Gucci’s president and CEO Marco Bizzarri recently disclosed details of the company’s new ten-year ‘Culture of Purpose’ sustainability plan along with its commitment to join the Fur Free Alliance eliminating animal fur from its products, beginning early next year. They will contribute Euro 1 million as a founding partner of UNICEFs Girls’ Empowerment Initiative.
This announcement came on the occasion of the International Day of the Girl on October 11, on which the 2017 Kering Talk was organised at the London College of Fashion.
The plan hinges on three pillars: environment, humanity and new models.
