Mondaine’s Group Sustainability at a glance
«Hello to all our friends, partners, and sustainably minded peers:
We are CO2 neutral, for YOU and the PLANET – at no extra cost.
My name is Andre Bernheim, I am Swiss, the president of the board and jointly with my brother Ronnie the 2nd generation co-owner of the Mondaine Group with our four brands: Mondaine, Luminox, M-Watch and Pierre Cardin. I am as well the CSO, Chief Sustainability Officer of the group, as our belief is that sustainability needs to be a top priority for any company.
We are a Swiss SME, and we have a history of continuous efforts in sustainable business practices over the past decades that have made us a leader in our industry. Our group and all our four brands are comprehensively CO2 neutral (scopes 1,2 and 3 of the Greenhouse Gas protocol GHG).
I would like to give you a short summary of our sustainability achievements here, the details you will find in our extensive sustainability report. We have a proven track record in sustainability, starting in 1973, with great milestones ever since, very much ahead of our time.Today, we are a leading watch company worldwide regarding sustainability, and I would like to share with you the reasons why.
Read more about our commitment in our 2021 Sustainability Report.
"OUR CREDO: WE CARE MEANS TAKING CARE SOCIALLY, ECOLOGICALLY AND ECONOMICALLY."
Andre Bernheim, Co-Owner and Member of the Board of the Mondaine Watch Ltd. group
At the Mondaine Group, our sustainability path has followed for decades the 3R rule: Reduce, Recycle, Reuse.
We make it our mission to apply the 3Rs in all areas of the supply chain; from the sourcing of raw materials, shipping components to our Swiss factory, the factory itself and headquarters, as well as business travelling, and shipments to our direct customers – and even beyond, with our watch recycling program to all consumers, even for 3rdparty brands.
As there always are and always will be non-avoidable CO2 emissions in every part of our lives, we knew we would have to invest in offsets to become comprehensively climate neutral.
We decided to compensate our emissions with reforestation projects, as this will remove already existing CO2 from the atmosphere. We achieved a comprehensive CO2 neutrality for the first time in 2020, as one of the first watch companies worldwide to do so. We are dedicated to ensuring we remain CO2 neutral in the years to come.
The base for our CO2 neutrality is an ecological balance sheet which was calculated by an external consulting firm and includes all areas of the Greenhouse Gas protocol (GHG), scopes 1, 2 and 3.
