OUR SUSTAINABILITY LEADERSHIP

AWARENESS RAISING AND ENGAGEMENT

We recognise the importance of using our voice to raise awareness of major sustainability issues in the industry to create positive change. Through stakeholder engagement and high-profile partnerships, we are committed to participating in the Environmental Justice Agenda. Our Maison has hosted panel discussions with industry leaders to discuss sustainability in the watch and jewellery industry, including how to incorporate the Sustainable Development Goals into business strategy; how to achieve increased transparency in supply chains; how to raise customer awareness; and how to achieve sustainable mining practices.

SPREADING THE MESSAGE

BASELWORLD ETHICAL GOLD SYMPOSIUM

In March 2018, we organised a high-level panel discussion on global sustainability issues across industries, coinciding with the announcement that Chopard would have achieved 100% Ethical gold status in July 2018. Moderated by the Business of Fashion’s CEO and Founder Imran Amed, the panel featured an array of members including human rights lawyer Cherie Blair as well as being supported by Colin and Livia Firth, Julianne Moore, Arizona Muse and Roy Wang.

The panel addressed the issue of how businesses can successfully implement the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) into their business strategy, the importance of making them relevant and understandable, as well as the challenges they face in the process.

GREEN CARPET CHALLENGE

Our collaboration with the Green Carpet Challenge (GCC) and Eco-Age is key in engaging the public on sustainability issues through high-profile events. The GCC is regarded as the leading force in sustainable fashion worldwide and since its launch, it has involved all the major fashion designers in the world along with an array of A-List celebrities on the biggest red carpets worldwide. By joining this initiative, we are raising awareness about the stories behind our beautiful creations.

All materials featured in our Green Carpet Collections are assessed by Eco-Age for their environmental and social credentials. Additionally, the provenance of raw materials is carefully evaluated. Whilst the standards outlined in our Code of Conduct for Partners are applied to all the materials used in everything we make, in the Green Carpet Collections we have focused on key materials, such as diamonds, black opals, emeralds, and Paraiba tourmalines, to drive change in the supply chain.

THE NAKED HEART FOUNDATION

We have also crafted a special edition of the Happy Hearts bangle adorned with a pink mother-of-pearl heart, from which a percentage of all sales proceeds goes to The Naked Heart Foundation, an organisation dedicated to helping children with special needs. Set up in 2004 by supermodel and philanthropist Natalia Vodianova, the charity’s main mission is to help build an inclusive society that is open to people with disabilities and special needs, through encouraging play and the creation of free support services for affected families. The foundation supports a range of smaller Russian NGOs focused on children with special needs, as well as running family support centres, training teachers at special schools and nurseries to use modern technologies for working with children with autism, along with organising integrative summer camps for children with special needs and their parents.

EDUCATION ABOVE ALL

Set up in 2012 by Her Highness Sheikha Moza bint Nasser, Education Above All aims to sustainably improve human, social and economic conditions worldwide through education. In this range, the Happy Hearts bracelets come in 18-carat rose or white gold, and feature a heart enclosing a dancing diamond and a circle with an “Educate a Child” charm, facing each other in an elegant “pas de deux”. At Chopard, we specifically chose to back the “Educate a Child” programme, which aims to facilitate children’s access to school in geographical locations most threatened by poverty, environmental factors, cultural barriers or conflicts.

JOSÉ CARRERAS

In July 1988, one year after winning his battle against leukemia, world-famous tenor José Carreras set up a foundation to support research and promising scientific projects in the treatment of leukemia. The Foundation helps to improve treatment opportunities and increase the number of hospital units equipped to perform bone marrow transplants. A José Carreras watch –collection was launched in 1996, of which the first limited editions bore engravings of various opera houses around the world on the case-back.

Our partnership with the Jose Carreras Leukemia Foundation continues to hold strong and to support treatment opportunities for leukemia through the sale of our L.U.C XP watches.
