In 2020, we launched the Walpole British Luxury Sustainability Manifesto: an ambitious and comprehensive aim to support the British luxury sector in lowering carbon emissions, reducing environmental impacts, and ensuring more sustainable future growth. Since launch, 70 Walpole members have joined founding signatories Burberry, Mulberry, dunhill, Johnstons of Elgin, The Savoy and Chivas Brothers in support of the manifesto – all of whom share an ambition to make the UK’s luxury sector the most sustainable in the world.
A central pillar of the British Luxury Sustainability Manifesto was to create category-specific Working Groups, bringing together the sustainability leads across the Walpole membership with a goal to enable collaboration, share experience and best practice, combine resources and align on areas of joint action with the mission of accelerating the pace of change towards a more sustainable future for luxury in the UK.
We are now delighted to share the key insights gained from these Working Groups through the launch of our Sustainability Report, which we will discuss in this webinar with our panel of speakers: Anna Bartle, Estee Lauder Group; Charlotte O'Sullivan, Mulberry; and Sam Dent, House of Hackney. Join us as we revisit the four pillars in the Walpole Manifesto, and how brands are working towards achieving their goals, one step at a time.
