Corporate Social Responsibility

LE CHÂTEAU fosters a culture of responsibility and accountability. We are committed to contribute to the Canadian market in a positive way through our corporate social responsibility, our commitment to the environment and our charitable programs.

Ethical Sourcing + Environmental Compliance

Fashion today is a global business, with design and manufacturing networks that unite the world. LE CHÂTEAU understands the challenges of operating in a multi-cultural, global community and is committed to ensuring that all suppliers and vendors conform to our ethical standards and responsible business practices.

Fur Free Products

LE CHÂTEAU has a well-established corporate policy concerning fur free and angora free products. We do not use any real fur in our product line and we no longer produce any products using angora. We require that our suppliers adhere to the same policy.

Reducing Our Carbon Footprint & Loving Our Planet

Suppliers must comply with all local laws protecting the environment. LE CHÂTEAU strives to make significant advances in our commitment to environmental responsibility. Our stores are built and renovated with a high percentage of biodegradable and natural materials.  Additionally, LE CHÂTEAU encourages its suppliers to comply with our efforts, minimize waste and maximize recycling.

LE CHÂTEAU’s eCommerce distribution centre which houses approximately 200,000 products is so large that our team uses eco-friendly 3-wheeled bicycles to pick and prepare orders in a highly efficient and environmentally sound manner.

Social Causes & Charitable Programs

LE CHÂTEAU is proud to partner with many local and national charities such as Dress for Success and Avancez avec Style where we assist women and men to experience a transformation in their self-esteem and confidence by providing them with professional, high-quality interview attire. These organizations are well known for the range of programs they offer to get people on the path to security and independence. For many, these organizations are a safe haven and the support offered is essential to their cleints’ well-being.

In addition, LE CHÂTEAU stores offer further community support by donating clothing, footwear and accessories to a wide range of local charities like the Canadian Cancer Society, The Heart & Stroke Foundation, Fées Marraines, Dresses 4 Prom, West Island Women’s ShelterLe ChaînonLa Maison Bleue, as well as those in need at AJOIDans la RueSun Youth and The Old Brewery Mission and the United Way.

LE CHÂTEAU continues to recognize the importance of contributing to the Canadian organizations that strive to make a difference to improve environmental protection within our country, now and in the future.
