THE NEW MONCLER INVESTOR RELATIONS APP IS NOW AVAILABLE
Moncler believes in the importance of maintaining strong relationships with all of its stakeholders. Relationships that thrive on constant dialogue and active engagement reflect the Group’s sense of responsibility towards the social context with which it interacts.
Stakeholders have a wide range of differing interests, therefore establishing and maintaining stable and lasting relationships is crucial for creating shared, long-term value.
Understanding specific requirements and priorities enables Moncler to tackle issues before they become critical, and to fine-tune its actions in response to stakeholders’ interests. The first step toward building an effective engagement process involves the clear and timely identification of stakeholders, so as to establish the most effective communication channels, while
continually monitoring expectations, needs and opinions. The Group pursues a proactive approach to all stakeholders worldwide. It does so through dedicated functions that interact with them continually, promoting ongoing dialogue and remaining responsive to their needs. Indeed, Moncler believes that such interactions are opportunities for mutual growth and improvement.
Over the next few years it will be especially important for the Group to design new forms of dialogue, so it can take an increasingly digital native approach to interacting with the community. The following table, which maps stakeholders and their expectations, is periodically revised through internal surveys with the company units in charge of everyday relations with each category.

In addition, since 2019 Moncler has been a member of The Fashion Pact, a coalition of leading global companies in the fashion and textile industry, which together with suppliers and distributors is committed to achieving shared goals in three main areas: fighting global warming, restoring biodiversity, and protecting our oceans.
In 2020 The Fashion Pact published its first Progress Report, describing how it has pursued the three objectives and what the industry needs to do to make a meaningful impact. The highest principles of transparency and ethics, as set out in the Group’s Code of Ethics, govern Moncler’s dealings with political parties and their representatives.
In 2020, Moncler did not make donations to any political parties. Any political activities or donations by Group employees are considered as personal and purely voluntary.
As a multinational company that firmly believes in sustainability, Moncler is committed to contributing to the achievement of the goals published in the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development signed by the 193 member states of the United Nations (UN). The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)
set out the priorities for contributing to global development, promoting human wellbeing, and protecting the environment. The SDGs call for joint global action between governments, businesses, and society, and aim at mobilising all efforts around a common set of goals to be achieved by 2030.
Of the 17 SDGs set by the UN (such as ending poverty, fighting inequality, and tackling climate change), the Group is contributing to 10 either directly or through organisations with which it collaborates. The targets related to the SDGs are clearly indicated in the Sustainability Plan.
Moncler considers collaboration and different experiences to be fundamental values to achieve common objectives, not only in the creative sphere, but also for responsible and sustainable development. Since 2019 Moncler has been a member of The Fashion Pact, a coalition of leading global companies in the fashion and textile industry, which together with suppliers and distributors is committed to achieving shared goals in three main areas: fighting global warming, restoring biodiversity, and protecting our oceans. Joining the Fashion Pact was another important step on the path the Company takes every day, reflecting on
the impact of corporate decisions and seeking yet undiscovered solutions and answers with determination. The Fashion Pact objectives are based on the Science-based target initiative, which focuses on three main areas for protection of the planet. In first place, combating global warming, creating and implementing an action plan to eliminate greenhouse gas emissions by 2050, to keep global warming below 1.5°C, between today and 2100. Secondly, restoring biodiversity, by reaching the targets of the parameters established by the Science-based target initiative, to restore natural ecosystems and protect
species. The third objective is protecting the oceans, reducing the negative impact of the fashion sector on the oceans themselves, through concrete initiatives, such as, for example, the gradual reduction of disposable plastic. In 2020 The Fashion Pact published its first Progress Report, describing how it has pursued the three objectives and what the industry needs to do to make a meaningful impact. Moncler, in full awareness that global challenges require cohesive and generous commitment, is proud to have become part of the Fashion Pact in the name of a common ideal far greater than any single interest.
