The Moncler Group is committed to reduce packaging materials as well as to research and to adopt lower-impact alternatives.
In 2021 a Manual was adopted at Group level, setting out guidelines for the selection of materials with the lower impact to be used for the packaging, as well as in the elements used in the stores and shop windows, with the aim of orienting all the functions within Moncler and Stone Island that design and select such elements.

The guidelines contained in the manual are inspired by the following principles:
• reducing the amount of materials used
• simplifying the structure of products with a view to eco-design by favouring mono-material or easily-disassembled articles to promote reuse and recyclability
• reducing the use of virgin raw materials, especially if from fossil origin, by favouring materials from renewable sources or recycling
• designing items that can be used for a long time, re-used and recycled

• selecting materials that have a validated sustainability performance supported by documentary evidence and measurements, and, where possible, certified
• using only materials that comply with the Group’s Restricted Substances List (RSL).

In recent years, the Group has launched a series of programmes to improve packaging design mainly focused on recyclability, re-usability and durability as well as on reducing the material used.
In particular, in order to promote recyclability, where possible, the use of a single material per item has been foreseen and at the Castel San Giovanni (Piacenza) logistics hub a recycling process was implemented, involving a private partner operating at the facility to ensure proper, effective management of the recycling of packaging materials. 83% of the materials used in packaging are recyclable and recycled, registering an increase compared to 2021 (79%).

With regard to reusability and durability, 69% of packaging, in particular the one intended for end clients, is reusable.

The Group is committed, where feasible, to furtherly and continuously reduce year after year the volume of its packaging in order to improve the environmental performance of its products. Among initiatives relating to the reduction of the weight and materials used, since 2021 Stone Island has replaced the traditional stone paper used to create the shopping bag with recycled paper, resulting in a reduction in the weight of each bag of 35%; at Moncler, packaging made of single-use plastic used for the logistics transport of shoes was eliminated and a procedure was introduced to optimise the quantity of packaging used for the internal shipment of fabric samples and accessories between the various company functions, resulting in savings in the materials used.
Lastly, from 2021, in the Moncler e-commerce website, the Born To Protect (BTP) packaging option, which uses fewer items and has a lower weight than the Signature option one (which in any case only uses materials with a lower impact than conventional materials), was introduced as a the default choice. In 2022, more than 70% of the e-commerce packaging used is BTP.


70% of the materials used in total packaging (logistics, production, for end clients and used in offices) by both Moncler and Stone Island is paper and cardboard from responsibly managed forests and 79% made of recyclable materials.
16% of the materials used in Group’s packaging is represented by recycled plastics. Compared to 2021, the use of paper and cardboard increased

by 7 percentage points and the use of plastic decreased by 3 percentage points.
The third mostly used material (6%) is wood, all from recycled materials, represented mainly by logistic pallets, which by their nature are reusable.
The remaining materials are: synthetic fibres, 99% recycled; natural materials; artificial

materials; and metals and other.
Despite the excellent results achieved, the Group is looking for continuous improvement. Annual R&D investment is thus allocated to explore and identify solutions with lower environmental impact, also with the support and in collaboration with international start-ups.

Packaging for the end client6

Since 2022 all of the Moncler Group’s packaging for end clients has been made from lower-impact and mostly reusable materials, made to last. In particular, all paper and cardboard come from responsibly managed forests (FSC and PEFC certification) and are made from 66% recycled materials, 14 percentage points higher than last year. Paper is mainly used for shopping bags, whose paper is 100% recycled, for gift boxes, tags and shoe boxes.

The second most widely used material is plastic, down from last year by four percentage points, almost exclusively (98%) recycled and reusable. In particular, accessories such as the garment covers zippers and bags used in the e-commerce channel are made of recycled plastic, as well as hangers, which have been redesigned with a removable hook, thus promoting a correct recycling process.

The third most used material for packaging for the end client is synthetic fibres, almost exclusively from post-consumer recycled plastic bottles, used for garment covers as well as bags for accessories and knitwear.
Natural fabrics, almost entirely represented by certified organic cotton, are mainly used for all shoes bags and accessories bags used in stores.
Packaging intended for the Moncler Group end clients is 100% made from lower-impact materials.

Logistics packaging8

The materials mostly used for the Group’s logistic packaging are paper and cardboard from responsibly managed forests (FSC and PEFC certification) and 87% made up of recycled

materials, 3 percentage points more than in the previous year.
Plastic, which accounts for 20% of total logistics packaging, is 97% recycled, 9 percentage points

higher than last year.
By 2023 all packaging used in logistics will consist only of lower impact materials, which currently make up 99%.

Single use plastic9

The impact of plastic on the environment, especially single-use virgin plastic, has become a very important issue for the planet. The Group has progressively reduced the use of single-use virgin plastic until its complete phase out by 2023.
To date 97% of the Group’s single-use plastic is

recycled plastic, ten percentage points higher compared to last year.
The decision to replace single-use virgin plastic with recycled plastic stems from a Life Cycle Assessment conducted with Politecnico of Milan to identify the best alternative from an environmental and technical-performance point of view. This analysis showed that recycled

plastic reduces CO2 emissions by 35% and water consumption by 60% compared to virgin plastic. In addition to preferring recycled plastics, the weight of many single-use items was reduced by 10%, thus allowing a reduction in unit weight and a decrease in the use of raw materials.


All the paper and cardboard used by the Group come from responsibly managed forests. Given their significant use, they are constantly

the focus of improvement projects, linked to the reduction of their use where possible and to the increase in the percentage of recycled material.

To date, 77% of the Group’s paper is made up of recycled material, 6 percentage points higher compared to last year.


Moncler’s e-commerce channel allows a choice of two types of packaging made from low environmental impact materials:


“SIGNATURE” PACKAGING: products are presented in a reusable Moncler box, tied with a tricolour ribbon.

• The external logistics box is made of 100% recycled paper from responsibly managed forests
• The inner “Signature” box is made of paper from responsibly managed forests, of which more than 50% is from recycled sources

• The inner bags included with down jackets are made from materials derived from post-consumer recycled plastic bottles
• The hangers included with down jackets are made of recycled plastic
• Last-mile delivery is done through the “UPS® carbon neutral” service for the Americas and EMEA Regions, whereas for Korea and Japan Moncler neutralises last-mile emissions through offsetting projects.


“MONCLER BORN TO PROTECT” PACKAGING: this option uses a reduced number of packaging

layers, placing products in light, reusable packaging.
• The external logistics box is made of 100% recycled paper from responsibly managed forests
• The inner bags are made from materials deriving from post-consumer recycled plastic bottles
• The hangers are made of recycled plastic
• Last-mile delivery is done through the “UPS® carbon neutral” service for the Americas and EMEA Regions, whereas for Korea and Japan Moncler neutralises last-mile emissions through offsetting projects.
