“The philosophy underpinning my brand has always been sustainability: through my work, I offer clothes that last and can be worn for many years […]. It is vital to adopt a sustainable position nowadays. The question of ethics even comes before strategy.” – Giorgio Armani
For the Armani Group, being a brand that symbolises fashion and luxury means knowing how to create unique products, combining aesthetics, quality and innovation with a strong system of values.
Not only is the Group known for the inimitable hallmark style of its products, but also for the principles guiding its actions, which are laid down in its Code of Ethics. These principles are inspired by the concept of substance and the conviction that sustainability means, first and foremost, creating a system capable of enduring through time, with respect for all the resources that the Group draws on and with the awareness that the future of generations to come depends on the choices of today.
Not only is a change in the fashion industry desirable, it is necessary. The Armani Group intends to make a concrete contribution, both directly, by taking action within its value chain, and collectively, by making its experience available to initiatives promoted by institutions and business groups in the sector.
At Converse, social commitment is not a program or a service, but one of the pillars of their identity. They want to encourage their employees to act responsibly, contribute to the well-being of the communities where they live and work, and improve the environment.
That's why Converse is introducing the Converse Renew collection: unique sustainable sneakers and eco-friendly clothing.
For this, they worked with Beyond Retro, a sustainable fashion brand and vintage clothing retailer based in the UK, to choose the perfect denim, whether it's dark, medium or light. The fabric is then cut and sewn to form the upper. The Converse Renew canvas collection combines the iconic spirit of the Chuck with a canvas made from 100% polyester from used plastic bottles. Recycle your plastic into a Chuck! Converse Renew is an ongoing commitment to make all products more innovative and sustainable.
Let's all find new ways to renew what we do.
At Karl Lagerfeld, we are passionate about sustainability. We have sustainability ambassadors in all areas of the business and look carefully at how we can increase our positive impact, through our collections and all brand initiatives.

The L'OCCITANE Group has developed an efficient and sustainable manufacturing process. They transform the best natural and organic ingredients into desirable products with minimal impact on the environment.
From sourcing raw materials, to extracting and developing innovative formulas in the laboratory, to mixing ingredients in the factory, their specialized teams work tirelessly to ensure smooth operations and high customer satisfaction.
With this in mind, for years they have been progressively reducing the packaging of their products and aiming to increase the percentage of recycled plastic in their bottles, currently standing at 30%, with the goal of reaching 100% by 2025. In order to affirm this approach, two new eco-refill references using up to 90% less plastic than the original containers will be launched very soon. Finally, they have also set themselves the goal of moving from the current 84% to 100% of technically recyclable plastic bottles by 2025, while continuing to work with specialized suppliers to design lighter packaging that gives priority to recycled materials.

3 commitments on the Marseille soap :
1/ A solid product without packaging
A solid product to save water, and a sale in bulk of the naked product to limit the production of packaging and waste.
2/ A simple and natural composition
Their authentic Marseille soap is made in Salon de Provence with only 4 ingredients, no more, no less.
3/ An improved traditional manufacturing process
At Rampal Latour, their Marseille soap is cooked in a cauldron according to the historical process called "Marseillais".
However, this process has been improved, modernized and patented in order to consume 4 times less water and 7 times less energy during production.
Scotch and Soda wants to make a positive contribution and reduce their environmental impact, so they partner with Trees for All to plant trees for their communities in Netherland and worldwide. Trees For All has already planted more than five million trees and bushes, working to reforest and restore 32 forests and helping to absorb 320,000 tons of carbon dioxide. But their mission (and ours) is far from over: every new tree planted counts.
With quality and comfort at the heart of their philosophy, Scotch & Soda chooses superior materials to make their clothing sustainable. To make a positive contribution to society and reduce their impact on the environment, the careful choice of materials they use is central to the creation of a garment and then to the sourcing. Each season, they increase the proportion of organic, recycled and regenerated fibers in their collections. More respectful of the environment than their traditional alternative, they represent a more reasonable choice.
Concerned about preserving the world of tomorrow, for several seasons now, Suncoo has turned to new projects in favor of a more responsible fashion and a more environmentally friendly production. Since their creation in 2010, they have advanced step by step by first imagining on winter 2017 a faux-fur as an alternative to real fur and then by formalizing in 2019 a commitment with PETA France to no longer use animal fur. The commitments have also resulted in the gradual introduction of recycled polyester and organic cotton in their collections and the desire to use more natural materials, particularly linen and cotton.
Today, as a fashion player, they wish to go even further by sharing with you their commitments, everyday gestures and more ambitious actions that are close to their hearts and unite their passionate and committed employees. It is a new step and a new story that is being created with you. Because the future is in our hands and we are the key players of tomorrow: The Future is NOW!
