In January 2021 Moncler reaffirmed its commitment to the environment by announcing the launch of a range of jackets entirely made of sustainable materials for men, women and children, the outcome of the constant search for innovative solutions with low environmental impact. A physical realization of the Strategic Sustainability Plan Moncler Born to Protect, the jackets illustrate the Company’s vision for a circular economy and represent, in a tangible way, three of the plan’s five pillars:

• climate action: every material in the Moncler Born to Protect jackets is sustainable. Fabrics and accessories, with the exception of down, are recycled ensuring a reduction of roughly 40% of CO2 emissions;

• circular economy: fabrics and accessories including zips and buttons are made of Econyl® nylon, a regenerated nylon derived from ocean and land-based waste, ensuring the re-use of materials wherever possible;

• fair sourcing: as for all Moncler apparel, down is 100% DIST (Down Integrity System and Traceability) certified, ensuring traceability and high farming standards through a scientific approach all along the supply chain. The down, derived exclusively from geese farmed for the purpose of meat, is a by-product of the food chain.

The research for sustainable materials has also been extended to packaging: all paper is sourced from responsibly managed forests, and additionally to this, the shopping bags and gift boxes also include recycled paper.
