The Manifesto 2019: Unlocking Responsible Luxury

The Manifesto illustrates a clear roadmap through 11 principles to integrate environmental and social responsibility in luxury supply networks.

There is a specific section dedicated to opinion leaders using their voices for change. From A New Awareness and United Nations Economic Commission for Europe to Orsola de Castro, Marina Spadafora, Coty Jeronimus and Cittadellarte, these exemplars show how to transform talks into actions. Further, there is a clear guidance on how to approach material innovation and circularity with WRAD and Lenzing being the exemplars.

Responsible Production is a specific section focusing on a leather supply chain with multiple actors. The Litehide case, on the other hand, shows how supply chain collaboration could foster environmental stewardship. Subsequently, there is one other comprehensive study: Roadmap to Zero Waste. POLIMI School of Management and Reclaim to Wear channel what must change within fashion supply chains and how textile waste problems could be tackled better. Beira, San Patrignano and Progetto Quid are covered as the exemplars to showcase how to create inclusive, transparent and circular stories by utilising unwanted materials. Beira, San Patrignano and Progetto Quid are our exemplars. The Manifesto also conveys a step by step guide to form a climate change strategy, a report created by Carbonsink.

The Manifesto 2019 reflects our vision for unlocking responsible luxury.
