We support corporate social responsibility

A key challenge for companies and society

For several years, the Chamber of Commerce has been actively involved in promoting sustainable development at all levels of society.

In its CC2025 Strategy, the Chamber of Commerce reaffirms its commitment to sustainable development, and pledges to supporting business in adopting resilient, environmentally friendly practices that deliver positive impact. Additionally, the Chamber of Commerce aims to be an exemplary institution by implementing its own sustainability recommendations, thereby addressing the needs of both its member companies and society at large.

In 2007, the Chamber of Commerce was a founding member of the National Institute for Sustainable Development and Corporate Social Responsibility (INDR). In 2023, the Chamber of Commerce launched the House of Sustainability in partnership with the Chambre des Métiers and the INDR, aiming to accelerate and facilitate the sustainable transition of businesses.
