Carrefour supports the 17 Sustainable Development Goals

Carrefour supports the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) that were set by the United Nations at its conference in Rio de Janeiro to meet the urgent environmental, political and economic challenges facing the world. Carrefour adheres in particular to seven priority SDGs to which it contributes by means of its various CSR policies and its food transition for all strategy. The Group’s objectives, particularly those associated with its CSR and Food Transition Index, are aligned with these priority SDGs.
