Sep '17
Burberry has been included in the 2017 Dow Jones Sustainability Index (DJSI) in the 'Textiles, Apparel & Luxury Goods' sector, for the third consecutive year, reflecting the strength of the company’s commitment to continuously exploring more productive and sustainable ways of working. Burberry achieved industry best scores in innovation management.

The index is a trusted benchmark for investors who integrate sustainability considerations into their decision-making and investments. It is a significant global metric, evaluating economic, environmental and social factors.

Burberry is also a constituent of the FTSE4Good Index and the MSCI World ESG Leaders Index, participant in the Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP), signatory of the UN Global Compact, member of the Ethical Trading Initiative and Principal Partner of the Living Wage Foundation.

Burberry’s responsibility agenda “Creating Tomorrow’s Heritage” is a five-year programme focusing on three ambitious goals - Support one million people in the communities that sustain Burberry’s business and the wider luxury industry, ensure 100 per cent of Burberry’s products have at least one element that drives positive change, and invent new approaches to revaluing waste created in the production of luxury goods, whilst becoming carbon neutral in its own operations.
