Groupe SEB awarded the CSR Grand Prix organized by ESSEC Business School
On March 6, Groupe SEB was declared winner of the 2015 ESSEC Business School CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) Grand Prix of the Responsible Consumer Industries, launched by the ESSEC Consumer Products Chair.
Groupe SEB was contending with about twenty other companies in four categories: improving everyday life for consumers, civic responsibility, resource management and eco-designed products. It was nominated in the first three categories and won first prize for resource management.
In this category, it was an extremely innovative experiment in kitchenware recycling which swung the balance in favor of Groupe SEB. The Group’s efforts were lauded not just for this French project but also for similar initiatives deployed in countries such as the Netherlands, Finland and Thailand.
