In 2017, we joined forces with the British Fashion Council and the Mayor of London to bring the fashion industry together to commit to SWITCH to a renewable energy supplier or to a renewable energy tariff by 2020.
Since then, all of our directly operated stores and offices in the UK have switched to a renewable energy provider. Our Italian boutique and office run on renewable energy, and we’re actively seeking alternatives in France. Our office and store in LA have been switched to 100% renewable energy, whereas our NYC store and office now run on 50% renewable energy, as 100% alternative was not currently available to us. We are aiming to switch to 100% renewable energy by 2023.
This ambitious climate action brought together twenty UK brands in its first year managing to source a total of 355 million estimated kilowatt hours from green energy. This is the equivalent of 125 tonnes of CO2 emissions being avoided across their Scope 1 and 2 emissions.
We are extending the campaign to our Scope 3 emissions and are supporting our supply chain partners in Italy to switch to a renewable energy supplier or tariff where one is not already in place, with our green energy partner èNostra.
