LVMH teams up with the European Commission for Green Week 2012

LVMH is partnering with the European Commission to promote best environmental behaviours in the framework of Green Week 2012.

LVMH has launched its own internal Green Week in parallel with the one organised by the Commission, with the aim to encourage its more than 90,000 employees to adopt state-of-the-art environmental practices.

Speaking on the eve of the opening of Green Week 2012, Environment Commissioner Janez Potočnik said: "Private sector initiatives are crucial if we are to make real progress in improving our environment. I am pleased to see LVMH encouraging environmental best practices among its employees and hope other companies will take note and follow suit."

LVMH is committed to raising environment awareness through the promotion of best practices in various sectors. This year, LVMH is focusing on techniques to reduce its footprint in water-intensive sectors, including vineyards, cosmetics and perfumes.

An environmentally sound approach is closely linked to LVMH’s values and businesses. LVMH is a European cultural and creative entrepreneur. Based on art, culture and creativity, LVMH’s business model is underpinned by continuous innovation, a relentless focus on quality, and investment in highly skilled manufacturing in Europe. The Group constantly strives for the highest quality in all it does, from the products and services all the way to the experience offered to consumers.
