International Commission

Mission: With creations sold in 180 countries, French luxury is a key element in France’s international influence owing to its dual nature as both a cultural and economic industry.

Club Commission

Mission: The network of businesses and institutions that make up the Comité Colbert constantly engage in quality discussions, thus guaranteeing that their actions are relevant.

The Club Commission aims to strengthen relations between Comité Colbert members and facilitate dialogue by instilling a spirit of conviviality.


Sustainable Development Commission

Mission: The purpose of the Sustainable Development Commission is to make the luxury sector a benchmark in terms of social, societal, and environmental responsibility.

It leads discussions between our Maisons on best practices, and monitors issues that arise in our industry and elsewhere so as to share them.

Craft & creation commission

Mission: Luxury is born of a harmonious blend of know-how and creation. Its future depends on its ability to pass on these two fundamentals to new generations.

The Crafts and Creation Commission is responsible for coordinating this transmission through actions that promote know-how and creation but also through collaboration with training institutions.
