For Louis Vuitton since 2014
- Following up on LVMH’s LIFE program, Louis Vuitton decided to include an environmental approach to the development of its products.
- In 2014, the environment department of Louis Vuitton approached Mu for guidance in training their teams.
- The initial aim was to help the teams in assessing the added value from eco-design in their field and to use it to innovate.
- The long-term aim is to spread the eco-design approach throughout the brand, particularly by including the training to the catalog of training.
OUR INVOLVEMENTThe pedagogic objectives are the following:
- Decipher the environmental impacts of a product, of a supplier, etc.
- Measure the added value of eco-design for one’s field and use it to innovate.
- Understand a product’s life cycle.
- Understand the role of materials in the eco-design approach.
- Communicate appropriately on the approach.
- Following the training, an eco-design approach was launched on a pilot-product.
- Approximately 50 collaborators have been trained over 3 years (Design, Marketing, Customer Services, etc.).
« Eco-design is a precious ally in going beyond nice talks. It is also a source of economic savings, in any case according to a global cost and long-term approach. »
