24.03.2017, Luxembourg, RTL Group
On 21 March 2017, RTL Group signed the Diversity Charter Lëtzebuerg to express its commitment to promoting diversity by concrete actions that go beyond legal and regulatory non-discrimination obligations.
Guillaume de Posch, Co-CEO of RTL Group, has signed the Diversity Charter Lëtzebuerg for RTL Group. Oliver Fahlbusch, Executive Vice President Corporate Communications & Marketing and Chairman Corporate Responsibility at RTL Group, attended the official signing ceremony on 21 March 2017. Anke Schäferkordt, Co-CEO of RTL Group and CEO of Mediengruppe RTL Deutschland, signed the German version of the Diversity Charter back in December 2007.
Oliver Fahlbusch said: “After the publication of our Diversity Statement in 2016, signing the Diversity Charter Lëtzebuerg represents the next logical step in demonstrating RTL Group’s strong commitment to diversity in our people, our content and our businesses. More than 150 signatories of the Diversity Charter in Luxembourg send a clear signal: in a country as diverse as Luxembourg, promoting pluralism, respect and equal opportunity is a pre-condition for sustainable business success.”
Created in 2012, the Diversity Charter Lëtzebuerg is an initiative by private and public companies, associations and administrations grouped within IMS Luxembourg (Inspiring More Sustainability).
Signing the Diversity Charter Lëtzebuerg means:
By signing the Charter, RTL Group declared it aims to achieve this ambition in the context of six points: raising awareness, defining a diversity policy, applying the principles of equal opportunities and promotion of diversity, evaluating these practices, communicating them to all stakeholders of the companies, and encouraging all of these partners to work in favour of non-discrimination.
