Gucci Equilibrium helping to save the planet

Gucci Equilibrium helping to save the planet. Leading fashion magazine, Vogue, report that Italian fashion brand, Gucci has pledged its commitment to sustainability and transparency by launching Gucci Equilibrium, an online platform “designed to connect people, planet and purpose”.

Gucci president and CEO, Marco Bizzarri told WWD “We have been working on sustainability for so long and we realised at one point that our actions needed to be better understood within and outside the company,”

Their website, Equilibrium.gucci.com, will be used as a tool to communicate for the 13,000 Gucci employees to complement a new company-wide programme that will allow all member of staff to dedicate one percent of their working time to volunteering in local communities. “If each employee is involved – bingo,” Bizzarri said. “We can’t save the world alone, but we must start from small things, and there are no shortcuts.”

“These are critical times when we can all play our part in helping to deliver on the UN Global Goals and the Paris Climate Agreement,” Bizzarri added. “The only way to do that is by bringing people together, sharing ideas, innovation and experiences. This is the objective we have set for Gucci Equilibrium.”
