Louis Vuitton – Environmental Charter.
So Louis Vuitton has composed the “Environmental Charter” below:
“Louis Vuitton wishes to bring creativity and sustainable development close together.
The environmental protection is the business of all. Beyond a strong conviction, Louis Vuitton has embarked up a voluntary environmental programme for severa; years. The high environmental performance is registered in the heart of Louis Vuitton trades.”
The following constitutes the “Actions” Louis Vuitton are enacting to fulfill their “Environmental Charter”:
“The vast majority of the materials used come from natural sources (leather), it has a real interest for Louis Vuitton in ensuring that these materials are available in the future.
This awkening led Louis Vuitton to pass to the act to reduce the impact of its activities on the environment.”
Perhaps someone should tell one of the worlds largest users of leather that in a groundbreaking 2006 report, the United Nations (U.N.) said that raising animals for leather generates more greenhouse gases than all the cars and trucks in the world combined. Senior U.N. Food and Agriculture Organization official Henning Steinfeld reported that the leather and meat industries are “one of the most significant contributors to today’s most serious environmental problems.”
Are Louis Vuitton ignorant to these facts or are they trying to create a smoke screen (a CO2 smoke screen)?
