IMPACT REPORT 2020
Gucci Equilibrium is our commitment to generate positive change for people and our planet. Powered by creativity and collaboration, we are reducing our environmental impact and protecting nature, while also prioritising inclusivity and respect, so that everyone in our global Gucci community is free to express their authentic, diverse selves. This report brings alive a selection of what we have achieved so far, and how we will continue to demonstrate the principles we uphold and the actions we pursue to treat our world and each other better, for our collective future.
Innovative, progressive and influential, at Gucci we are creating a wholly modern approach to fashion. Under the leadership of President and CEO, Marco Bizzarri, and the vision of Creative Director, Alessandro Michele, we have redefined luxury for the 21st century, further reinforcing our position as one of the world’s most desirable fashion houses. Eclectic, contemporary, romantic – Gucci collections represent the pinnacle of Italian craftsmanship and are unsurpassed for their quality and attention to detail. We are part of the Kering Group.

From the urgency of climate change and biodiversity loss to the critical social issues that have risen to the forefront – our world, and our industry, is at a crossroads. Stepping away from the old, traditional systems in fashion and embracing – and driving – real, lasting change is part of a future we collectively and quickly need to transition to.
In our inaugural Gucci Equilibrium Impact Report we are highlighting a selection of the initiatives we have created to generate positive change for people and our planet. We focus on the issues that have the biggest positive impact and where we have the greatest opportunity to create long-lasting change.
Fuelling our creative vision is a desire to empower people to live a life of self-expression, so that everyone in our global community is free to be their authentic and unique selves. Our combined differences are what allow us to thrive and we foster an environment that is respectful, inclusive and diverse, where everyone is considered equal.
