Louis Vuitton participates in the French department store’s sustainability project “Go for Good.”
Throughout Louis Vuitton’s history, the Maison has strived to create objects that stand the test of time and can be passed down from generation to generation. Louis Vuitton’s participation in Galeries Lafayette's "Go For Good" project reaffirms a long-standing commitment to sustainability. In order to continue to prioritize the longevity of its creations, the Maison is invested in preserving the natural raw materials on which the beauty and quality of its products depend.
Through local, social, and environmental actions, Louis Vuitton carries out this conviction across all its activities and product categories. Louis Vuitton’s leather goods workshops have been certified “Entreprise du Patrimoine Vivante” from the French government, a unique distinction for companies with artisanal savoir-faire that are committed to maintaining production in France. Since its founding in 1854, Louis Vuitton has chosen to use leathers tanned with natural plant extracts for its signature pieces with the aim of minimizing the environmental impacts of each step of production. The Parfums Louis Vuitton Collection, released in 2016, was designed to be endlessly refillable to eliminate the need for additional packaging. The Be Mindful capsule of accessories and textiles gives silk a second life by upcycling them into unique Louis Vuitton creations, while the Maison’s UNICEF partnership donates a portion of sales of the Silver Lockit bracelets to supporting vulnerable children worldwide. These are just some of the initiatives the Maison has taken to further its social and environmental sustainability, earning it a place in the Galeries Lafayette “Go For Good” project.
