Greenpeace calls out seven luxury houses’ environmental policies

Posted on

The environmental group assessed luxury Italian and French fashion houses according to three points linked to their supply chain: namely buying leather, pulp and paper (packaging) and water pollution. 

The verdict: only Valentino passed the test, with an environmental policy that got a “good” rating. The Italian brand has committed to phasing out toxic chemicals from its manufacturing processes and implementing ‘zero deforestation’ policies for its products.

However, Greenpeace deemed that Prada, Hermès, Dolce & Gabbana, Chanel, Alberta Ferretti and Trussardi failed completely as these brands “refused to even disclose information and did not make any commitments”.

Some fashion houses such as Dior, Gucci, Louis Vuitton, Giorgio Armani and Versace are hanging in the balance as their environmental policies are still lacking, getting a “poor” ranking. And although Roberto Cavalli provided the information Greenpeace demanded, the brand’s score came into the “unsatisfactory” category.
