Providing transparency throughout our supply chain by 2030 is a challenge we are tackling in order to align our values with those of our suppliers, reduce risk, and collaborate for a more sustainable future. Additionally, we are addressing critical raw materials* to ensure they are sourced following sustainable sourcing methodologies.
*Critical due to any negative impact they may have on the environment, biodiversity, or communities.
SUPPLIER RISK ASSESSMENT
In 2021, La Prairie began working together with Sedex, the globally recognised Supplier Ethical Data Exchange platform, to risk assess our direct suppliers across ESG (Environmental, Social, Governance) parameters.
SUPPLIER CODE OF CONDUCT (CoC)
In addition to assessing our suppliers via Sedex, they must also sign our CoC which requires monitoring of CO2 emissions and water use, human rights provisions and detailed health and safety requirements. La Prairie’s CoC was most recently updated in 2023.
CRITICAL RAW MATERIALS
Selecting and using ingredients wisely by working with sustainable sourcing programmes, we can confidently mitigate the risks posed by conventional sourcing of these raw materials. For example:
100% of the gold sourced for our formulas supports more responsible sourcing with artisanal gold panners in partnership with the Swiss Better Gold Association (SBG).
We use 100% Swiss-farmed caviar in our skincare products and have developed a more sustainable sourcing methodology in collaboration with the World Sturgeon Conservation Society (WSCS) and in consultation with the Aquaculture Stewardship Council (ASC).
