As family business with long-term vision, sustainability is a part of the Puig DNA and of the company’s way of doing business. “We strive to act as responsibly as we can within the constraints of the luxury industry with the aim of making the world a better place for generations to come by striking an ever better balance between our environmental stewardship and our business operations,” states Marc Puig, Chairman and CEO.

From the start, Puig has been committed to building a sustainable future and respecting the environment. In 2014, as the company celebrated its 100th Anniversary, Puig took a major step forward, by announcing a company-wide program: the Sustainability Plan to 2020. Comprehensive, conceived for the long term, this blueprint sets forth clear commitments, objectives and timelines for improving the organization’s sustainability performance. The Plan covers five pillars of activity which address sustainability across the value chain:

  • - Product Stewardship which includes guidelines to optimize and reduce packaging and prioritizes the use of more sustainable materials and ingredients;
  • - Sustainable Sourcing which extends the Puig environmental and social commitment to its suppliers and includes sustainability criteria in the qualification and prioritization of suppliers;
  • - Responsible Logistics which seeks ways to reduce transportation emissions through process optimization in partnership with the logistic suppliers;
  • - Responsible Manufacturing which aims to minimize negative effects caused by production on the environment;
  • - Employees and Facilities with the objective of reducing the environmental footprint of company staff.

The plan sets concrete objectives to be achieved in each area by 2020.

Further details of this plan, the 2020 goals and the most important milestones achieved in 2016 can be found in the 2016 Sustainability Report available here as well as in the video below.
