THE NEW MONCLER INVESTOR RELATIONS APP IS NOW AVAILABLE
Moncler is committed to contribute to the well-being of the community in which it operates, both by promoting independent projects, and by supporting social organisations working in the social sphere on issues such as young people assistance, diversity and inclusion promotion, and the spread of a culture of respect for the environment.
Young people and their future have always been an issue of great concern for Moncler, which for many years has been supporting struggling young people to ensure them access to medical care, an adequate level of education and a clear growth path. This is implemented through partnerships with associations and foundations, including Francesca Rava – N.P.H. Italia Onlus, San Patrignano Community, I Bambini delle Fate, and Amici di Cometa Onlus.
Another issue that is of great importance to the Moncler Group is diversity, equity and inclusion. The Group is aware of how discrimination can be a threat to the community and also how significant it is to create a sense of acceptance and enhancement of diversity.
Since 2020, Moncler, set a target to promote an increasingly inclusive culture. This incorporates donations to organisations committed on the issues of diversity and equal opportunities, including The Face magazine, to launch Future Academy, a programme that provides paid training opportunities to young people who want to join the creative industry. It not only enables them to acquire new skills but also help them to consolidate a series of contacts of great value for their future; and fund-raising through the Artsy platform, the world’s largest online art
This latter project seeks to promote and support the inclusion of BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and People of Color) and transgender people in film, advertising and television programme production staffs.
In addition to this, Moncler also supports activities and projects related to the protection and preservation of the environment. Particularly, in recent years the Company has supported the Ev-K2-CNR Association’s Keep Karakorum Clean and Keep K2 Clean initiatives aimed at cleaning up the mountains and has developed a volunteering project with Legambiente to reduce plastic use and promote plastic recycling.
Ev-K2-CNR is a private, non-profit association that promotes collaborative development projects and scientific research activities in mountain regions. The association’s activity, which is carried out in collaboration with international organisations such as WWF (World Wide Fund for Nature), UNEP (United Nations Environment Programme), UNDP (United Nations Development Programme) and WMO (World Meteorological Organization) and local organisations such as the Minoprio Foundation, focuses on studying and monitoring climate changes and on safeguarding biodiversity and sustainable development in mountainous areas.
United by the passion and respect for mountains, Ev-K2-CNR and Moncler have collaborated since 2014 to promote environmental education
programmes such as Keep Karakorum Clean and Keep K2 Clean. Thanks to these initiatives, also developed in the scope of alpine expeditions
on K2 and in collaboration with local institutions, base camps are annually cleaned up from waste and restored to their natural condition. In 2020, a waste sorting collection system has been activated in collaboration with the authorities of the Central Karakorum National Park (CKNP) and of the Gilgit-Baltistan Province (Pakistan). Moreover, in 2021, a glaciological research centre was established at the Karakorum International University in collaboration with UNDP, the United Nations agency. Due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, in 2021, these activities were carried out directly by CKNP staff, while environmental education activities to raise awareness among the
Pakistani workers on the importance of preserving parks and glaciers and to strengthen nature protection projects in the region, were continued by Ev-K2-CNR in close cooperation with the government of Gilgit-Baltistan (Pakistan), stakeholders and the local population. One Health, a network of laboratories located in the region dedicated to studying and protecting the health of nature and animals, also went ahead. In addition to the Deosai Park cleaning action plan, other activities were also launched in 2021 to support environmental preservation and promote the sustainable development of new areas such as Broad Peak, Gasherbrum, the Concordia ice circus and Jula Camp, where around 7,000 kg of waste were collected and disposed.
Through the Warmly Moncler projects, the Company works with various associations to protect people most in need from the cold.
For five years, Moncler has been protecting the most vulnerable families living in some of the world coldest areas, where the already extreme living conditions intensify with the arrival of winter, making survival a daily struggle.
This was made possible through Moncler support to UNICEF the United Nations Children’s Fund, which provides humanitarian assistance to children and their communities, and other associations such as UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency, which protects the rights and well-being of refugees around the world, and Ev-K2-CNR Pakistan.
From 2017 to 2021 the Company protected approximately 80,000 children and families from the cold with necessities, kits for newborns, blankets and garments.
Moncler aims to protect 150,000 vulnerable people from the cold in 2020-2025 and support local communities with one high social value project every two years.
During the period 2020-2021 Moncler implemented a series of initiatives to protect its people, clients and suppliers from the Covid-19 pandemic, while also providing concrete support to the community for a total amount of about 6 million euros. In particular, the following activities were supported in 2021:
In 2021, Moncler contributed with more than 800,000 euros in collaboration with Fiera Milano Foundation, Generali, and Cisco to the construction of the largest vaccine hub in Italy, at the Palazzo delle Scintille. The centre was born from the desire to address the need to guarantee additional and adequate space in the territory to continue the inoculation of vaccines at an increasingly rapid pace during the Covid-19 pandemic.
The vaccination centre, coordinated by the IRCCS Ca’ Granda Foundation Ospedale Maggiore Policlinico, has 72 vaccination lines and a coded, stage-based route from the moment of acceptance to the delivery of the vaccination certificate.
Moncler has fully contributed to the costs of the setting up and furnishing, such as the acceptance area, anamnesis and inoculation box, the post-vaccine observation area and the workstations of healthcare personnel, and also to the costs of registration activities of the vaccination process, carried out by more than 80 employees recruited by the Policlinico of Milan.
Lastly, every day, the hub employs more than 90 volunteers, who guide recipients along the stages of process, providing information and accompanying them if needed. Since the establishment of the hub, Moncler launched an initiative to involve its corporate headquarters’ employee in Milan who wish to join the volunteering programme, guaranteed during working hours, to support the activity. In 2021, more than 1,800 volunteer hours were carried out.
Distance learning and digitalisation of schools
Moncler contributed to the digitalisation process of kindergartens, elementary and middle schools in Milan, and to the implementation of distance learning by providing approximately 3,900 devices, including ipads, personal computers and the related internet connections. Throughout 2021, Moncler integrated the supply of electronic equipment with a technological support service and a help desk managed by the students of the Politecnico of Milano and dedicated to the teaching staff and, in case of specific needs, also to students.
To complete the project, of a total value of over 2 million euros, through the university’s professors, Moncler has offered a 100-hour training course to support around 80 teachers in identifying a new educational model, increasingly innovative and integrated with new technologies.
Surgical masks for employees and local communities
Protection is a fundamental part of the Group’s DNA, a natural core value that, since 2020, led Moncler to dedicate an entire manufacturing line of its Italian industrial hub in Trebaseleghe (Padua) for the production of surgical mask.
Protective masks, bearing the CE mark and previously authorised by Istituto Superiore di Sanità, were earmarked to the Company’s employees, to the children of employees of Italian offices and to some schools. In particular, the Company produced approximately 1.8 million masks in 2021 and donated 8,000 over the last two years.
Research on the consequences of Covid-19
Moncler donated 250,000 euros to the Umberto Veronesi Foundation to support the development of a protocol to understand the link between diseases involving the immune system, immunomodulators and Covid-19.
The results of this study allowed to establish the risk profile of patients with pre-existing conditions involving the immune system and the effectiveness of using immunomodulators in other conditions, such as during the acute phase of Covid-19 disease.
The project, developed at the San Raffaele Hospital of Milan, also involved the Vita-Salute San Raffaele University of Milan, the University of Milan, the “Carlo Besta” Neurological Institute of Milan and the Bicocca University of Milan.
Stone Island and Club To Club (C2C) festivals, two organisations that share the same culture of experimentation and a special talent in combining the most advanced technological research and human ability, have created STONE ISLAND SOUND, a new project supporting contemporary music production.
A harmonious set of playlists, record releases and soundtracks for stores with the aim of enhancing local communities and building an ideal world sound map. Cultural independence, avant-garde and new pop, irregular sound and original music productions are the stylistic references that inspire and guide the project, which looks above all at the present to enhance ever more diversity.
In early 2021, STONE ISLAND SOUND and CZEROC (C0C) held ‘THE FESTIVAL AS A PERFORMANCE’, aimed at stimulating a consideration on creativity and shared art as the true city’s heritage, where Milan’s iconic spaces were used as stages for a series of artistic and music performances.
