DESCRIPTION OF THE INITIATIVE

  • Initiated in compliance with the first commitment to Pernod Ricard's "European Road Safety Charter".
  • All EU affiliates are required to adopt a Code of Conduct, compulsory for all employees and contractors, both during and outside working hours. Each Code is adapted to local requirements and should:
    • Specifically address the issue of drink-driving and provide means to comply with the law (eg. use of a breathalyser, reimbursement of hotel or taxi expenses).
    • Encourage responsible consumption as a principle of behaviour.
    • Provide information on low-risk consumption (in particular, on the basis of relevant guidelines or recommendations made by the local public authorities and by WHO).
    • Mention the sanctions in case of non-compliance with the code of conduct.
    • Offer assistance and information on possible counselling or medical care available to employees having difficulties in controlling their alcohol consumption.

IMPACT

  • In 2014, 96% of affiliates had an alcohol policy for employees.
  • Pernod Ricard has 10,000 employees EU wide.
