Our environmental commitments come to life within our Maisons. In order of appearance, discover a selection of initiatives which gear towards environmental excellence: For the last decade, bees and their future have been at the heart of @Guerlain’s sustainable development program. This year, Guerlain partners with @UNESCO to lead a 5-year program designed to train new beekeepers, create beekeeping affiliates across the world and measure the benefits of pollination in biosphere reserves. Guerlain is also a proud partner of world-renowned photographer and ecologist @YannArthusBertrand’s @fondationgoodplanet to raise awareness among younger generations about protecting bees. @MoetHennessy and its Maisons also celebrate biodiversity, which keeps the Soils alive, and is the foundation of their commitment to the Living Soils. For example, @veuveclicquot plants the vineyard with grass and experiments with the introduction of cover crops growing between the vines. This plant diversity promotes soil health. At @CapeMentelle in Western Australia, nearly 1,000 sheep graze in the vineyards from winter to spring. This ancestral practice controls grass height naturally, removing the need for herbicide or weeding tractors, the weight of which compacts soils and threatens the life within.

#BiodiversityDay x #LVMH Speaking at a round table organized by @unesco for International Day for Biological Diversity, LVMH Environmental Director Hélène Valade said: “Both our planet’s and humans’ health are linked. The Covid-19 crisis shows us that we must continue to strengthen our actions in favor of the environment even more.” This crisis underscores the importance of key issues such as environmental accounting. This is why, as the economy recovery begins, LVMH is set on affirming and accelerating its vision of sustainable and virtuous growth. LVMH takes action each day to carry out tangible progress, whether it’s by achieving its goal of a 25% reduction in C02 emissions between 2012 and 2020 or with the strengthening of its partnership with UNESCO in 2019 to support the Man and Biosphere (MAB) program. This ambitious project aims to safeguard biodiversity across the planet thanks to international cooperation. Find Unesco’s Biodiversity Day panels on their website.
