Newsflash: Gucci Goes Fur Free

Gucci CEO and President Marco Bizzari has made a commitment to what has been termed as the “Culture of Purpose” sustainability plan  during the recent 2017 Kering talk at the London College of Fashion. Bizzari unveiled the new “Culture of Purpose” ten-year sustainability plan, taking effect beginning with the pledge to go Fur Free, by working alongside the Fur Free Alliance by eliminating the use of animal furs from its Spring/Summer 2018 collection, moving forward.  Gucci will be organising a charity auction of any remaining animal fur items, with proceeds to benefit LAV and The Humane Society.

In line with this “Culture of Purpose” Corporate Social Responsibility intiative, the House is also contributing 1 million Euro as a founding partner of UNICEF’s Girls’ Empowerment Initiative which aims to reach out to more than 50,000 girls directly, and another 150,000 indirectly, with programmes developed and aimed at educating them regarding matters dealing specifically with women’s empowerment.
