French multinational luxury goods conglomerate LVMH recently announced teaming up with the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation (UNESCO) as a partner to the agency’s Man and Biosphere (MAB) inter-governmental scientific programme, which aims to safeguard biodiversity across the planet and achieve the UN Sustainable Development Goals.

The LVMH group will be present alongside UNESCO at major international events in the next two years. This agenda includes the 15th meeting of the Conference of the Parties (COP15) to the Convention on Biological Diversity in November 2020 in Kunming, China, according to an LVMH press statement.

LVMH and its different group companies will also rely on UNESCO’s scientific expertise to advance their sustainable sourcing programs via its network of 686 biosphere reserves.

The partnership will also facilitate the implementation of innovative solutions for natural and sustainable resource management and the identification of products and new markets centred on the quality and traceability of the materials used.

In addition, LVMH will contribute to scientific research projects led by the MAB and will make selected infrastructure resources available to help establish pilot sites for conservation and responsible long-term protection of biodiversity.

MAB’s major objectives include the reduction of biodiversity loss and addressing ecological, social and economic issues. (DS)
