Our sustainability statement:
We support fashion that is produced, consumed and sold in a responsible manner. We are convinced that this commitment will pay off for us all in the long run.
We want to achieve our science-based targets to reduce carbon emissions in line with the Paris Agreement, including an 80% reduction in emissions of our own operations compared to 2017. By 2023, we will design our packaging to minimize waste and keep materials in use, specifically eliminating single-use plastics.
We want to generate 20% of our GMV (Gross Merchandise Volume) with more sustainable products. Due to our progress we have decided to raise our target to 25%. We want to apply the principles of circularity and extend the life of at least 50 million fashion products.
We want to continuously increase our ethical standards and only work with partners who align with them. We want to support 10,000 people in the workforce by providing skilling opportunities that match future work requirements.
