PARTNERING TO REGENERATE BIODIVERSITY

Regenerating wild spaces

Christian Dior Parfums is now supporting Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) projects to protect and restore wild spaces in France and North America.

"Preserving the great wild spaces in which nature is relatively untouched is essential for biodiversity."

Yann Laurans

North America

Christian Dior Parfums will support the conservation and restoration of 15,000 hectares (approximately 37,000 acres) of natural corridors stretching from Mexico to the United States. This will help encourage Jaguars to return, as their population has been destabilised by human activity and threatened with extinction.

We embarked on a journey of discovery with wildlife biologist Wes Larson in search of the elusive jaguar, whose habitat is being lost and fragmented. WWF, with Dior's support, is working to conserve and protect wild spaces in North America, so that the jaguar, which is essential to the entire ecosystem, can thrive. By protecting and restoring jaguar corridors, we ensure that the majestic feline can regain its vast territory, and with it key benefits on which we depend. It also ensures that the entire ecosystem and the benefits that people depend on are protected.

EUROPE

In France, Christian Dior Parfums will support a program to conserve forest habitats in the Jura, Vosges and Vercors regions, and will also contribute to research in these forests on the Eurasian Lynx population, a key indicator of biodiversity.

CULTIVATING FLOWERS TO REGENERATE BIODIVERSITY

The signature ingredients that make the House of Dior unique in the world of luxury beauty are sourced from flowers. That is why we commit to harnessing the power of flowers to regenerate ecosystems in our 42 gardens and partner gardens around the world, and to preserve floral savoir-faire.

ACCELERATING TOWARDS SUSTAINABLE INGREDIENTS

1 0 0 % of the natural raw materials grown in our gardens and partner gardens will be certified UEBT by 2026.
1 0 0 % of our gardens and partner gardens will be operated in organic and/or in regenerative agriculture by 2030.
8 0 % of our gardens and partner gardens will feature at least one ecosystemic synergy project in their vicinity by 2030.

TOWARDS A FERTILE FOOTPRINT

To act, striving for a greater understanding of the role of flowers in preserving and regenerating biodiversity is crucial. Together with our internal experts at LVMH Research, we commit to working actively with experts from UNESCO MAB, and UEBT to increase our positive impacts on biodiversity and communities.

SEEDING TRANSMISSION AND OPEN INNOVATION

As part of our partnership with HECTAR, the first agricultural campus dedicated to regenerative cultivation, we are developing a training program dedicated to flower farming.
6 0 students will have been trained in regenerative flower farming techniques by 2025.

DEVELOPING LOCAL ECONOMIES

Parfums Christian Dior is particularly attentive to the local impact of its upstream supply chain. For more than 15 years in the Grasse region, the House has established long-term partnerships with 10 growers who are members of the Association Les Fleurs d'Exception du Pays de Grasse, thus contributing to the revival of the cultivation of flower plants in this historic perfume cradle.

Rooted in scientific research and decades of experience as a parfumeur-créateur, our formulas are composed with the highest quality ingredients. We pay special attention to combining the benefits of naturality, sustainability and science to deliver the highest standard of performance and sensory experience.

safety comes first

At Parfums Christian Dior, we have established a responsible formulation charter available on Dior.com since early 2022. This charter lays out our House’s requirements and ambitions concerning our formulas. This charter is explicit on our definition of Clean Beauty.

ever more stringent formulas

Over and above the regulations, Dior excludes the following ingredients from the formulation of its new products while seeking alternatives that will maintain our products’ sensory qualities and performance: • BHA (butylhydroxyanisole), diethyl phthalate, formaldehyde-releasing preservatives, ethanolamine, homosalate, palm oil and palm oil derivatives not certified by the RSPO (Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil), methylisothiazolinone/methylchloroisothiazolinone, octocrylene, oxybenzone and other benzophenones, parabens, cyclic silicones (cyclohexasiloxane, cyclopentasiloxane), aluminum salts, triclocarban, triclosan, triethanolamine •

ever more sustainable natural ingredients

1 0 0 % of formulas will feature an improved sustainability profile thanks to more sustainable ingredients by 2030.
8 0 % of our products contain more than 90% of ingredients of natural origin by 2030*.
8 0 % of biodegradable and non-ecotoxic ingredients by 2030.

EVER MORE SOCIALLY RESPONSIBLE SOURCING

Volume Our goal for our 42 gardens and partner gardens is to move towards regenerative agricultural practices while also seeking to increase the proportion of organic certification in the other channels as much as possible. As a member of the Union for Ethical BioTrade (UEBT), Dior is committed to continuously improving its impact on biodiversity and society.

MAKING CIRCULARITY RHYME WITH DESIRABILITY

In 1953, the House of Dior already offered a selection of exceptional products in precious, refillable cases made to last. Since 2006, the skincare line L’Or de Vie initiated refillability. More recently, Sauvage and lips icons have followed this direction. It is our responsibility to challenge ourselves further in packaging, points of sale and e-commerce.

BLOOMING ECODESIGNED PACKAGING

Packaging plays an essential role in protecting and preserving the essences of our products while offering a luxurious aesthetic experience. Yet, the use of natural resources to create packaging generates a significant carbon footprint. Moving forward, we commit to blooming new, more sustainable ways of selling.

OUR COMMITMENTS

0 % of new virgin fossil plastics created by 2028.*
5 0 % reduction per product or per G or mL of formula by 2030.
1 0 0 % of our products' packaging are refillable** or recyclable by 2028.

INNOVATING FOR CIRCULARITY

By partnering with Eastman, LVMH joins a collective effort for circularity by supporting the creation of a new plastic recycling facility in France. Thanks to this technology, Eastman will produce quality plastic material incurring up to 80% less carbon emissions than traditional processes, hence contributing to the commitment to exclude virgin fossil plastics by 2028.

RENEWING THE DIOR.COM ART OF GIFTING

At a time when online sales are growing exponentially, it is of crucial importance that we strive to minimise associated negative impacts.
1 0 0 % of our e-com offers proposed in FSC ecopack by default.
1 0 0 % sourced recycled cardboard.

RAISING THE BAR IN SUSTAINABILITY FOR POINTS OF SALE

Following LVMH LIFE in STORE ecodesign standards, our overarching goal will be to reinvent shops and boutiques through energy efficiency and responsible sourcing of building materials, increasingly designing our points of sale and visual merchandising with renewable or recycled materials, while ensuring their future recyclability.
1 0 0 % of our boutiques (self-operated points of sale) will have applied LVMH LIFE in STORE ecodesign guidelines by 2030.

ALLOWING BEAUTY TO KEEP BLOSSOMING

Leaving only beauty as a legacy means achieving the pathway laid out in the Paris Accords to limit global warming to +1.5°C. We hold ourselves accountable to respect our commitment to radical science-based reduction targets and lead our industry by setting an ambitious, comprehensive and transparent approach to climate action.

UNQUESTIONABLE SCIENCE-BASED REDUCTION TARGETS

Our carbon reduction trajectory was approved in october 2021 by the science based target initiative, a joint initiative of the united nations global compact, world resources institute, the World Wide Fund for nature (WWF) and CDP (Carbon Disclosure Project), a testament to the robustness of our approach.

EXCELLENCE IN ECODESIGN

Moving forward, we will work to achieve a low-carbon redesign of the full range of our products to reduce CO² emissions at every step of their lifecycle, using simpler, lighter, recycled and less-emitting materials, phasing out virgin plastics while aiming toward zero waste.

0 % of new virgin fossil plastics created by 2028.*

LOW-CARBON TRANSPORTATION

We commit to rethinking our logistics to continually reduce associated carbon emissions. This means challenging and optimizing the choice of transportation between air and sea, reducing travel distances and downsizing packaging to reduce volumes transported.
5 0 % increase of low-carbon transportation by 2030.

A LOW-CARBON ENERGY TRANSITION

We aim to reduce our energy consumption and associated carbon emissions and switch to renewable sources of energy.
1 0 0 % of eletricity coming from renewable sources in self-operated sites by 2026.
