France will host COP21, the 21st United Nations Climate Change Conference, from November 30 to December 11, 2015. LVMH Environment Director Sylvie Bénard discusses the challenges to be addressed by the meeting, of which LVMH is a partner, as well as the Group’s commitment to fighting global warming.
The world’s eyes will be on Paris during COP21 as participants seek a consensus on concrete measures to combat climate change. The goal is to reach a universal agreement, one that is concluded by all participants and binding in all countries, and at the same time flexible to take into account specific contexts in different countries. The agreement must be sustainable and dynamic, focused on a long-term objective of keeping global warming to below 2°C and encouraging more active measures to prevent climate change.
After the failure of climate talks in Copenhagen in 2009, COP21 is a critical juncture. Sylvie Bénard, the Environment Director of LVMH, spotlights the challenges for the conference, which the LVMH Group has joined as official partner.
Throughout COP21, LVMH invites you to discover some of the initiatives taken by the Group to help fight climate change, as well as insights from the heads of our Houses.
