In response, this week we launch our Sustainability Working Groups: online forums bringing together small groups of members - current Signatories of the Manifesto - from each of our sector categories to network and share best practice around our four pillars of sustainability:
1. Lead the transition towards a circular economy
2. Safeguard the environment and natural resources
3. Guide partners + suppliers towards sustainable practices
4. Advocate equal and respectful working conditions
Please click here to download the Manifesto, supporting presentation, press release and images from the launch.
Scroll down to see the 50+ members who are Signatories - including founding signatories, Burberry, Harrods, dunhill and Johnstons of Elgin - with their representatives pictured above at the Manifesto launch back in January 2020.
These are the Walpole member brands that have pledged their support to make British luxury a global leader in sustainability.
