Responsible Sourcing for Bvlgari Fragrances

Bvlgari has committed to reducing its carbon emissions across its entire fragrance value chain. To achieve this, Bvlgari applies eco-design practices to fragrances and packaging, works to reduce air transportation and provides environmental training to its employees.
In line with Bvlgari’s devotion to protecting natural resources, the Maison invested in the Flower Gems of India initiative, a collaboration with perfume designer Firmenich and its local partner Jasmine Concrete, to create a new farming model for family-owned jasmine farms in Tamil Nadu, India. Since 2019, this alternative approach to jasmine production, securing high-quality jasmine while making a positive social and environmental impact, has served as a model and has been replicated among more than 100 farmers. As a key partner in this project, Bvlgari helped implement permaculture through a training programme that restructured the way farmers grow jasmine and provided them with the tools to grow their own vegetables and raise livestock to diversify their incomes.

Responsible sourcing

With regards to Bvlgari’s engagement with its suppliers, the company requires all its suppliers to sign a Supplier Code of Conduct and mandates yearly audits to ensure that working conditions and environmental standards are respected and international regulations followed.
When it comes to sourcing of raw materials, Bvlgari strives to track the ingredients it uses from their source to production sites. Besides sourcing natural ingredients with care, Bvlgari has been committed to responsible sourcing of palm oil derivatives and cardboard packaging for many years. Today, all consumer-facing cardboard packages are FSC certified (FSC® N003847) to ensure they support responsible forestry.

Eco-design packaging

Some of Bvlgari’s existing creations have embarked on a responsible packaging journey. The Bvlgari Allegra Eaux de Parfum are evidence of the Maison’s sustainability philosophy and commitment to craftsmanship, paying homage to the art of glass-making with 96% of the 100 ml and 50 ml bottles being made of glass. Eco-design of the bottle was extended to the entire packaging, with over 70% of the materials used to create the collection’s outer packaging (100, 50 and 40 ml) coming from recycled and upcycled materials. Working with a trusted partner, the leftover fibre from Sicilian lemons is upcycled into high-quality paper used in the collection's luxurious packaging. The virgin fibres in the paper and cardboard are renewable and FSC®-certified (FSC® N003847) in support of responsible forestry.

The Bvlgari Man collection is another step toward the Maison’s commitment to sustainability with increased recycled-glass content, reduced raw materials consumption and improvement in point of sales materials.
