Relations with our business partners
Continuous growth at Cirque du Soleil has led to a proliferation of partnerships in ever more complex socio-economic and geopolitical contexts. With this in mind, the company must adapt to constantly changing realities in order to continue to act as a responsible citizen.
To accomplish this, since the end of 2007, Cirque du Soleil has included a new clause regarding social responsibility in its partnership agreements. This clause covers a range of social responsibility issues such as employee relations and working conditions, ethical sourcing, environmental protection and social and cultural action in the community. The purpose of this clause is first and foremost to clarify, respectfully but firmly, the values behind Cirque du Soleil when we engage in serious dialogue with partners, and to seek to create or adopt the best practices in the industry.
