Steering Committee - Sustainable Development

  • Chairman
    Joël Tronchon
    Vice President Sustainable Development

In 2004, Groupe SEB set up a Sustainable Development Department in order to standardise, orientate and give impetus to a collective, participatory process in this area. A Sustainable Development Steering Committee was set up in 2005 to create genuine in-house momentum.


A cross-sector approach

The steering committee’s members represent the Group’s main business units. Their role is both to make proposals and to serve as sustainable development "ambassadors" to the Group’s external teams and partners.


Action plan over the next 3 years

Working with the different business units/departments of the Group allows the development of a document about the achievements and objectives regarding sustainable matters.
