We subscribe to the principles of conscious capitalism. This means that we believe that profit, sustainability, and achieving social good are not opposed to one another. We believe organisations need to push beyond just corporate and social responsibility and develop values-based economic values that represent social and environmental concerns at both global and local scales. This means that our social and environmental commitment is not just something we think about every once in a while and is solely the responsibility of just one part of the business, but that a conscious and ongoing consideration of social and environmental impact is embedded into our daily practices. As we continue to grow we look forward to bringing our values to life in the most powerful way we can.
When it comes to our commitment to our Planet, our entire supply chain model is designed around creating the smallest possible carbon footprint, ensuring the journey from factories to final consumer is as short as possible. Furthermore, extensive research is done to ensure partner tanneries and mills are committed to eliminating processes that pollute the environment and as many leathers as possible are selected on the basis that chromium-free tanning processes are used. We use components that are recyclable and bio-degradable. Our luxury packaging is recyclable and sustainably sourced. Relationships with suppliers are about much more than doing business together – it is about a shared ethical philosophy. We never stop looking for ways to design business practices that continuously minimise our environmental impact, to create a healthier planet for our children and generations to come.
Our team members are all committed to giving back to our local communities in some way. This includes everything from board roles to hands on volunteering for local not-for-profits committed to improving the quality of life for those most in need. As we grow we look forward to establishing a foundation and dedicating further time and resources to creating good in our local community and wherever we may operate in future.
