The ISSP Greater New York City Chapter will present the next Leaders In Sustainability keynote featuring special guest Laurent Claquin, Head of Kering Americas on Wednesday, April 19th from 6:00-7:30pm ET in the Cantor Boardroom at New York University. In partnership with NYU | Stern Center for Sustainable Business, the evening includes an informal networking reception.
Crafting Tomorrow's Luxury
A global luxury group, Kering develops an ensemble of luxury houses in fashion, leather goods, jewelry and watches. Kering believes that sustainability and luxury are one and the same and over the last ten years, has placed sustainability at the core of their business strategy. By “empowering imagination,” Kering encourages its brands to reach their potential in the most sustainable manner.
Laurent Claquin, Head of Kering Americas and former Director of Corporate Social Responsibility at Kering will share the Group’s roadmap, aimed at driving their brands toward higher levels of economic, environmental, ethical and social performance. Mr. Claquin will explore Kering’s targets for 2025, discussing how the Group intends to launch disruptive solutions and empower future generations. He’ll also provide insight into Kering’s Environmental Profit & Loss (EP&L) methodology, which allows a company to measure in monetary value the environmental impacts generated across its entire value chain.
Laurent Claquin is Head of Kering Americas, the parent company of 20 global luxury, sports, and lifestyle brands, including Gucci, Yves Saint Laurent, Alexander McQueen, Balenciaga, Brioni, Stella McCartney, Puma, and Volcom. He has been with Kering (formerly PPR) since 2004, when he joined as an Advisor to Francois-Henri Pinault at Artemis. Before his current role, Claquin initiated and developed Kering’s corporate social responsibility program, and prior to that, he was Kering’s Senior Vice President of Communication. Claquin also has held positions in the arts and government, including roles as the Deputy Communications Director at the Pompidou Center, Deputy Chief of Staff to the French Minister of Culture and Communication, and Technical Advisor to the Minister.
