We take action every day to shape a more elegant world. This means a better control of our environmental impact, the use of preferred raw materials and increasing the lifespan of our products.


The textile industry accounts for around 10% of carbon emissions worldwide. As a signatory of the Fashion Pact and driven by our Durable Elegance approach, at Lacoste we have defined demanding targets to reduce our carbon footprint both on our sites and throughout our supply chain.

Our objectives


reduction of greenhouse gas emissions in absolute by 2030 in our scopes 1 & 2


reduction of greenhouse gas emissions by product in our scope 3 by 2030


employees trained in environmental main stakes by the end of 2024


To reduce the environmental footprint of our products, we take action throughout the entire product life cycle focusing on 3 levers:

  • Using preferred* raw materials
  • Extending the lifespan of our products
  • Finding second-life solutions for our unsold products

Our objectives
