#SQUADONAMISSION TO DO BETTER
SUSTAINABILITY: THE 2022 MISSION REPORT
At Breitling, we are a Squad on a Mission to do better. We are committed to doing our best to optimize the social and environmental impacts of our business within our sphere of influence. In our annual Sustainability Mission Report, you’ll find information about our overall vision for sustainability, as well as the key issues we're addressing.
CREATING POSITIVE IMPACTS ALONG OUR VALUE CHAIN
We‘re improving the social and environmental impact of our products by sourcing artisanal and small-scale gold, lab-grown diamonds, upcycled packaging, and sustainable straps. We are rolling out traceablity via blockchain-backed provenance records for our watches, starting with the Super Chronomat Origins and engaging our suppliers to increase their sustainability performance.
Solar Impulse Foundation: 1000 Solutions
The premise of Solar Impulse Foundation is that climate change can be tackled most effectively through the lens of profitability. In April 2021, the Foundation reached its goal of identifying 1000 solutions that are profitable for both the environment and our economy - reducing CO2 emissions, pollution, and the use of resources while at the same time creating jobs and growth. The Solar Impulse Efficient Solution Label is the only evaluation available today that certifies the economic profitability of products and processes that protect the environment. It is awarded following a rigorous evaluation process carried out by a pool of independent experts. Breitling’s new sustainable packaging has been named as one of the 1000 Solutions that can protect the environment in a profitable way.Discover Solar Impulse

Breitling is proud to support Qhubeka, a global charity that connects communities through bicycles across Africa. People earn Qhubeka bicycles through community programs, improving their access to schools, clinics and jobs. In the face of poverty, bicycles can change lives by helping to address socioeconomic challenges at the most basic level – helping people to get where they need to go. Since partnering with Qhubeka in 2018, Breitling's fundraising initiatives have resulted in over 2,000 bicycles being distributed to disconnected communities.Learn more about Qhubeka
