Because sustainability is inherent to the quality of its products and the management of its activities, Balenciaga is committed to releasing collections that reflect its engagement for a better world and a sustainable future.
Conscious of its responsibilities, Balenciaga is continuously seeking to perfect its offering for its clients who are looking for responsible luxury.
Balenciaga shares its parent company Kering’s vision and places at the heart of its strategy the five following priority actions:
–Create a collective commitment and involve all employees in its quest for sustainability
–Reduce the environmental impacts of its activities and supply chain (greenhouse gas, water, waste)
–Offer products that have no damage on the environment
–Involve its suppliers to adhere to its commitments and help them improve their social and environmental performances
–Preserve natural resources that are at the heart of Balenciaga creativity and innovation and source them in the protection of biodiversity, environment and respect of animal welfare.
We have chosen to partner with Reforestum to raise awareness about the carbon footprint associated with every e-commerce purchase. We work continuously to reduce the environmental footprint of our products.
This project is an integration on Balenciaga.com in which an automated mechanism attributes Carbon Assets (Carbon Credits or Forest Shares) to Balenciaga customers after checkout on the Reforestum platform. This mitigates an amount of CO2 equivalent to the carbon footprint of the basket of the products you buy with more trackability and trust.
With every purchase, we calculate the residual carbon emissions generated by the purchase and invest the corresponding funds in three different projects worldwide that protect local biodiversity, restore natural ecosystems, and increase resilience to climate change.
Within your order confirmation email you will be able to claim your gift, as the environmental asset that Balenciaga has financed to mitigate the impact of your purchase will now belong to you.
For information on sustainability, please contact email@example.com.
