Vuitton is a luxury fashion and leather goods brand with a rich history. It is owned by French mega-company LVMH. The group is committed to making a positive impact on the environment and society. They have pledged to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 55 percent in 2030.
Vuitton also aims to use 100 percent renewable energy at its production sites and use responsibly sourced raw materials. It has also committed to recycling all window materials and event materials by 2025.
While the luxury brand doesn’t disclose its carbon footprint, its executives say it has already reduced its use of hazardous chemicals. For example, the company has eliminated pallet wrap in its supply chain. Instead of using a single-use plastic wrap, it uses reusable straps.
Louis Vuitton’s Felt Line capsule collection of bags features recycled wool-based jacquard, organic cotton, and recycled polyester. It also includes tufted Lurex thread and recycled plastic.
As a part of their commitment to sustainability, Louis Vuitton recently introduced the Upcycling Signal Logo, which marks items with at least 50% recycled content. In a partnership between CDP and the UN Global Compact, this initiative enables companies to measure their environmental performance.
This spring, the company invited some of its top clients to preorder its fall 2022 collection. These clients helped the company to set science-based goals that will be used to measure progress over the next two years.
To measure its environmental performance, Louis Vuitton relies on a data-driven approach. The Higg Environmental module allows the company to calculate its ecological performance.
