CHANEL was established in Paris 1909 by Mademoiselle Chanel as a luxury brand selling luxury fashion. CHANEL is an independent company that creates, markets, distributes and sells luxury Fragrance & Beauty products, Fashion products (including Haute Couture, Accessories and Eyewear) and Watches & Fine Jewellery. Today, the house of CHANEL operates across 70 countries worldwide.
The CHANEL brand is dedicated to creating innovative and desirable products of the highest quality and finest craftsmanship. It invests in the excellence of its products and favours a long-term vision to ensure its longevity. A large proportion of its products are manufactured at in-house facilities in France as well as with select third party partners. Our supply chain includes the sourcing of raw materials across all three divisions of the CHANEL business, the purchase of components for the products of the three divisions and subcontracting activities for manufacturing operations, as well as the purchase of non-sellables such as packaging, presentation and advertising materials.
CHANEL is strongly committed to conducting its business in compliance with all applicable labour and employment-related laws, rules and regulations of every location in which we do business and across our supply chain, including, but not limited to, laws, rules and regulations relating to wages and hours worked, equal employment opportunity, discrimination, immigration and work authorisation, privacy, collective bargaining, and child prison and forced labour. Our code of conduct Ethics@Chanel, provides the global ethical principles for all CHANEL employees which reflect our core values and qualities.
The Fragrance and Beauty division requires all suppliers to sign up to a Supplier Ethical Charter that specifically calls on partners to comply with all international obligations and principles relating to Human Rights, while also referencing International Labour Organization core conventions governing forced and slave labour. In the Watches and Fine Jewellery division, CHANEL is certified by the Responsible Jewellery Council ("RJC") and complies with the ethical principles of the RJC, including the Kimberley process for diamonds. Our Supplier Ethical Charter is currently being updated following the implementation of Ethics@Chanel and, going forward, all of the suppliers of CHANEL's three divisions will be asked to sign up to this, and, in connection with the audits that are and will be performed on our suppliers, be required to continually improve their processes.
We carefully select our suppliers and business partners and maintain business relationships with those who share our commitment to high ethical standards. CHANEL expects its suppliers and business partners to comply with applicable laws, rules and regulations and our policies relating to the prevention of human rights violations set out above. We have taken the following steps to assess, mitigate and manage any risk that our supply chain may use forced labour, slavery and human trafficking:
- We have started to structure our Supplier Excellence Program (SEP), which includes a defined governance structure and operating model with an implementation plan over the coming years in order to ensure compliance with all applicable laws, rules and regulations and our own internal policies relating to the prevention of human rights violations. This starts with the careful selection with appropriate due diligence of our business partners and the carrying out of a robust risk assessment to determine potential high risk suppliers for all sourcing categories.
- The implementation of our Code of Conduct, Ethics@Chanel throughout our organisation globally requires all CHANEL employees to represent the integrity and ethical standards of CHANEL when dealing with our business partners in general and our suppliers in particular. We have begun training and raising awareness of such issues through Ethics@Chanel training sessions globally.
- The on-going implementation of an Audit Program which includes physical audits to monitor our key suppliers based on their risk profile.
- A gradual roll out of contractual clauses in all of our agreements requiring our suppliers to adhere to all applicable laws, including those on forced and compulsory labour, including the Modern Slavery Act 2015.
In addition, we partner with various reputable organisations on these issues including the World Business Council for Sustainable Development, BSR and the RJC, to provide assurances regarding the robustness of our approach, in particular with regard to the audit standards in order to ensure that it is in line with industry practices.
CHANEL’s commitment to compliance with applicable laws and in particular labour laws and the prohibition of the use of forced labour is an ongoing process. The steps described above form part of a long term programme to tackle all of the risks encountered in our supply chain, including the issue of forced labour. We recognise that the complexity of our global supply chain will require our ongoing commitment to continually monitor and find ways to improve our global supply chain in order to achieve this long term goal.
In addition, as part of our Supplier Excellence Program we are and will be working on:
- traceability for all of our strategic raw materials
- greater collaboration with all of our suppliers and other stakeholders to address issues along the supply chain
- a gradual roll out of global risk assessments for all purchasing categories
- more globally integrated governance of our supply chain risk approach to ensure coherence and consistency
- the global roll out of our supplier audit programme across all three divisions within CHANEL.
Approved by the Board of Directors of Chanel Limited on 27 April 2017 and signed on its behalf by:
Chanel is one of the world's leading designers, developers, manufacturers, and marketers of luxury fragrance and beauty, fashion, watch and fine jewellery products. Chanel is known for its original and sophisticated designs and commitment to quality in everything that it does. Chanel's fragrance and beauty products are sold mainly in high-end department and specialty stores and other carefully selected points of sale operated primarily by third parties. Its fashion, watch and fine jewellery products are sold mostly in Chanel-owned or operated boutiques, but also in a limited number of department stores, watch specialists and fine jewellers. Paying the right amount of taxes, in the right places, at the right times, is core for Chanel and its commitment to being a responsible business.
The following tax strategy is also applicable to the following UK entities: Croydon Logistics Limited and Trochair Limited.
Chanel’s tax strategy is compliance-based; its strategy is to account for tax on an accurate and timely basis and to pay taxes within the due dates. Compliance for Chanel also means disclosing all relevant facts and circumstances to the tax authorities, and claiming reliefs and incentives where available.
When considering the structure of its business activities, Chanel takes into account consideration of the UK’s tax laws when looking to maximise value on a sustainable basis for shareholders. Chanel does not put into place any schemes, arrangements or tax planning that could be perceived as being contrived or artificial in nature. Given the peculiarities of its business and the volume of tax obligations, Chanel is inevitably exposed to tax uncertainties, which Chanel actively seeks to identify, evaluate, monitor and manage. Where there is significant complexity in relation to a tax issue, Chanel seeks external, expert advice.
Chanel is committed to the principles of openness and transparency in its approach to dealing with HMRC, with the objective of minimizing tax uncertainties. Chanel does not take positions on tax matters that may create reputational risk or jeopardise its good standing with the UK tax authority. However, Chanel is, if necessary, prepared to defend its positions where it disagrees with a ruling or decision of a tax authority, having always first sought to resolve the disputed matter through active and transparent discussions.
This document, approved by the Board of Directors of Chanel Limited, Croydon Logistics Limited and Trochair Limited, sets out Chanel’s policy and approach to conducting its tax affairs and dealing with tax risk, and is made available to all of Chanel’s stakeholders. The Finance and Legal teams will periodically review this document and the Board of Directors of Chanel Limited will approve any amendments to it. This tax policy is aligned with “Ethics at Chanel” (Chanel’s Global Code of Conduct). Its publication is regarded as satisfying the statutory obligation under Part 2, Schedule 19, Finance Act 2016.
