Leading the change

We’re commited to Leading the Change to a better fashion future. This starts with improving sustainability performance in our own value chain and demonstrating the resilience of sustainable business.

We amplify our positive impact by working with others — showing the potential for innovation and dialogue to speed transformation. Leading the Change is a mindset. It influences everything we do and helps us to become fully circular and achieve net-zero climate impact, while being a fair and equal company.  

We focus on three key areas that maximise our impact:

  • Scale innovation. New materials, recycling technologies and  business models that promote circularity, improve resource use and enhance customers’ experience are needed to transform our business and the fashion industry. We identify, test and scale new solutions.
  • Promote transparency. Communicating openly and honestly about our business is vital for building meaningful relationships with colleagues, customers, investors, and others. Transparency alone does not improve sustainability performance, but creates accountability and comparability, pushing us to improve and encouraging others in our industry to do the same.
  • Engage and partner for industrywide progress. An important part of our approach is openly engaging with others within and outside our industry. Engaging with diverse perspectives challenges us to do better, accelerates innovation and supports our transparency efforts. Partnerships help us progress towards our sustainability ambitions faster than we could alone and have a positive impact beyond our own value chain.​
