CHANEL, a privately owned company for more than 100 years, has traditionally been very discreet about its business. We have principally devoted our communications to showcasing our products and their creators, a discretion which has contributed to a sense of mystique around the brand.
Today, however, all stakeholders expect greater transparency and accountability from companies. We want to share in more detail how CHANEL operates, the commitments we have made as a company, and how we collaborate with civil society, with external stakeholders, and with other brands on sustainability issues.
This report is a first insight into who we are and how we operate. It is a platform for a different kind of engagement, both internally — with our employees —and externally, with our stakeholders.
