Corporate Social Responsibility is one of Gucci’s core values and is at the base of the brand’s identity. We recognise that the philosophy of ‘Sustainable Value’ is at the heart of our management policies and our corporate conduct, which means that we have implemented a process to integrate social, environmental, ethical, human rights and consumer concerns into our business operations.
Our business model is designed to provide our customers with the highest quality products, which are made in Italy in a responsible manner.
Together we are committed to raising awareness and creating a culture of responsiveness within the Gucci system - employees, shareholders, customers, suppliers, subcontractors, commercial and financial partners, local communities, institutions, trade associations, trade unions – by promoting a Social and Environmental Responsibility Policy that values the following aspects:
Respect for human rights
Respect for workers’ rights and equal opportunities
Respect for and protection of workers’ health and safety
Respect for and enhancement of professional skills
Valuing diversity (culture, gender, disability)
Cooperation and solidarity promotion
Respect for and protection of the environment and biodiversity
Respect for stakeholders
Gucci is therefore committed to implementing a Social and Environmental Responsibility Management System that goes ‘beyond compliance’ with the law. This involves the adoption of the most important international standards, policies and procedures for the effective implementation, monitoring and continual improvement of the principles of the CSR Policy, both internally and along its supply chain.
The most important international standards we hold are: SA8000 (Social Accountability), ISO 14001 environmental management system, FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) for our packaging, LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) for our buildings and stores, RJC (Responsible Jewellery Council), OHSAS 18001 (Occupation Health and Safety Assessment Series), ISO 14064 (carbon footprint).
Gucci is committed to the sustainability objectives set out at Group level. The Kering Sustainability Report is published every year.
