Gucci continues to demonstrate its dedication to combatting climate change by embarking on new planet-saving projects as part of its Natural Climate Solutions Portfolio. Last year, Gucci made its supply chain completely carbon neutral and vowed to reduce its emissions by 50 per cent by 2025. The new Natural Climate Solutions Portfolio outlines further initiatives to protect forests, agriculture and biodiversity.
In addition to translating its emissions into the conservation of nature, Gucci has invested in several Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation (REDD+) projects that are focused on protecting vital ecosystems. One such project has led to the protection of 1,195,000 hectares of forests and biodiversity across the Kenyan Chyulu Hills and Zimbabwe.
Gucci is also protecting and restoring mangroves in Honduras; funding regenerative projects for wool and leather; advising woolgrowers to adopt best practices in animal welfare; and advocating for more sustainable agricultural practices.

Gucci has gone beyond its own supply chain to do their part for our eco-system. Speaking on the Natural Climate Solutions Portfolio, Gucci’s President and CEO Marco Bizzarri said, “We want to be part of the solution for nature and climate by mainstreaming practices and systems that will transform nature from being a victim of climate to becoming an actor to change climate, which will ultimately determine the future of our planet.”
