Kering was awarded the Global Leadership Award in Sustainable Apparel (GLASA) for the development of the Environmental Profit and Loss account (E P&L) and its decision to implement this in its Luxury and Sport & Lifestyle brands. 
 
Kering’s E P&L is a pioneering natural capital accounting and reporting system that places a monetary value on the environmental impacts that result from a business’s activities not only within its own operations but along the entire supply chain.
 
The motivation
When Kering and its brand PUMA developed and published the first-ever Environmental Profit and Loss account in 2011 for PUMA’s 2010 results, the companies placed natural capital valuation on the agenda for the apparel industry and put forth a bold and inspiring vision for the sector. 
 
Kering has since refined and improved the E P&L methodology and is currently implementing E P&L’s in its 22 Luxury and sport & lifestyle brands, which means that the E P&L has evolved into a concrete management framework and financial tool that will be a benchmark for the entire industry. The jury awarded the 2014 GLASA to Kering in recognition of the group’s continuing bold and visionary leadership, and most importantly, for its long-term commitment to following through on what it has started.
 
“We are honoured to receive the GLASA Award for our E P&L and the work we are doing to promote Natural Capital accounting for businesses,” said Marie-Claire Daveu, Chief Sustainability Officer and Head of international institutional affairs, Kering. 
 
“We developed the E P&L so that we could have a deep understanding of our own impacts and dependencies on natural capital, but we also consider it essential for businesses more broadly to be accountable for their use of natural capital. This knowledge serves not only to minimize risks and impacts, but even more importantly to seize opportunities to create positive outcomes for business, environment and society.”
 
 The GLASA is a sustainability and leadership award. Launched in 2013, it aims to inspire bold and courageous leadership in the apparel sector and to mobilize key stakeholders around promising ideas or practices that can substantially improve sustainability performance in the apparel industry. The theme for the 2014 award is Natural Capital Accounting.
 
GLASA is an initiative from The Sustainable Fashion Academy (SFA) and it is supported by organizations like The Antonia Ax:son Johnson Foundation for Sustainable Development, Association of Swedish Fashion Brands (ASFB), and the Prince of Wales International Sustainability Unit.
