At Lacoste, elegance is much more than what meets the eye. It is a principle, a state of mind. A way of being and behaving. It is the expression of beauty through action, whether made with a running start, in unexpected bursts, by way of incredible journeys or courageous and altruistic gestures.
Elegance makes us winners in victory as well as in defeat. It’s what distinguishes each of us beyond our social, geographical and cultural differences.
In a world that too often emphasizes what separates us, the elegance envisioned by Lacoste brings us together. It reaches across eras, cultures and oceans. It is a quality that can be recognized instantly, just as it stands the test of time. It serves as an aspiration for each of us — in our families, our careers, our everyday lives.
The Lacoste mission is to turn elegance into a universal value. This vision is achieved through three unwavering commitments: to people, to communities and to the planet.
These three essential pillars provide the structure for the first Lacoste sustainable development report. Discover it below.
Sustainable Development Report
To ensure elegance remains a universal value, Lacoste's ambition is twofold: to enable equal opportunities worldwide and to put in place principles for a more circular economy in the fashion sector.
To bring these ambitions to life, Lacoste is publishing its sustainable development report which attempts to define its progress in these areas and presents its roadmap and objectives until 2025.
At Lacoste, we want to liberate youth to realize their full potential. To help them excel, Lacoste is committed to promoting social and professional integration for vulnerable youth groups, by passing on values, skills and experience.
With all its suppliers, Lacoste works hard towards building a durable model for the industry. A vision of shared success in order for local communities to benefit from each other.
For the Planet
Alongside the Ellen MacArthur Foundation, Lacoste is committed to providing sustainable fashion founded on a circular economy. How? By preserving the planet's resources, using durable materials and sustainable manufacturing processes and a commitment to making products that last longer and can have a second life.
The Lacoste Foundation
Created in 2006 and supported by the Foundation de France, the Lacoste Foundation supports the social and professional integration of disadvantaged and disabled young people, particularly through sports and education. Its impact resonates around the world through partnerships with several local organizations.
