An EP&L provides a comprehensive and clear understanding of Group and House activities. It sheds light on areas in which Kering can implement solutions to significantly reduce its environmental impact, whether in its supply chains, production processes or sourcing of raw materials. The EP&L is applied in three stages:
Better understanding of main impacts and translating this into monetary terms is a means to evaluate locations, materials, processes, products and technologies.
By highlighting environmental challenges and opportunities, the EP&L helps to draft guidelines, measurable policies and targets to improve raw material sourcing.
The commitment of main suppliers (from raw material producers to product assemblers) reinforces and ensures long-term collaboration to overcome environmental challenges.
The EP&L fosters dialogue with Group stakeholders to share best practices and establish a mutual understanding of priorities.
A simple presentation of environmental impacts creates a broader understanding within the Group. The EP&L helps address drivers of change in Kering's supply chains and specifically around fluctuations in raw material quality and availability. It also provides a clear basis to assess the performance of Kering’s environmental projects and investments.
