Kering commits to be full carbon neutral from 2018


Kering commits to full carbon neutrality and will become carbon neutral within its own operations and across the entire supply chain, from 2018(*): this announce is the next step in its long-term commitment to sustainability.


From 2011, Kering has settled the EP&L(**) to measure carbon emissions, water consumption, air and water pollution, land use, and waste production within the Group’s own operations and across the entire supply chain in order to calculate the social cost in relation to these impacts.

A interactiv digital platform, showcases the group's new, interactive 2018 Group EP&L report and provides access to unprecedented open data with an aim to support luxury and fashion players with information and insight into the complexities of their own environmental impacts. Coinciding with the announcement today, Gucci has also launched a dedicated version of the digital EP&L accessible on Gucci Equilibrium. 

On last August 23rd, Kering with 32 leading companies from the fashion and textile industry have given themselves a set of shared objectives in the form of a "Fashion Pact", to strongly commit on climate, biodiversity and oceans, which has been presented to heads of state during the G7 meeting at Biarritz, from 24 to 26 August.

On September 12th, Gucci has announced its full carbon neutrality. Today, the entire luxury group will offset 100% of its annual Greenhouse Gas, either its direct emissions from owned or controlled sources, but also  indirect emissions from the generation of purchased energy or others. Kering will collaborate with peers to support efforts and solutions that can help decarbonize the fashion industry through the "Fashion Pact".
