“Our group’s corporate social responsibility policy has been consistently ambitious for the past 15 years, particularly in the areas of diversity and inclusion, gender equality and disability,” LVMH chairman and chief executive, Bernard Arnault said.
“The success of a company is not only measured by its financial results but also by its contribution to society and the support it’s able to provide to its employees, wherever they are in the world.
“Commitment is one of our core values, and the launch of the LVMH Heart Fund is yet another example.”
