We have also been one of the first of the LVMH Group to embark on a journey to make all stores more efficient thanks to the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification. This ambitious certification program is the most widely used rating system for the environmental impact of buildings, assessing resource-efficient design, construction, operations, and maintenance of buildings.
- LEED INTERIOR DESIGN + CONSTRUCTION
In 2022 we obtained the LEED Interior Design + Construction (ID+C) Certification for nine newly opened stores. This certification applies to new buildings and aims at developing indoor spaces that are better for the planet and people. The next target is to have 24 new stores worldwide LEED ID+C certified by the end of 2023;
- LEED OPERATIONS & MANAGEMENT
We also put in place ambitious targets for our existing stores with the LEED Operations & Management (O&M) certification. This certification applies to existing buildings and aims at improving their environmental impact, energy efficiency, and resource use and to monitor and guarantee the best quality of the indoor environment for customers and employees.
In 2022 we obtained the LEED O&M certification for 14 stores. The target is to have 10 stores certified LEED O&M by the end of 2023.
- LIFE IN STORES CERTIFICATION
In addition to the LEED program, we have also embraced the new LVMH LIFE in Stores Certification Scheme Version4, structured upon 36 quality requirements that are stricter or equivalent to national and international standards and certifications, such as LEED, BREEAM, and HQE. In 2022 we did the first pilot in MILANO GALLERIA, achieved BRONZE level of the new certification protocol.
