The same vision that drives the Group’s business strategy drives our commitment to environmental and social sustainability: empowering imagination.
Kering has defined a number of quantifiable targets for 2016 relating to: raw materials sourcing; paper and packaging; water use, waste and carbon emissions; hazardous chemicals; and evaluating our key suppliers to adhere to our code of conduct.
Our brands embed sustainability through processes and products that have positive social and environmental impact, while staying true to their identity and inherent values.
By 2016 we will have rolled out a group Environmental Profit & Loss (EP&L) account across all of our brands. EP&L places a monetary value on the environmental impacts along the entire supply chain. We are at the forefront of this pioneering initiative.
We have a strong corporate governance for sustainability. From the board of Directors, through a sustainable development committee, and within our brands, through our network of Sustainability Leads.
In total, around 50 individuals are involved in determining and implementing the Group’s sustainability strategy.
