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, I Bambini delle Fate Onlus, Action Innocence, and Amici di Cometa Onlus.
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. Or the project to restore the landscape, environment, and rural buildings in the natural areas of Mount Fontana Secca and Col de Spadaròt Quero Vas in Belluno (Italy), 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 chil- dren 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 a 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 its four operating rooms, and with cash donations to cover the salaries and the costs of training (both in Italy and on site) of new paediatric surgeons, so as to increase the level of service and care at the hospital.
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 the Hindu Kush-Karakoram- Himalaya region, 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 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 clean-ups 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.
Thanks to Moncler’s support, the Ev-K2-CNR launched a new initiative in 2017, the Baltoro Cleanup Campaign, promoting the environmental conservation of the Baltoro Glacier, one of the largest freshwater reserves in Gilgit-Baltistan. The project led to the collection of over 5,000 kg of waste in three months.
CHILDREN IN NEED OF HELP AND ASSISTANCE
UNICEF, the United Nations Children’s Fund, is present in 190 countries worldwide and provides humanitarian aid to children and their mothers, mainly in developing countries. Millions of children around the world live in conditions of dire need, which become even more desperate in winter, making survival a daily struggle.
In 2017, Moncler teamed up with UNICEF to help children living in extreme poverty in countries where climatic and social conditions are most challenging. Through the Warmly Moncler for Unicef project, the Company helped around 11,500 children in Syria, Nepal, and Mongolia by donating clothing and other items to face the winter and protect themselves from the cold.
