The luxury brand’s three-year partnership with the University of Cambridge Institute for Sustainability Leadership (CISL) will create a sustainability leadership programme for employees and accelerate R&D for innovative ideas and prototypes. Chanel will also sponsor students from underrepresented backgrounds for CISL’s Masters in Sustainability Leadership.
The news follows LVMH’s announcement earlier this month that it is extending its existing partnership with Central Saint Martins to encourage innovation in the fields of regenerative design and biodiversity.
