THE NEW MONCLER INVESTOR RELATIONS APP IS NOW AVAILABLE
Moncler is committed to contributing to the welfare of the communities in which it operates, not only by promoting individual projects, but also by endorsing, in more ways than one, organisations working in the social sphere with a focus on supporting young people and spreading a culture of respect for the environment.
One of the issues closest to the heart of Moncler is that which is related to young people and their future. For many years now, the Company has supported new generations in difficulty by ensuring access to medical treatment, adequate levels of education, and a clear growth path, and it does so by collaborating with associations and foundations such as: Francesca Rava – N.P.H. Italia Onlus, San Patrignano Recovery Community, De Marchi Foundation, Together To Go, Dynamo Camp, World of Children Award, I Bambini delle Fate Onlus, A.E.M. (un Avenir pour les Enfants du Monde), Action Innocence, Keep a Child Alive, Amici di Cometa Onlus, and Robin Hood Foundation.
Moncler also supports projects focusing on the protection and preservation of the environment, such as the Keep Karakorum Clean and Keep K2 Clean initiatives promoted by the Ev-K2-CNR Association to protect mountain areas.
Furthermore, in 2016, the Group financed a project to restore the landscape, environment, and rural buildings in the natural area of Mount Fontana Secca e Col de Spadaròt Quero Vas in Belluno (Italy). The project is promoted by the FAI (Fondo Ambiente Italiano – National Trust of Italy), which Moncler has supported since 2015.
FRANCESCA RAVA FOUNDATION – N.P.H. ITALIA ONLUS
The Francesca Rava Foundation helps disadvantaged children in Italy and across the globe through child sponsorships, targeted projects, awareness campaigns on children’s rights, and volunteer work. In Italy, the Foundation represents the international humanitarian organisation N.P.H. (Nuestros Pequeños Hermanos – Our little brothers and sisters), which has helped save orphaned and abandoned children since 1954 by welcoming them into its own orphanage homes and hospitals.
Moncler has stood behind the Foundation since 2010 by supporting the N.P.H. Saint Damien paediatric hospital in Haiti (which assists 80,000 children per year), through the purchase of oxygen generators that supply enough medical gas to cover hundreds of beds in the facility’s general ward and intensive care unit, as well as the four operating rooms.
Ev-K2-CNR is a private non-profit association that promotes collaborative development projects and scientific research focusing on fragile mountain ecosystems.
The association collaborates with international organisations, among others, such as WWF (World Wildlife Fund), UNEP
(United Nations Environment Programme), and WMO (World Meteorological Organization). Its activities are centred on the study and monitoring of climate change, the protection of biodiversity, and sustainable development in mountain areas. For several years, the association has been promoting projects in the mountain areas of Hindu Kush, Karakorum, and Himalaya, as well as in Nepal, Pakistan, Tibet, India, and Bhutan; it also has a laboratory-observatory at 5,050 metres of altitude on the Nepalese side of Mount Everest.
United by the same passion and respect for the mountains, Ev-K2-CNR and
Moncler have collaborated since 2014 in promoting environmental interventions and education programmes, such as Keep Karakorum Clean and Keep K2 Clean. These initiatives, also developed within the scope of the K2 expedition and in collaboration with local institutions, have led to waste cleanups at base camps, which were restored to their natural conditions, and to the creation of a mountain rescue post.
Furthermore, several environmental education activities were launched, with the support of the authorities of Central Karakorum National Park and of the province of Gilgit-Baltistan (Pakistan), to raise awareness among Pakistani operators of the importance of preserving parks and glaciers, with initiatives ranging from the implementation of waste sorting systems to the set-up of a waste recycling centre.
Other environmental education campaigns were launched in schools across the region.
Moncler is committed to helping populations affected by natural disasters. In 2016, the Company partnered with the Francesca Rava Foundation to launch the Warmly Moncler project following the devastating earthquake that hit central Italy in October. Thanks to the initiative, more than 2,000 down jackets were donated to students and teachers from schools affected by the earthquake in the towns of Norcia, Cascia, and Arquata. The jackets were personally
distributed by 25 Moncler employees, who volunteered for two days directly on the eld alongside the Foundation’s volunteers. Additionally, through the Francesca Rava Foundation, Moncler funded the construction of the new elementary school in Cascia, which was completely destroyed by the earthquake. Construction works are expected to begin in 2017.
