LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton (Paris) has announced a five-year partnership with Vallée de la Millière, a 75-acre wetland located about an hour outside of Paris, home to more than 350 plant and animal species, WWD reports.

Vallée de la Millière is currently readying the wetland site for employee training and will host experiences for nongovernmental organizations, students and scientists beginning in 2024. LVMH plans to utilize this by providing biodiversity awareness and training for its roughly 200,000 employees.

Hélène Valade, LVMH’s Environmental Development Director, says the training programs will be tailored around employee functions. This includes procurement specialists evaluating suppliers of raw materials, sales associates responding to customer inquiries about a product’s eco credentials and logistics specialists navigating the most eco-friendly modes of product transport.

“Each employee can be an actor of change, and providing expert training is key … I think this amazing place will enable a reconnection with nature,” Valade said during the Change Now environmental summit that took place in Paris.



When the Kids Have Their Own Careers, Wilkerson Can Help You to Retire

Alex and Gladys Rysman are the third generation to run Romm Jewelers in Brockton, Mass. And after many decades of service to the industry and their community, it was time to close the store and take advantage of some downtime. With three grown children who each had their own careers outside of the industry, they decided to call Wilkerson. Then, the Rysmans did what every jeweler should do: They called other retailers and asked about their own Wilkerson experience. “They all told us what a great experience it was and that’s what made us go with Wilkerson.” says Gladys Rysman. The results? Alex Rysman says he was impressed. “We exceeded whatever I expected to do by a large margin.”
