Throughout our history, we have been inspired by nature and the outdoors, enabling explorers and innovators to open new spaces and unlock endless possibilities. Our ambition, driven by our purpose and values, is to do well by doing right.

Through creating luxury products made to last, tackling the climate crisis and empowering our people and communities around the world, we can work together to secure a better future for our industry, our planet and generations to come. 

Our latest Responsibility strategy, Burberry Beyond, encompasses everything we do across our Company, our supply chain and our communities to create a better world for the next generation. As the modern British luxury brand, we are committed to acting responsibly as a business to achieve our goals.

We have set ambitions across four priorities, supported by 12 targets against which we track progress against to create lasting change.

Product: Responsible craftsmanship

Product: Responsible craftsmanship

For over a century and a half, we have carefully crafted products made to last. From the materials we use, to the aftercare services we provide, we are committed to increasing the longevity of our pieces for our consumers. In addition, we are consistently improving and innovating our manufacturing processes. Working across our value chain, we are focused on sourcing certified key raw materials, embedding circular business models across Burberry and eliminating plastic from our packaging.

Planet: Become Climate Positive

The climate crisis, water security and biodiversity loss are significant challenges faced by businesses and society at large. Our ability to deliver on our climate and nature commitments over the coming years will determine the long-term success of our business, so it is vital that we play our part. We aim to be Climate Positive by 2040 and we have set science-based targets to reduce absolute emissions across our own operations and value chain. We are also committed to protecting nature and ensuring our product footprint does not contribute to deforestation.

Communities: Positively impact young people

Burberry is a responsible company: we believe in doing the right thing by our people, our customers, the communities we touch and the world around us. Our values of being creatively driven, forward thinking, open and caring, and proud of our heritage, are deeply embedded in how we operate and have been core to our brand since the Company was founded by Thomas Burberry in 1856. We continue Thomas Burberry’s altruistic legacy today by supporting young people, championing our communities and collaborating with organisations to make a positive impact on the world. The Burberry Foundation, an independent charity set up in 2008 by Burberry Group plc, is focused on empowering young people, particularly those from underrepresented communities, to create better futures.
