In 2019, we sped up the spread of our commitments internally : by naming professional experts to manage CSR roadmaps under the responsibility of each executive committee member. I have set CSR goals for each of them in order to make it everyone’s responsibility.
Maisons du Monde pursues its commitment alongside the Club Génération Responsable by mobilizing its teams and customers around the "Together for the climate" operation. In June 2019, the operation gathered 15 brands, 15,000 points-of-sale and 150,000 collaborators across the French territory. Together they have raised more than €55,000 in aid of the association « Arbres & Paysages », which represents 5,500 trees planted on French agricultural lands!
I am proud that the Emmaüs Up workshop won the Emmaüs Repurposing Awards . Beyond this contest, it is stimulating to see the pleasure that this workshop brings in everyday life. The members blossom and we have very positive feedbacks from our customers regarding the sale of our objects. Winning this award really is a recognition and an encouragement to continue what we do.
Our field teams support Maisons du Monde and its suppliers for almost 10 years now. They work according to a visionary approach: the company implements tracking tools in order to know the exact origin of the furnitures’ wood. Their customers are then informed in full transparency of the origin and history of products through a QR code system.
The support provided by Maisons du Monde ensures a sustainable business relationship with suppliers. The local support of the company enabled us to implement measures that improve the social and legal compliance of our factory: installation of an effective firefighting system, first-aid training for our employees, provision of PPE kits and explanations on their use and importance…
Mixing with volunteers sent by the NGO Planète Urgence as part of Solidarity Leave® encourages open-mindedness of students in our school: children build confidence and enrich their vocabulary. Parents, who are mostly artisans or farmers, also appreciate these missions of solidarity because they enable them to share their know-how with the volunteers. It is a true cultural exchange.
