Louis Vuitton Environmental Commitment
“Great design, sustainability, and a great business do go hand in hand,” says Michael Burke, Chairman & CEO of Louis Vuitton.
Savoir-faire and innovation are two of Louis Vuitton’s core values. The House is compelled to respect that which is the source of excellence of Louis Vuitton products: our shared natural resources. “Great design, sustainability, and a great business do go hand in hand,” says Michael Burke, Chairman & CEO of Louis Vuitton.
As part of the LVMH Group, Louis Vuitton’s commitment is underpinned by LVMH’s Initiatives for The Environment (LIFE), which set goals to accelerate environmental progress across the entire value chain to be achieved by 2020.
Since first pioneering the Carbon Footprint© in 2004, Louis Vuitton has achieved tangible progress in efficiently managing its CO2 impacts. Priority areas include energy-use in corporate buildings and stores, the transport of products, the preservation and traceability of resources, supplier’s environmental practices, and the reduction of production waste. Today, driven by its ISO14001 certification, the House continues to prioritize these goals.
