies’ procurement decisions has gradually instilled trust in its relationships with SMEs, and not before time!”
