OUR STORY: POSITIVE BY NAME, AND NATURE

We were born to action real change, for a world that desperately needs it, and inspired by the large blue Butterfly which now thrives following near-extinction. This story of success took expert understanding of unique driving factors, and some difficult work – made easier through collaboration. Just as each ecosystem is entirely different, our Butterfly Methodology is a collection of tools and services that can be configured to each luxurycompany’s bespoke challenges and needs. That’s our approach. And why we are positive by name, and nature. Today we power a collective of over 170 luxury business across the globe: we call these the Real Changemakers, continually raising the bar.

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.
