For the Clarins group, fair trade consists in including in its purchases of ingredients or artisanal products a proportion intended to fund social or economic development projects.
The Clarins group financially supports projects to provide technical assistance with production, processing, storage, transport and marketing. It also works to promote access to education, water and health.
In 2015 within the framework of the “fair trade” procurement programme in Madagascar, the Clarins group opened two new classrooms in a secondary school in Bembary. This arrangement allows pupils to enjoy better schooling conditions conducive to concentration and motivation.
The Clarins group chooses its partners according to environmental and social criteria, among other things. Suppliers must comply with the responsible charter implemented by the Clarins group.
