Ulysse Nardin has become the official timekeeper of The Explorers, an organisation that protects wildlife around the world.
The French organisation is currently running six specific preservation programmes: lemurs in Madagascar, turtles in Polynesia, red macaws in Honduras, radiated tortoises in Madagascar, crocodiles in Jamaica and humpback whales in Polynesia.
It is run by a team of scientists, filmmakers, cameramen, reporters, photographers, artists, designers, pilots, technicians, editors, musicians, programmers and community managers.
Ulysse Nardin’s parent company Kering has been a partner of The Explorers since 2019
“As part of the Kering group, Ulysse Nardin has an ambitious roadmap to reduce our environmental footprint by 2025. We have fully integrated this target in our corporate and business strategy”, says Patrick Pruniaux, CEO of Ulysse Nardin.
“Protecting our planet is part of our top priorities and we will make every effort we can to support those who nobly endeavor to achieve the same goal.”
In related news, Ulysse-Nardin has also been confirmed as the official timekeeper for one of the rare sporting competitions still on the calendar for summer 2020: the ocean race qualifier for the Vendée Globe, a solo non-stop yacht race around the world without assistance that is so challenging it has been dubbed The Everest of the Sea.
