Ensuring we support regionally relevant initiatives in communities where we have a presence is of utmost importance to us. Our activities will be further defined, but currently include investing in initiatives to help preserve cultural heritage, environment, and livelihoods.
WOMEN & YOUTH IN THE ARTS
Since 2017, La Prairie has been supporting artists from different cultures, nationalities, genders, and artistic practices for selected commissions. Additionally, La Prairie endeavours to support under-represented groups, such as women and youth in the art world, and will continue to build on this work supporting representation in the arts. More on our artistic and cultural collaborations can be found here.
GOLD PANNING COMMUNITIES OF COLOMBIA
As part of our membership with the Swiss Better Gold (SBG) Association, we are committed to supporting a more responsible source of gold by improving the working and living conditions of small-scale artisanal gold mining communities. In December 2022, we launched a multi-year collaboration to expand the mission of SBG to support artisanal smallholder communities as they adopt better social, operational and environmental practices.
TAKE-BACK RECYCLING PROGRAMS
La Prairie partners with various organisations across select locations globally to promote in-store take back recycling initiatives, enabling our clients to return their empty cosmetic containers to be recycled.
