Chopard mira a ridurre al minimo l’impatto ambientale dei suoi impianti gestendo efficacemente l’utilizzo delle energie e dell'acqua, riciclando gli scarti pre-consumo e riducendo il packaging dove possibile .


We are committed to reinforcing action against climate change by minimising energy consumption and shifting to renewable sources. We are also committed to reducing and mitigating GHG emissions throughout our entire value chain, which includes our three production sites in Switzerland and in Germany, 14 subsidiaries, and more than 65 own-name boutiques.

Our Swiss facilities are supplied by 100% renewable electricity and in 2010, our Fleurier Ebauches production site became the largest renovated building in Neuchâtel, Switzerland to receive the low-energy-consumption Minergie certification. In addition, specific measurement systems are in place to monitor VOC emissions, as well as water and electricity consumption.
In 2013, our Maison signed an agreement with the Swiss government, setting targets related to energy consumption and significantly lowering CO2 emissions. The complete energy transition from fuel oil to gas, window insulation, widespread fitting of LED lights as well as other infrastructure renovation procedures strongly contributed to the reduction of CO2 emissions.

In order to mitigate the impacts stemming from employees’ commuting, our Maison is a member of the Centrale Mobilité, which aims to work on solutions for reducing the number of individual cars through a shared transport platform, awareness campaigns and other initiatives.


L'acqua è la risorsa più preziosa del nostro pianeta. Da Chopard, ci impegniamo a gestire le risorse idriche in modo responsabile, non solo nei siti di produzione ma anche lungo tutta la catena di approvvigionamento. Monitoriamo tutti i volumi di consumo idrico e abbiamo implementato sistemi di riciclaggio dell'acqua nelle nostre strutture. Le acque di scarico sono trattate nel rispetto della legislazione locale.

Our water usage

Since 2019, Chopard installed a closed loop system for cooling the machines in one of the most impactful workshops, resulting in a drastic diminution.

We have also started conducting an assessment of our supply chains to investigate whether any of the key mines from which we source gold are located in water-stress areas.

Of four key gold mine suppliers located in Latin America, two are located in Arequipa, a region of Peru characterised by a high baseline water stress index (meaning the ratio of total water withdrawals to available renewable water supplies is too high). However, thanks to the fact that these mines are part of responsible sourcing initiatives (Fairmined certified or Better Gold Initiative/SBGA), actions have been undertaken to ensure that water is managed responsibly.

As a result, no negative impact is caused on the water supply available to local communities, with one of the mines in Peru even proving 100% rate of water reuse as well as collecting rainwater for its mining operations.

Environmental management
Use of chemicals

In order to minimise the environmental and health impacts caused by chemical substances, we have created an internal Committee tasked with the research and promotion of the use of alternative materials and substances.

Wherever possible, our Maison tries to replace chemicals and potential hazardous substances with lower-impact alternatives. For example, we have replaced the lubricants on 77% of all machinery with a lubricant free of any hazard symbols and therefore less harmful to the environment and human health.


Per ridurre il proprio impatto ambientale complessivo, Chopard monitora i rifiuti generati dalle proprie attività. Guidata dal motto RIDURRE - RIUTILIZZARE - RICICLARE, la Maison ha creato una serie completa di filiere di riciclaggio grazie alle quali raccoglie e riutilizza quasi 30 materiali diversi.


Da Chopard lavoriamo senza soluzione di continuità per migliorare i materiali utilizzati per il packaging di tutte le nostre creazioni. Le confezioni degli orologi e dei gioielli sono realizzate con materiali certificati dal Forest Stewardship Council (FSC), dall'Oeko-Tex e dal Programme for Endorsement of Forest Certification (PEFC).

Tutto il nostro materiale di marketing e comunicazione destinato alla stampa, così come i sacchetti e le confezioni utilizzate dalle nostre boutique, sono realizzati con carta certificata FSC.

Inoltre, cerchiamo di sostituire sempre di più i materiali che usiamo con materiali a basso impatto. Ad esempio, i cofanetti in legno di noce sono prodotti utilizzando legno certificato FSC, vernice e colla a base d'acqua, carta e cartone riciclati, nonché cerniere e sistemi di fissaggio in acciaio inossidabile riciclabili all'infinito. Le scatole della linea Animal World sono prodotte con legno FSC e seta naturale al 100%.
Our shopping bags have no lamination, thereby facilitating paper recycling, while cords are produced in soft-cotton, making them 100% plastic-free.
