We aim to reduce the environmental impact of our owned facilities through effective management of identified risk areas. By effectively managing energy usage, recycling pre-consumer waste materials and reducing our packaging, we continue to demonstrate our commitment to tackling climate change and making sure that all materials are manufactured in a responsible manner. This also helps to ensure that end-of-life waste does not create additional environmental damage.
Our facilities meet and exceed all legislative requirements, providing efficient, low environmental impact buildings, which demonstrates our commitment to sustainable growth.
Our Swiss facilities are supplied by 100% renewable electricity, and we have installed a solar array at the Fleurier Ebauches production site. Specific measurement systems are in place to monitor VOC emissions, as well as water and electricity consumption.
We also monitor the waste generated by our operations, in order to reduce our overall environmental impact over time. Guided by the REDUCE – REUSE – RECYCLE motto, we have established a thorough range of recycling lines, allowing for nearly 30 different materials to be collected and reused.
At Chopard, we constantly work to improve the packaging material used for all our masterpieces. Our watch and jewellery packaging range now features materials certified by the Forestry Stewardship Council (FSC), Oeko-Tex and the Programme for Endorsement of Forest Certification (PEFC).
All of Chopard’s printed marketing and communication material, as well as all in store shopping bags and wrapping, are made of FSC certified paper.
