OUR CSR STRATEGY (Corporate Social Responsability)

Embracing the key challenges of CSR, and inspired by the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) defined by the United Nations, the RÉMY COINTREAU group is committed to a policy that affects all aspects of its business:

  • preservation of its terroirs (sustainable growing methods, preserving the specific characteristics of terroirs, etc.),
  • developing the talents of its 1,900 employees (promoting well-being at work, gender equality, non-discrimination, sustainable procurement, etc.)
  • respect for the weather (combatting global warming, preservation of resources, etc.).

For the past decade, Rémy Cointreau has worked to reduce its environmental impact and especially its carbon footprint. The group releases 0.5 kg of CO2 for each euro of its operating profit, compared with an average of 4.5 kg for the global beverage and food industry.

Even so, it wants to strengthen its commitment to reducing its carbon imprint by 50% per bottle by 2030 and to reach “net zero emissions” by 2050. Packaging are an important lever for reducing for the group, because they account 35% of its total carbon imprint.

In this context, at the end of 2021, the RÉMY COINTREAU GASTRONOMIE department took a significant step forward in terms of innovation and respect for the environment by replacing its cap and pilfer-proof band with a cap without band, recyclable, and its current PET bottle with an R-PET version:

100% recycled, 100% recyclable.

A decisive development in terms of reducing the consumption of raw materials on packaging and reducing the carbon footprint of our bottles because the total weight decreases from 76 g to 50 g, which reduces by 30 tonnes the carbon imprint of the new bottle.
