“We must address the changes that are impacting our world with a resolute spirit of progress, making certain that our approaches are consistently aligned with the long-term vision that characterizes our Group. LVMH is forging its own distinctive path, guided by two principles: sustainability and respect for nature,” writes Bernard Arnault, LVMH Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, in the introduction to the 2018 Environmental Report.
LVMH has posted an interactive version of its 2018 Environmental Report, enriched with graphics, animations and videos that showcase the Group’s daily commitments to the environment and continuous progress towards achieving its 2020 objectives.
The cover of the report, featuring a 2018 photo entitled Hidden in the Vineyards with the Chef de Cave by Chinese artist Liu Bolin for Maison Ruinart, underlines the LVMH Group’s environmental ambition to tend towards perfect harmony between its activities and nature.

The LVMH 2018 Environmental Report illustrates the dynamic behind the four priority areas covered by the LIFE 2020 initiative – products, sourcing, sites and a reduction in greenhouse gas emissions – using an infographic that shows the nine objectives of the program, ranging from eco-design of products and after-sales services to the transport of raw materials, production and marketing. LVMH strengthened its environmental commitments in 2012 with the creation of a comprehensive program called LIFE – LVMH Initiatives For the Environment. All LVMH Maisons have integrated this comprehensive program in their strategic planning since 2015.
Each chapter in the report – products, sectors, CO2 and sites – is introduced by an animated infographic that illustrates progress to date and efforts remaining in order to achieve LVMH’s goals. The interactive 2018 Environmental Report also spotlights emblematic Groupwide initiatives – such as the creation of a new standard of excellence for supply of crocodilian leather – as well as first person accounts from people leading projects at different LVMH Maisons (detailing the importance of the Group’s internal carbon fund, for example).
To share even more detailed information, the interactive 2018 Environmental Report contains appendices with infographics showing trends in the Group’s energy and water consumption, greenhouse gas emissions and waste and packaging production.
