Chanel 1.5°: A Sustainability Journey


Our featured case for the month of May looks at luxury brand Chanel embarking on an ambitious sustainability initiative.

In a short span, Chanel embraced CSR and ESG initiatives that stretched far beyond its established comfort zone of artistic direction and creative output.

The progression of these initiatives culminated in March 2020, when the company launched Chanel Mission 1.5°, a strategy for embarking on a decarbonization journey across the business as well as the value chain.
