I am pleased to send you the newsletter on the activities of the Centro de Estudios para el Lujo Sustentable [Center for Studies on Sustainable Luxury], which mission is to assist luxury companies in their transition to sustainability, encouraging sustainable business practices across all areas of the organization and its supply chain. This means taking a broader picture to ensure that social and environmental issues are completely integrated into the decision-making process.

In this issue, I would like to comment on the “second edition” (2012) of the Best Performance in Sustainable Luxury in Latin America Award and the next seminar on “Luxury Sector Strategy and Management.” 

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Best regards,

María Fernanda Tacchini

2. Seminar in "Luxury Sector Strategy and Management"

Many first class products and services are thriving in their countries of origin at times of economic hardships, which shows that they offer unique strategic and management opportunities and challenges.

This seminar –to be delivered in the first week of July- intends to give a general and specific vision to be able to rise to the challenges related to customer value generation and continuous change management with a view to improving the business value creation process. Any business organization in the luxury sector needs to be continuously adapting to new market conditions, keeping its own identity, which is a vital element for the entire brand architecture and soundness and, specially in the luxury sector brands, which along with (sustainable) innovation, are the key components of the current organizations.

Maria Eugenia Girón, Executive Director Observatorio de Mercado Premium y Productos de Prestigio de Instituto de Empresa (Spain) and member of the Advisory Board of the Centro de Estudios para el Lujo Sustentable and Miguel Angel Gardetti -Director of the Centro de Estudios para el Lujo Sustentable- will be the keynote professors of this seminar.
