The LVMH group has always been strongly committed to exemplary integrity and ethics in the conduct of its business and in its relations with all stakeholders. Rules of conduct, principles and guidelines governing ethics and environmental and social responsibility have been defined to establish the behavior required of the Group’s executives and employees, as well as our suppliers and partners.
LVMH CODE OF CONDUCT
The LVMH Code of Conduct is a cornerstone of our ethics and compliance policy. It constitutes a common ethical framework for the Group and its Maisons, bringing together the rules that each employee must follow in the performance of their duties:
- acting responsibly and with social awareness;
- providing a fulfilling work environment and valuing talents;
- commitment to protect the environment;
- winning the trust of customers;
- winning the confidence of shareholders;
- acting with and commitment to integrity in the conduct of business.
The Code has been translated into more than 10 languages and is widely disseminated across the Group.
SUPPLIERS CODE OF CONDUCT
The LVMH group attaches great importance to ensuring that its Maisons and their partners share a set of common rules, practices and principles with respect to ethics, social responsibility and protection of the environment.
Each LVMH Group Maison therefore requires its suppliers to respect the ethical principles presented in the Supplier Code of Conduct and to ensure that their own suppliers and subcontractors do the same in the conduct of their activities for the Group.
LVMH ALERT LINE
LVMH encourages open communication and dialogue within the Group and with its external partners and clients (“stakeholders”): that’s why the Group created the LVMH Alert Line, an online interface that provides a fully confidential and secure way of reporting in good faith violations of the laws, regulations, or principles of internal conduct.
