Company's comments
In 2019, as part of the declaration of our ambitions for 2023, Groupe SEB committed to a very ambitious objective of integrating at least 50% recycled materials (and no longer just plastic) in new products and packaging by 2023 for all of the group’s countries. To date, this rate has reached 34%. The French success will serve as an example to gradually ramp up in the group’s other countries and achieve the objectives that the group knows to be ambitious and priorities in its responsible and sustainable approach.
