PARIS – The ‘monetary value’ of luxury brand Kering’s environmental impact in 2018 was €514m according to the company’s latest environmental profit & loss (EP&L) report. This is made up of air emissions (€36m), GHGs (€174m), land use (€162m), waste (€32m), water consumption (€38m) and water pollution (€71m).
