The LVMH Environment Department has worked closely with the Group’s Maisons for 25 years to help them reduce their environmental footprint thanks to a host of initiatives.

Created in 2016, the LIFE in Stores Awards each year recognize the most virtuous and innovative solutions introduced by LVMH Maisons to reduce the environmental footprint of their stores. The awards are now certified by an independent agency. More than simply prizes, the LIFE in Stores Awards provide a template for continuous improvement and a source of inspiration for all LVMH Maisons.

In 2020, seven prizes were awarded to five winners: Louis Vuitton, Florence for Envelope Design (insulation) and Energy Management (geothermal energy); Bvlgari Milan Montenapoleone for Lighting (19 W/m2) and Interior Design (material traceability); Loro Piana Munich for Interior Air Quality; Berluti Paris Saint-Honoré for Maintenance; and Christian Dior for Progress, a special category, after it halved lighting power density in just one year.
