“When it comes to climate change, we can no longer wait to take real action,” Kering chief executive and chairman François-Henri Pinault said.

“We all need to step up as businesses and account for the GHG emissions that we generate in total. Kering is committing to become completely carbon-neutral as a group across all our operations and supply chains.

“While we focus on avoiding and reducing our GHG emissions to meet our Science-Based Target, we will offset all our remaining emissions and support the conservation of vital forests and biodiversity around the world.”

Meanwhile, Gucci’s environmental profit and loss initiative has been operating since 2015 as a part of its 10-year sustainability strategy.

The strategy includes reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 50 per cent by 2025.
