In 2019 Kering Eyewear has continued to develop and support various projects that aim to reduce resource consumption and continue to promote parity and diversity.
Kering Eyewear has grown rapidly in very little time all thanks to its employees determination and collaborative efforts.
We believe that to be successful we have to work together and this is true especially when it comes to sustainability, which is why this year, we focused on strengthening our sustainability engagement with both our employees and suppliers.
Workshops were organized internally to train numerous departments on the 2025 Strategy and the Kering Standards for Raw Materials and Manufacturing Processes to educate, inspire and engage employees.
In 2019 Kering Eyewear also focused on supplier engagement by organizing a “Sustainability Day Workshop.”
In addition to the workshop Kering Eyewear also participated in the study “Supporting Women in the Luxury Supply Chain: A Focus on Italy” led by BSR and Wise Growth with Bottega Veneta, Gucci and Pomellato, in collaboration with Camera Nazionale della Moda and Valore D to conduct a phased supplier engagement strategy across our Italian supply chain.
Lastly, an ongoing workshop has been developed called “Past still Present.
Lesson from Art” that links social and cultural sustainability with Italyʼs artistic heritage, while also supporting the important initiatives supported by the Kering Foundation.
The purpose of this workshop is to highlight how violence against women is something that transcends history and can be very clearly seen in three very famous frescos by Tiziano Vecellio which are found in the Scuola Del Santo in Padova (dated back to the early 1500s).
Departing from this idea of “Past Still Present” the workshop takes its participants through a journey of violence against women through the lens of art later bringing us back to the present where we see the same types of offences that women face today.
