We have challenged ourselves to look ahead and ask how we can ensure that sustainability becomes more efficient and effective throughout our business.
To do this, we collaborate with incubator funds and accelerator programmes to support innovation in sustainable materials and processes.
Gucci works with various organisations and external partners to stimulate disruptive innovation, identifying innovative start-ups and supporting them in scaling-up their technologies and new business models.
We also work with MIL (Material Innovation Lab), founded by Kering in 2013.
We create the right climate to give our people the chance to think innovatively, gathering their ideas through internal initiatives such as the Leadership & Innovation Program.
During 2018 Gucci continued to support the development of these innovative projects, including:
- The elimination of the use of solvents and the use of bioplastic bases in the production of the coating of some fabrics;
- A new leather preservation process which reduces environmental impact;
- An innovative process to enhance the recycling of leather scraps whilst in production;
- A blockchain system for enhancing the traceability of information.
