The main raw materials used by Moncler are fabrics, yarns and down. The Company works continuously with its suppliers, requiring that production processes be structured so as to optimise material usage and cutting, thereby avoiding waste.
The same attention is given to paper and cardboard used for office purposes or product packaging, with improvement projects focusing on origin certification, the percentages of recycled content, and, where possible, usage limitations and waste sorting for recycling.
A campaign was implemented globally to promote the use of paper from responsible sources, i.e., those that ensure sustainable forestry practices. As a result of this joint and ongoing effort, already from 2017, about 100% of the paper used in offices and shops comes from responsible sourcing and all logoed material used worldwide is made of Elemental Chlorine Free (ECF) paper

from responsible sources, 100% of which are ISO 14001-certified.
As regards packaging, the boxes used are made almost entirely of paper and cardboard from responsible sources and all of Moncler’s shopping bags are made of paper that is 100% from responsible sources and 40% made from recycled material, and reinforcement cardboard that is 100% from responsible sources and 90% made from recycled material. The shopping bags also have cotton components.
Since 2016, in an effort to raise employee awareness of the environmental impacts of day-to-day activities and to promote sustainable behaviours also in offices, the corporate offices in Italy have introduced the use of personalised codes for all copying/printing activities. The goal is to enhance employees’ sense of responsibility and to rationalise the number of printed documents, so as to

cut toner and paper consumption.
In 2018 the project was extended to the offices of the EMEA Region in Paris and to the logistics hub in Castel San Giovanni, Piacenza.
Another project launched in late 2018, which will significantly reduce paper consumption, is the development of an electronic incoming invoice archive. A programme has been launched to digitise all incoming invoices in Italy, France, Austria, Germany and Belgium. The entire process has been digitised, from the authorisation phase to the electronic archiving of the invoice, thus making it possible to significantly reduce the paper consumed. In order to spread a “zero paper” approach, the project will be progressively extended to other countries, compatibly with local regulations.
