Moncler is committed to helping populations affected by natural disasters.
In October 2016, when a number of municipalities in central Italy were hit by a devastating earthquake, Moncler promptly took action to offer its help. Since then, it has continued to be address the needs of the local population, especially young people. Through its partnership with the Francesca Rava – NPH Italia Foundation (which has played a leading role in tackling the emergency by rebuilding eight schools in two years), the Company donated more than 2,000 down jackets to students and teachers from schools hit by the earthquake in the towns of Norcia, Cascia and Arquata del Tronto. In Cascia, it funded the construction of the new elementary school and the set-up of a multifunctional sports facility. In 2018, Moncler financed the construction of a playground at the nursery school in Pieve Torina, Macerata.
The playground’s design was inspired by
an educational concept focusing on environmental issues, through research into and study of exclusive games, created specially by architects from the University of Camerino. The opening of the school in Pieve Torina was attended by 15 Moncler volunteer workers who, together with some volunteer entertainers from the Foundation, engaged the children in a series of entertainment activities inspired by the theme ‘Mountains and Bears’.
Finally, in 2018, an extraordinary wave of bad weather hit northern Italy, felling about 14 million trees, upsetting the environmental balance of vast mountain areas and endangering the hydrogeological stability of these areas from Trentino to Alto Adige, from the Veneto to Friuli. Through its collaboration with Treedom, Moncler has decided to contribute to reestablishing forests in the Veneto, planting a thousand trees and donating them symbolically to all employees in Italy.
