As Gucci enters the next century of activity, it’s taking a strong position on corporate responsibility. From sustainability to philanthropy, Gucci is committed to its role in the global community.

It voluntarily obtained SA8000 certifications, focused on working conditions and practices. Dually, it’s actively involved in philanthropic initiatives that support both women’s and children’s rights and the arts.

In 2005, the House entered into a long-term partnership with UNICEF and since then has committed close to $20 million in support of the organisation’s women’s and children’s programs in Africa and Asia.

In 2013, Gucci founded Chime For Change, a global initiative dedicated to raising funds and awareness for girls’ and women’s empowerment.

Gucci also collaborates with the Kering Corporate Foundation in its efforts to combat violence against women.

On the cultural front, the company works closely with Martin Scorsese’s The Film Foundation to fund the digital restoration of cinematic masterpieces, such as La Dolce Vita and Once Upon a Time in America.
