The Forest Stewardship Council’s FSC® logo is one of the best recognised environmental symbols in the world. The FSC® runs a global forest certification system that allows consumers to identify, purchase and use wood, paper and other forest products produced from well-managed forests and/or recycled materials.
Back in 2011, Gucci introduced a new type of packaging exclusively made with certified FSC® material.
Fast forward to 2017, and 100% of paper and cardboard used in packaging was FSC® certified. Gucci became a member of FSC® Italy. In a move to reduce the environmental impact of our packaging, we have replaced silica-gel sachets in our shoe packaging with organic cotton sachets containing a natural clay desiccant. We are investigating the possibility of rolling this technology out to all of our leather goods packaging.
