In a rapidly changing environment, Sacem's model and missions are more effective and relevant than ever to support creation in all its diversity. Sacem is committed to generating ever more value for its members, maximising their revenues and guaranteeing them a high level of service and support.
This is an unprecedented period. The two years of crisis linked to Covid-19 have hit cultural life hard, affecting authors’ rights collections and aggravating creators’ and publishers’ difficulties. At the same time, this crisis has accelerated some of the changes that were already at work. The digital explosion is generating profound changes in the way works are exploited, consumed and created.
In this context, Sacem is transforming, reinventing itself and seizing today's challenges as opportunities for tomorrow.

Sacem's members form a mosaic of professions, aesthetics and very diverse profiles. From their first self-production project to training and professional support, or the mutual aid programme that secures the end of their career, Sacem is present at every moment.
As an engaged society, Sacem has forged its destiny in the struggles for the rights of authors, composers and publishers. Solidarity, collective action and equal opportunity are at the heart of the values that guide Sacem’s initiatives.
In the context of an unprecedented crisis that brought the cultural scene to a standstill for a long time, Sacem doubled down on its support and guidance for its members’ and partners’ projects in the cultural sector. Every day, it prepares the ground for tomorrow's creations.
Today, members can do everything online quickly, with access to increasingly precise and transparent information on the exploitation of their works and their royalty distributions.
Securing the best rates for our members, developing ever more efficient tools, increasing our market share and developing our fields of expertise. These are the missions that we carry out with drive and determination.
