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. An awareness initiative was implemented globally to promote the use of paper from responsible sources – i.e., those that ensure sustainable forestry practices.
Thanks to this joint effort, 100% of the paper used in offices and stores in 2017 came from responsible sources (versus 64% in 2015 and 98% in 2016).

Furthermore, still in 2017, almost all logoed material used worldwide was made of Elemental Chlorine Free (ECF) paper from responsible sources, 99% of which were ISO 14001-certified (versus 93% in 2016). With regard to packaging, the boxes used for the shipment of products sold online were redesigned; the new models, introduced in 2016, are entirely made of ECF paper/cardboard from certified sources and feature over 65% in recycled content. The boxes are also more than 90% recyclable. Moncler’s eco-friendly shopping bags, also introduced in 2016 to all boutiques, feature cotton components, 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.

Since 2016, in an effort to raise employee awareness of the environmental impacts of day-to-day activities and to promote sustainable behaviours, 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 the wake of the two 16-hour training sessions on Paper and Printing: Certifications and Environmental Implications, delivered in 2016 to employees at the corporate offices in Trebaseleghe (Padua, Italy) and Milan, further training activities on paper certifications were organised in 2017 for employees across regional offices.
