Our Provenance

Positive Luxury’s origin lies in the chance meeting of Sir David Attenborough and co-founder Diana Verde Nieto, his inspiring story of the Large Blue Butterfly – which died out in the British Isles in 1979 – and the dedication of the scientist who successfully reintroduced it by unravelling the intricate web of interdependencies necessary for its survival.

Identifying the luxury industry as one that could drive enormous positive change, Diana and serial entrepreneur Karen Hanton founded Positive Luxury and the Butterfly Mark certification in 2011.

Mission

Our mission is to shape a sustainable future for luxury by redefining the business model and rebuilding consumer trust.

Vision

From the supply chain to the end product, we envision a future where the core principles of luxury and sustainability are fully and genuinely symbiotic.

Our Sustainability Council

We work together with our Sustainability Council to ensure that our assessment is rigorous, independent, and in line with international standards and best practices. The council is comprised of experts across multiple disciplines from over 22 leading global organisations.
