UK luxury brands trade body Walpole recently announced that 40 brands have now signed up to its manifesto to make the British luxury sector the 'global leader in sustainability'. Walpole launched its British Luxury Sustainability Manifesto in January this year, supported by its strategic partner McKinsey & Company, to set industry best practice aspirations.

The founding signatories were Harrods, Burberry, dunhill, Johnstons of Elgin, Mulberry and The SAVOY. Other signatories include Boodles, Asprey, Carrier, Cookson Adventures, Elegantes, Henry Poole, Lisa Redman, Pureprint, Votary and Miller Harris.

The manifesto focuses on four key pillars: lead the transition towards a circular economy; safeguard the environment and natural resources; guide partners and suppliers towards sustainable practices; and advocate equal and respectful working conditions.

The respective targets of the four pillars include tackling plastic packaging and circularity initiatives to extend product life and waste reduction; safeguarding the environment, addressing carbon emissions, renewable energy usage, water consumptions and discharge of chemicals; supply chain collaboration to focus on responsible sourcing and supply chain traceability; and compliance with human rights and labour laws, diversity and gender pay gap.
