In October 2018, the luxury label joined the likes of Stella McCartney and H&M in signing the New Plastics Economy Global Commitment, which aims to reduce global fashion waste.
One of the biggest goals of the project is to ensure that all packaging used by major fashion businesses is recyclable by 2025 – something that Burberry has already been acting upon.
According to a new report, Burberry will ensure that all of their future packaging is either reusable, recyclable or compostable.
By the end of 2019, the fashion giant also plans to give customers the opportunity to recycle their unwanted hangers in a take-back scheme.
Burberry – led by chief creative officer Riccardo Tisci – has also joined forces with Renewable Energy 100, which is a global initiative with more than 100 businesses committing to renewable energy consumption.
Burberry’s plans to eliminate plastic further demonstrates their commitment to a more sustainable future, as the company banned fur and the burning of unsold goods last year.
