At Burberry, our purpose underpins the choices we make as an organisation. Enshrined in the statement Creativity Opens Spaces, our purpose is the shared belief that through creativity, we can push boundaries and explore new possibilities for our people, our customers and our communities. Being creatively driven, forward thinking, open and caring, and proud of our heritage are hallmarks of our organisation at its best. These values have remained at the core of our brand since Thomas Burberry founded the Company in 1856. Our commitment to ESG-related matters is the purest expression of our purpose and values. We are committed to building not only a financially stronger Burberry but also a better company that is a force for good in the world.


Disclosure plays a key role in driving meaningful change. By learning from others and sharing our progress, we can help drive accountability, for ourselves and for our industry. In FY 2020/21, we focused on three areas:
• Creating the conditions for creativity to thrive by championing diversity and inclusion and ensuring the wellbeing of our people
• Supporting our communities, and particularly young people, by providing them with the skills, confidence and opportunities to succeed
• Creating a more sustainable future for luxury by reducing our environmental impacts and helping transform our industry

We are recognised for our efforts around ESG, with highlights including:
• Dow Jones Sustainability Index: inclusion in the World and Europe Indices for the sixth consecutive year
• FTSE4Good Index: constituent
• Responsibility100 Index: ranked fifth in the FTSE 100
• Sustainalytics: negligible risk rating, ranked first in our industry (textiles and apparel) and sub-industry (luxury apparel)
• CDP: A List and achieved the Supplier Engagement Leader Award
• Included in the Bloomberg Gender‑Equality Index 2021
