We are committed to creating meaning and value ___
Since 2012, Gémo has been committed to its CSR approach. We call this progressive approach MIEUX (BETTER). It requires us to be more responsible and more transparent, and Gémo and the ÉRAM Group have taken this on board. There is still a lot to be done and we are working very hard to improve and innovate. We are determined to play our part in meeting the challenges of sustainable development and build the trust of all those in France and overseas who choose us now or in the future.
It is therefore essential to move towards a more ecological business model from the design phase through to end of life. Every employee, whatever their position in the organisation, is a driver for change and progress.

4 founding pillars
We do not want to spread our efforts too thinly. Four priority areas guide what we do and who we work with.
The quality of our products is as important as their affordability. We monitor where our products come from and our partners must respect our demanding requirements. Wherever we manufacture, we have a team in place to ensure that our commitments are met and to support our suppliers on a daily basis.
We are working hard to manage our energy consumption and reduce our waste. We are doing this by empowering our staff and suppliers and by using the most effective technical and technological innovations.
From our stores to our shoe boxes and “pocket bags” being offered automatically at the till, reducing waste at Gémo is everybody's business.
Driven by the humanitarian values of the Éram Group, we are committed to helping educate children, equal opportunities in the workplace and diversity in the areas in which we operate. Giving young people better access to a high-quality education and the work market is the key to their self-fulfilment and to global progress.
Since the start of our Medical Camp project, around 300 people have benefited from a medical check-up.
Fire safety in our suppliers’ production facilities is an important concern. In Bangladesh, we have worked with the fire service to make sure it is properly managed.

Working better together to come up with new ideas and better serve our customers: since 2016, we have been encouraging participatory innovation. At Gémo, every employee is involved in thinking up and running innovative new projects. Ten projects have already been set up since July 2017. They are independently led by employees from different fields who are working together for the first time.
