Responsible Quality Team

Our cross-functional work group in support of sustainability
Responsible Quality projects are integrated into all levels of organization thanks to a Responsible Quality Team consisting of individuals who represent each corporate division; this inter-disciplinary work group meets periodically to share the state of advancement of projects and propose new initiatives.

Dialogue with stakeholders

We embarked upon an important sharing process with all of our stakeholders, both internal and external: from top management to suppliers, from large-scale retailers to environmental associations. Important stakeholder engagement sessions allowed us to tap into their foremost requests so that we could better define our 2014-2016 plan of action regarding Responsible Quality.
