SOLIDARITY AT CARREFOUR
For Carrefour, being involved in solidarity means helping people every day in the countries in which the Group
operates. Drawing on its profession as a retailer and its knowledge of local conditions, Carrefour provides
support for people of all social backgrounds and works with non-profit organisations to address a highly diverse range of issues at local, national and international levels.
Open to the world, one of Carrefour’s missions is to strengthen ties between populations by supporting the development of people and communities in need and their integration. To that end, Carrefour is involved in food programmes supported by the Carrefour Foundation, through sponsorship projects conducted at country level and through the solidarity initiatives deployed by its stores and warehouses. In fact, it is the sum of the solidarity actions conducted by Carrefour day in day out that delineates its active commitment to society at large.
A shared commitment Being involved in solidarity is everyone’s concern
In addition to the operational commitment and financial support provided by the company, Carrefour encourages the ongoing involvement of its employees, stores, warehouses and head offi ces, all of which engage in solidarity actions on a daily basis. Employees and customers are at the heart of the community involvement conduc- ted by Carrefour.

KEY ACTORS OF SOLIDARITY AT CARREFOUR
nd y, nt ad ns at c-
Promoting social inclusion: a main priority Working with associations
Carrefour offers its multi-local retailing expertise and the skills of its employees to associations, par- ticularly to promote the social and vocational reinte- gration of the chronically unemployed. The Group is also actively involved in the fi ght against exclusion through community food actions.
Transmission of skills Sharing know-how
Carrefour encourages the sharing and transmis- sion of know-how by its employees, particularly by promoting food trades and supporting voca- tional integration.
The Carrefour Foundation serves as a support for solidarity actions and has a mission of general interest. It is active on an international scale on two main fronts: food solidarity and emergency aid.
FOUNDATIONS AND SOLIDARITY TEAMS OF THE
In all its countries, Carrefour mobilises its resources to deploy and coordinate solidarity projects that meet the needs of local communities.
STORES AND WAREHOUSES
Stores and warehouses, which are in direct contact with customers, non-profi t organisations and local authorities, make a major contribution to the realisation and setting-up of solidarity actions, through the donation of products and valuable fi nancial and logistical support.
The women and men of Carrefour personify solidarity. Each day, the mobilisation of Carrefour’s teams ensures the consistency, eff ectiveness and success of the undertaken solidarity actions.
Continuous support for local associations Working in partnership with community stakeholders
Carrefour engages in outreach projects with the support of its stores rooted in the local commu- nity by relying on non-profit organisations that work directly with people in need.

food and non-food donation campaigns and collection
drives, on local, national and international scales. The collected consumer goods are then given to associations that redistribute
them to their beneficiaries.

Food Bank collection campaigns International. In 2013, Carrefour, which lends i ts suppor t to the European Federation of Food Banks (FEBA) and the Global FoodBanking Network (G FN) , o rgan i sed a ma jo r collection campaign in eight European and South American countries in which the Group operates. Over 2,200 stores and 470 Carrefour volunteers in France, Italy, Brazil, Argentina, Poland, Romania, Belgium and Spain, participated in the food collection from customers. This campaign is part of a long-standing partnership wi th Food Banks , of which Carrefour is one of the largest daily contributors in many countries, as well as being their historical partner in the mass retail sector.
During the campaign, the generosity of Carrefour customers enabled the collection of the equivalent of over 9 million meals.
“Operación kilo” Spain. Thanks to a partnership b e t w e e n t h e F u n d a c i ó n Solidaridad Carrefour and the FESBAL (Spanish federation of Food Banks) to collect food products donated by Carrefour hypermarket customers, the teams of Carrefour Spain have deployed this initiative every year since 2001 for the benefit of those in greatest need. For each kilo given by a customer, Carrefour donates an additional kilo. Local Food Banks then divide the food products up among their various partner organisations, which, in turn, redistribute these goods to the underprivileged.
The three campaigns organised in 2013 resulted in the collection of 3,500,000 kilos of food products (half donated by customers and the other half by Carrefour).
Collection of school bags France and Spain. Before the beginning of each school year, Carrefour stores organise a nationwide collection of student backpacks, school bags and school supplies. In France, parents and children wishing to participate can deposit backpacks or school bags in good condition in their store, in exchange for a voucher on purchases; these bags are then given to the Emmaüs-Le Relais association. In Spain, school sup- plies received from customers are matched by the company, bene- fiting more than 25,000 children accompanied by the Red Cross. In 2013, 120,000 school bags and backpacks were delivered to Emmaüs in France and nearly €490,000 in school supplies to the Spanish Red Cross.
