Supplier relations are a strategic aspect for Moncler. As such, constant communication and interaction are essential to promoting profitable collaborations and mutually beneficial relationships.
The dialogue with suppliers is encouraged through regular institutional meetings and through daily interactions with the Moncler experts and inspectors tasked with overseeing the various activities involved in production. Indeed, Moncler’s experts provide specialist support at all stages of production in order to share technical know-how and resolve any critical issues.
Furthermore, a new web portal entirely dedicated to suppliers will be launched in 2017, giving them access to communications and documents – such as Moncler’s Code of Ethics and the Supplier Code of Conduct, along with its relevant guidelines – and to a dedicated online training section.
The experts in charge of the external workshops manufacturing jackets are regularly invited to visit Company offices to help analyse samples and share technical and production standards.

Similarly, external knitwear workshop experts are invited at least once a year to train for one week alongside Moncler experts, focusing on procedures and on produc- tion and quality standards, with visits to the Group’s quality control centres. In turn, Moncler experts visit the various third-party production sites as well.
The shared know-how thus becomes an integral and essential component of the relationship between the Company and its suppliers.
In February 2017, in an effort to further promote mutual knowledge, strengthen its relationship with the supply chain, elaborate on contractual and operational aspects, and involve its partners in its journey towards sustainability, Moncler will organise a meeting at its corporate offices in Trebaseleghe (Padua, Italy) with its national and international suppliers involved in the production of jackets. The issues will be addressed during the meeting and will include quality, brand protection, and responsible sourcing principles.
