Consistent with its continued commitment towards sustainable development, Moncler has presented a wide-reaching plan that further integrates social and environmental responsibility into its business model, focusing on five strategic drivers: climate action, circular economy, fair sourcing, enhancing diversity and giving back to local communities.
The Moncler Born to Protect Sustainability Plan extends this founding purpose of protection to people and to our planet, tackling some of the most pressing challenges facing the world.
“The world is facing ever more urgent social and environmental challenges,” says Remo Ruffini, Chairman and CEO of Moncler. “The pandemic is a reminder that we can, we must, always go beyond what we have already achieved if we are to make our future better. To rise to these great challenges, as individuals, as organizations and as companies, we must mobilize extraordinary energies. The kind that can only be generated by engaging people around common goals. We must welcome new ways of thinking and working, and find innovative solutions in new places. At Moncler, we will embrace these challenges with humility and with ambition, searching and improving, in the knowledge that even small steps can lead to great results. Moncler Born to Protect is the renewal of our continued commitment to protect today and tomorrow for all.”
The Moncler Sustainability Plan introduces precise goals for the company to meet. These include reducing its environmental impact by becoming carbon neutral, the recycling of fabric scraps and the use of sustainable nylon as well as the elimination of single-use plastics. In another important step toward a more circular economy, Moncler will start recycling DIST-certified down through an innovative mechanical process that requires 70% less water compared to traditional down recycling processes.
The Sustainability Plan also targets the traceability of raw materials and the continuous improvement of social and environmental standards throughout the supply chain through close collaboration with our business partners. Moreover, the plan encompasses dedicated internal and external awareness-raising initiatives aimed at fostering and enhancing diversity while promoting an ever more inclusive culture.
Moncler is further committed to supporting local communities through impactful social projects and to protecting 100,000 of the most vulnerable children and families from the cold.
