Moncler takes wide-ranging measures to protect biodiversity, reduce its consumption of water, energy, and other resources, avoid waste, and combat climate change.
It wants to be better and more efficient by looking at every aspect of its value chain to ensure the healthy functioning of our planet. However, the majority of its business remains detrimental to the environment.
Moncler only uses a tiny proportion of organic materials such as organic cotton or recycled materials such as recycled cotton, recycled polyester, and regenerated nylon.
Only very few of its collections are dedicated to sustainable fashion. Most of the fabrics it uses are either natural without relevant certifications, such as regular cotton or linen, or synthetic petroleum-based fibers such as polyester, nylon, acrylic, and more.
Moncler also uses a small proportion of semi-synthetic fibers or regenerated cellulosic fabrics such as lyocell, modal, acetate, and viscose.
Moncler doesn't publish a list of all its manufacturers and processing facilities on its corporate website, MonclerGroup.com. But more than 70% of them are in Itlay.
The 2022 Fashion Transparency Index gave Moncler a score of only 17% based on how much the group discloses about its social and environmental policies, practices, and impacts.
The Italian clothing retailer does show some labor certification standards that could ensure good working conditions, decent living wages, health, safety, and other crucial rights for workers in its supply chain.
Moncler has a code of conduct that applies to all its suppliers and subcontractors based on the regulations set by the International Labor Organization (ILO).
Moncler assesses compliance with its Code of Conduct by informal visits or third-party audits with or without notice. It assesses manufacturers and finished product suppliers with ethical, social, and environmental audits.
Moncler doesn't use exotic animal skin, hair, fur, or angora. But it uses leather, wool, silk, and down feathers to manufacture many of its clothing pieces.
These animal-derived materials are cruel and unethical. They also harm the environment by producing greenhouse gases and waste. More sustainable alternatives exist.
Moncler has committed to reducing its environmental impact across the entire supply chain. It already achieved 100% carbon neutrality at its own corporate sites worldwide and plans 100% renewable energy by 2023.
Moncler plans to reduce its CO2 emissions by 70% in Scope 1 and 2 and 14% in scope 3 (in the Purchased Goods category), by 2030 compared to 2019 to achieve net-zero emissions in 2050.
50% of its cotton will be lower impact (organic, BCI, and recycled) in 2025. And in 2025, over 50% of yarns and fabrics will be lower impact as well.
