Carrefour values the respect and well-being of all those who are part of its production chains. The commitment to human rights is part of the company’s internal culture and relationship with all suppliers. The chain has a Suppliers’ Social Code and Code of Ethics with stringent clauses that underscore that only those who share the same principles can be Carrefour's trading partners, and the company's commitment to upholding the 10 principles of the UN global pact is included in this material. Through the Act for Food global initiative, the company has further developed the relationship with local producers. In line with the existing dispositions in its contracts, the company rejects any conduct that constitutes slave labour or under conditions different from those provided by law. Carrefour is also a founding member of InPacto, the National Pact Institute for the Eradication of Slave Labour, and emphasizes that it carries out annual audits with the Flavor & Quality protocol suppliers and, in the case of the Carrefour brand, the chain's good practices are ensured by the Global Gap, an international agribusiness certification.
