These new members are coming in addition to the founding members Cartier and kering Group, and Boucheron, Gucci Watches, Pomellato, Dodo, Qeelin, Chanel Horlogerie Joaillerie, Montblanc, Rosy Blue and Swarovski.
Commenting on the continued growth of the initiative, Iris Van der Veken, Executive Director and Secretary General of the Watch & Jewellery Initiative 2030, said: “It is inspiring to see the unanimous response from CEOs and key stakeholders to drive positive change and accelerate collective action. Welcoming this illustrious group of brands underscores the importance of collaborative initiatives in our industry. More than ever, ambitious Partnerships/collective actions are fundamental to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals as we progress towards 2030 and beyond.”
During a panel discussion today at the Watch Forum organised by the Fondation de la Haute Horlogerie in Geneva, Iris Van der Veken, newly appointed as Executive Director and General Secretary of the Watch & Jewellery Initiative 2030, Marie-Claire Daveu, Chief Sustainability and Institutional Affairs Officer at Kering, and Cyrille Vigneron, President and CEO of Cartier International, shared updates on the initiative’s objectives and impact, as well as clarified the governance of this resource platform.
Cartier, delegated by Richemont, and Kering launched the Watch & Jewellery Initiative 2030 in October 2021 driven by a common conviction that the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and aspirations for a sustainable industry can only be achieved through collaborative initiatives. The global initiative is open to all watch and jewellery players with a national or international footprint. It is committed to a common core of key sustainability goals in three areas: building climate resilience, preserving resources, and fostering inclusiveness.
