Tiffany & Co Foundation

“My husband and I watched ‘Chasing Coral’ and I was overwhelmed with the devastation that is occurring.  I had heard a little bit of what was happening, but not on the scale that this documentary depicted.  I posted the link to my Facebook page and asked that friends please watch it.”

– Tiffany & Co Employee

Goal:

Tiffany & Co. and The Tiffany & Co. Foundation engage Tiffany employees around a commitment to coral conservation.

Location:

New Jersey & New York 

Key Highlights:

  • Engaged employees around The Tiffany & Co. Foundation’s legacy of support for coral conservation.
  • Facilitated discussion, led by leadership, to share sustainability priorities and build awareness of the current coral crisis.

Tiffany & Co. screened ‘Chasing Coral’ for over 400 employees based in New Jersey and New York City. The Tiffany & Co. Foundation, which supports coral conservation efforts worldwide, supported the film’s global outreach campaign. Along with the film, a discussion was led by the Foundation’s Chairman and President and Tiffany’s Chief Sustainability Officer, Anisa Kamadoli Costa, and Richard Vevers—founder of The Ocean Agency—who is featured in ‘Chasing Coral’.

Tiffany & Co. shared news of the film’s release via internal communications and encouraged employees to host screenings worldwide. In 2004, the company stopped selling coral, a precious species commonly used for decorative materials and jewelry. Tiffany & Co. is active in the global movement to combat climate change, and advocates for responsible climate policy. In 2015, the company made a commitment to achieve net-zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050. Tiffany & Co. has a three-pronged strategy to reduce, avoid and offset emissions towards its commitment. Tiffany has invested in energy-efficient lighting and green building practices, onsite solar energy production, and purchased renewable energy credits equivalent to 100% of Tiffany’s electricity use in the U.S. and more than 20 other markets, and carbon offsets that deliver social, environmental and economic benefits.
