Mondaine Group sustainability at a glance
«We warmly welcome our friends, partners and all people who think sustainably:
We are CO2 neutral, for YOU and for the PLANET - and at no additional cost.
My name is Andre Bernheim, I am Swiss, Chairman of the Board of Directors and, together with my brother Ronnie, second-generation co-owner of the Mondaine Group with our four brands: Mondaine, Luminox, M-Watch and Pierre Cardin. In addition, I am the Group's CSO (Chief Sustainability Officer) as we believe that sustainability should be a top priority for any business.
We are a Swiss SME and over the last decades we have continually strived for sustainable business practices that have made us a pioneer in our industry. Our group and our four brands are comprehensively carbon neutral (Scope 1, 2 and 3 of the Greenhouse Gas Protocol GHG).
In the following I would like to give you a brief overview of our sustainability performance. Details can be found in our extensive sustainability report. Since 1973, we have had a track record in sustainability with major milestones well ahead of our time.
"OUR CREDO: WE CARE MEANS THAT WE ARE SOCIALLY, ENVIRONMENTALLY AND ECONOMIC COMMITMENT."
Andre Bernheim, Co-Owner and Member of the Board of the Mondaine Watch Ltd. group
Our sustainability strategy at Mondaine Group has followed the 3Rs rule for decades: Reduce, Recycle, Reuse.
We have made it our mission to apply these 3Rs in all areas of the supply chain: from the sourcing of raw materials to the transport of components to our Swiss factory and the processes in the factory itself to the headquarters, as well as business trips and deliveries to ours direct customers – and with our watch recycling program we go even further, reaching down to the consumer and even third-party brands with our approach.
Since there are and will always be unavoidable CO2 emissions in every area of our lives, we knew that we had to invest in compensation measures in order to become comprehensively carbon neutral.
We have chosen to offset our emissions through reforestation projects that remove existing CO2 from the atmosphere. In 2020, we were one of the first watch companies in the world to achieve comprehensive CO2 neutrality for the first time. We are committed to remaining carbon neutral in the years to come.
The basis for our CO2 neutrality is a life cycle assessment , which was calculated by an external consulting company and includes all areas of the Greenhouse Gas Protocol (GHG), Scope 1, 2 and 3.
