Kering 27/100

(EPA:KER) 17 of 20 (2016)

Kering SA (Kering) ranks 17th in the benchmark, with a below-average score of 27 out of 100. While Kering's sports brand, Puma, discloses a number of leading practices (for example, it is the only company that discloses the names and locations of its core first-, second-, and third-tier suppliers), those practices mostly do not extend to Kering's luxury brands, which include Alexander McQueen, Brioni, Gucci, and Stella McCartney. That said, the company has a number of group-wide policies in place, such as a supplier code of conduct and a traceability process. Kering can improve its performance across all themes, for example in areas such as commitment and governance, traceability and risk assessment, and purchasing practices.

METHODOLOGY

45

The average score for the sector was 37/100 compared to 49/100 in 2016. The number of companies assessed in 2018 increased from 20 to 43. Since 2016, the methodology has been strengthened, making it more difficult for companies to achieve the same score. The 19 companies benchmarked in both 2016 and 2018 saw their average score increase from 49/100 to 56/100, which is significant given the changes to the methodology.
