ECO-DESIGN TRAINING

For Louis Vuitton since 2014

THE CONTEXT

  • 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 AIMS

  • 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 INVOLVEMENT
The 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.

THE RESULTS

  • 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. »
