The world’s biggest issues – from climate to inequality – intensify and change every year. More than ever, we need huge ambition and inspirational action to tackle these most pressing challenges. Positive Luxury believe luxury should lead the way.
Always setting new standards and creating new norms – luxury can drive real change for people and nature. The Positive Luxury Awards celebrate innovation, real change and higher standards across the supply chain – the brands, retailers or suppliers at the forefront of innovation taking serious, positive action.
Judged by an independent panel that represents a cross-section of experts including academics, thought-leaders and industry executives, the Awards are an opportunity for organisations to be celebrated for showing what is possible, recognised for their innovation and rewarded for sustainability leadership in the luxury industry. By celebrating those raising the bar, we inspire others to meet higher standards.
