THE POSITIVE LUXURY AWARDS: SHORTLIST ANNOUNCED

Featured Image-24

 

 

2023 will be a revolutionary year for luxury sustainability. As definitions of best practice continue to evolve at light speed, we will enter into a new era of accountability, innovation, and action. The Positive Luxury awards recognise the organisations driving this change – the organisations that go beyond compliance and shape a more sustainable future for us all.

 

Like our proprietary ESG+ assessment, the awards are unique in their focus on innovation in the luxury industry and they celebrate the full supply chain – from material suppliers and manufacturers, to brands and retailers. Judged by an independent panel that represents a cross-section of experts including academics, retailers, and industry executives, the awards are an opportunity for organisations to be recognised for their positive action, celebrate their inspirational peers, and build their profile as a leader in sustainability. Previous award winners include Bamford, Belvedere Vodka, and Monica Vinader.

The awards are open to all luxury brands, suppliers and retailers – not just Butterfly Mark certified businesses. For further information or support, please contact awards@positiveluxury.com
