Bernard Arnault, chairman and CEO of LVMH, said: “LVMH achieved outstanding results during a six-month period of ongoing economic and geopolitical uncertainty. The strong creative momentum and excellent distribution of our Maisons continued to inspire dreams, as demonstrated by the enthusiastic reception given to Pharrell Williams’ first fashion show for Louis Vuitton as well as the reopening of the New York “Landmark” of Tiffany & Co. We continued to see progress relating to our environmental, social and societal commitments, most notably in the recent announcement of an ambitious water sobriety plan intended to reduce our overall water consumption footprint by 30% by 2030. Thanks to the desirability of our brands, we approach the second half of the year with confidence and optimism but will remain vigilant within the current environment and count on the agility and talent of our teams to further strengthen our global leadership position in luxury goods in 2023.”
