Committed To Change
Francesca Mangano, Head of CSR & Sustainability
We still do not claim to be a 100% sustainable brand and our mission to become more responsible will always be ongoing. We take responsibility for the impact we have on the environment and we’re striving to reduce the footprint of our business and products.
We are committed to change.
For SS21, 47% of our collection incorporated elements of responsible materials. For AW21, 53% of our collection incorporated responsible materials.
FOCUSES FOR CHANGE
We want to be transparent about our progress so far, as we know it’s important for you to be able to make informed choices. As we move forward, we are focused on how we can do better to respect the planet and its people, source more responsible materials for our product, and improve the way we manufacture within our supply chains.
