To limit lighting needs, Longchamp’s workshops are designed to favor as much natural light as possible. The House also implements innovative insulation, heating, and air conditioning solutions to reduce its energy consumption. In 2021, Longchamp fully renovated the 8.000 m2 facades of its workshops in Segré. The triple glazing of the new high thermal performance facades also allows for more natural light. All Longchamp boutiques, as well as workshops, are gradually switching to LED lighting to reduce electricity consumption and heat input. For an international company like Longchamp, air transport, both passenger and freight, is a significant cause of greenhouse gas emissions. To limit its impact, all Longchamp employees around the world have given up flying for all their trips that don’t exceed 4 hours by train. In parallel, the company is developing teleworking and video conferencing solutions to reduce travel needs. To transport its goods, Longchamp favors maritime transport – recognized as the least polluting solution – and limits the use of air transport as much as possible. Regarding its road transport needs, the House favors service providers that try to reduce their environmental impact through the use of hybrid, electric, and natural gas vehicles. Since it was established, Longchamp has attached great importance to the architectural quality of its production sites and their integration into the surrounding environment. Over the years, 12,500 trees have been planted around our workshops, helping to further reduce their carbon footprint. The hedgerows typical of the landscape of western France are being preserved and maintained, benefiting biodiversity. Since 2019, another 85 different tree species have been planted, including a traditional high-stem orchard.
