Sustainable development

Ulysse Nardin is committed to the sustainable development policy implemented by the Kering group, which owns the Brand. Watches by Ulysse Nardin meet the strict criteria of Swiss fine watchmaking and their manufacturing conditions are in line with the principles of sustainable development. Ulysse Nardin’s commitment to environmental and social responsibility is one of the key elements in the brand’s development strategy.

Social responsibility

Social responsibility encourages companies to pay particular attention to working conditions and – within the watchmaking industry – support the métiers d'art (artisan crafts).

Ulysse Nardin enters into this dialogue with its suppliers and offers support to help them meet the criteria set out in the Kering code of ethics.

The Kering Foundation is fighting to end violence against women. Established in 2008, the Kering Foundation commits the group to an important subject, consistent with its activities and clientele, and on which the company has a decisive role to play, alongside public authorities and associations.

Like other brands in the Kering group, Ulysse Nardin develops its own social programmes in parallel with the actions of the Kering Foundation.

The Responsible Jewellery Council (RJC)

Ulysse Nardin has been a member of the Responsible Jewellery Council (RJC) since July 2019. The RJC is an international not-for-profit organisation bringing together members committed to promoting ethical, social and environmental practices carried out in a transparent and responsible manner in the watchmaking and jewellery industry, from the mines to the points of sale.

Ulysse Nardin’s future application for certification is aimed at validating its social and environmental responsibility activities and underscoring its commitment to upholding the highest ethical standards, both internally and with business partners.

The Kimberley Process

Ulysse Nardin applies control systems arising from the Kimberley Process, which fights against 'conflict diamonds'.

All the diamonds purchased by the Brand comply with the World Diamond Council System of Warranties bound up with the Kimberley Process.

The Kimberley Process places strict requirements on its member countries through official certificates, so as to check the provenance, exports and imports of rough diamonds.

Once cut, diamonds are accompanied by a declaration defined by the World Diamond Council System of Warranties, which must feature on all cut diamond invoices: "The diamonds herein invoiced have been purchased from legitimate sources not involved in funding conflict and in compliance with United Nations resolutions. The seller hereby guarantees that these diamonds are conflict free, based on personal knowledge and/or written guarantees provided by the supplier of these diamonds."

Responsible gold

The Kering Responsible Gold Framework (KRGF) was developed by Kering and its brands to establish an innovative and intelligent way of sourcing gold responsibly. Its principles are aimed at achieving a sustainable, environmentally friendly supply of gold, promoting favourable working conditions for miners and supporting mining activities through a dedicated fund.

In accordance with these standards, Ulysse Nardin actively supports the ethical gold industry. Since 2017, Ulysse Nardin has procured all its gold responsibly via the KRGF, which offers a mixture of recycled Chain-of-Custody (CoC) certified gold and/or gold from certified/verified artisanal sources (Fairmined, Fairtrade or Kering certified mines).

Environmental Profit & Loss Account

The Kering group have developed a new way to enhance the potential of their economic activity and give power to the imagination.

The Environmental Profit & Loss Account (EP&L) is an innovative tool that measures the environmental impacts of a company, both internally and throughout its entire supply chain, and then presents these impacts in monetary values.

This approach allows for a true understanding of the global cost of its actions and places sustainable development at the heat of the company’s decisions in order to permanently reduce their impact on the environment.
