Chopard’s Independence allows it to support crafts with a glorious past that are a source of great pride today. Together with the impetus provided by the Scheufele Family, this support of its Artisans also drives a boundless Creative Audacity that sets the Maison apart. An audacity that has led Chopard to pave the way for a new vision of Ethical luxury.
Family is the very heart of Chopard, representing its foundation, history and contemporary embodiment: it is the hero and herald of the Maison – yesterday, today and tomorrow. The Scheufele family, succeeding the Chopard family, represents the founding myth and unifying symbol of the Maison. Its members express the strength of kinship, solidarity and the ability to develop the firm in an enduring, consistent and fruitful manner. The family spirit stands for a sense of tradition, by exemplifying the permanence of the company origins, throughout its history and in the present; across several generations. This same spirit epitomises the human dimension governing both internal and external relations.

EMOTION & GENEROSITY
Impelled by a boundless passion for beauty and life, Chopard conveys a unique emotional dimension through the spirit of the Maison itself as well as in its precious objects. This applies as much to the wearer as the giver. Pleasure and Joie de Vivre are an inherent part of the Maison and ensure that Chopard creations consistently radiate positive energy, thus accompanying customers in the finest moments of their lives. This recognition of intrinsic personal value as well as that of others is symbolised by the heart, that iconic Chopard motif enlivening the Happy Hearts collection and representing the Maison’s extremely active philanthropic policy. Benevolence, altruism, positivity and generosity undeniably contribute to Chopard’s spirit of openness to the world and to broadening its sphere of influence. Against this background, the Maison has a daily commitment to generating even more emotions.
For Chopard, genuine luxury is synonymous with Ethics as well as with environmental and social responsibility, at all levels of its activity and with regard to its employees, its suppliers, its customers and indeed the planet itself. The Maison adopts an ethical approach to its activities that involves controlling the origin of the raw materials it uses as well as production methods – all of which is achievable because of its complete independence and vertical integration.
Within the framework of its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) policy and its “Journey to Sustainable Luxury”; the Maison has committed to a partnership with Alliance for Responsible Mining (ARM); use of Ethical Gold; the Green Carpet Collection; the RJC certificate for the Maison and its suppliers; adherence to the Kimberley Process, Minergie, etc.
Chopard is a pioneering leader in this field, thereby testifying to its strong involvement in contemporary matters and its keen awareness of social and environmental issues. The Maison thereby strives to make all its clients aware of the challenges of responsible luxury as well as encouraging the entire profession to improve sourcing and production criteria across the board.
