Leonardo DiCaprio Brand Ambassador for TAG Heuer
In a unique three-year agreement that is more of a synergistic partnership than commerce, TAG Heuer announced on January 29 2009 Leonardo DiCaprio as its Brand Ambassador with the royalties generated from the deal going to support the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) and Green Cross International.
Actor Leonardo DiCaprio has a long history of environmental philanthropy. Co-writer, co-producer and narrator of The 11th Hour, a well-received 2007 documentary on the world’s eco-system, DiCaprio speaks regularly on ecological issues and is a prominent board member of NRDC.
DiCaprio’s commitment to sustainability and children in need will be the cornerstones of his partnership with TAG Heuer over the next three years. In addition, a multi-million dollar commitment from Mr. DiCaprio will go to support environmental charities.
“TAG Heuer is a strong brand with a proven commitment to doing good,” said DiCaprio. “It is a great day when a company as respected as TAG Heuer explores a different way to do business—selling products and giving back at the same time. I’m very excited to start this new partnership."
