CEPOVETT accelerates its international development
CEPOVETT promotes French know-how by relying on the reputation of its Lafont brand.
The group accelerates its international development by opening its own subsidiaries in Canada, Great Britain, Germany, Belgium, the Netherlands and Dubai. It will also develop partnerships with the Gulf countries. Already present worldwide through its international customers (Air France, Accor, Nespresso, etc.) which it delivers to 180 countries, CEPOVETT thus reduces its dependence on its historical market and extends its logic of sharing values and know-how to its international partners. As a pioneering French showcase for sustainable workwear, the CEPOVETT group participates in the dissemination of textile excellence, embodied by the emblematic pieces of its various collections. In addition to the high quality and innovative products, CEPOVETT provides its customers with advice, services and support in their activities, specific to the needs of each market.
CEPOVETT participates in the " SDG AMBITION ACCELERATOR " program
In order to reach the objectives set for 2030, the UN has decided to support companies in the implementation of concrete actions.
In 2021, CEPOVETT has been selected to be part of the international "SDG Ambition Accelerator" program, a series of workshops developed by the United Nations Global Compact, in conjunction with Accenture and SAP. As a member of the Global Compact, CEPOVETT has distinguished itself both by the integration of the SDGs in its CSR approach and by its progress on these subjects. Initiated in 2020, this program, in a 100%, digital format, aims to prioritize actions that will accelerate business contributions to the SDGs as well as set more ambitious SDG targets based on the best standards. At the end of this 6-month training, a skills assessment will be conducted. This reading grid enriched with CSR issues will constitute a future reference for CEPOVETT.
Towards a road map of the 2030 SDGs
This end of cycle 2019-20 is an opportunity for the company to realign its corporate vision, mission, ambition and values with the challenges of the next decade. 2030 is, in fact, the horizon set by the UN in 2015 to achieve the 17 sustainable development goals that the 193 member states programmed 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, fight against climate change, preservation of aquatic life and environmental protection, well-being at work and fight against inequalities).
CEPOVETT's 2020-2025 progress plan has been aligned with that of the SDGs -and all our energy focused on SDG 12- so that the company integrates the universal agenda of this global program in its roadmap.
