To guarantee stability in our business and dynamism in our actions, we also have two major organisational groups which are centred on our historic President, Yves Tirman.

Our commitments

Increase our positive impact and do good around us ... Even on the other side of the world.

  • Average length of employment – 5 years
  • +80 % of Executive Board from internal promotion
  • 50% of COMEX members aged under 45
  • Workforce comprises 60% women

Living well

For over 60 years CMP has been committed to defending purchasing power, by allowing access to the biggest number of people to clever designer products to use all over the house, while still being environmentally-friendly and high-quality, while maintaining the best price point.

Since 2017 CMP has been a member of AMFORI and the Business Social Compliance Initiative (BSCI). In this way we would like to participate more actively and express our commitment as a manufacturer-importer to improve working conditions in the global supply chain.

Environment

CMP takes on the challenge of ecological transition by integrating the notion of responsible purchasing, eco design and management of waste in a continued drive for improvement. In 2021 we launched our “Eco-concept” collection, an integral part of our environmentally-friendly ranges. In the medium term we aim to eliminate plastic in all our packaging.

Since 2017 our outdated computer equipment has been recycled and/or updated by the IBB company which combines an environmentally-friendly approach to connected and sustainable employment for disabled workers.

We have an increased level of vigilance in corporate social responsibility. Also, we have created our own charter and regular audits (social and environmental) in order to check:

  • Our respect for international conventions on labour rights published by the International Labour Organization
  • Our respect for the regulatory obligations concerning accessibility and the rights of disabled people
  • Our respect for regulatory obligations concerning refuse materials
  • Our struggle against waste
