Burberry Beyond

We commit to continually evolve, innovate and defy convention to build a brighter future for generations to come.

As a brand built on the desire to explore nature and the great outdoors, our new strategy, Burberry Beyond, is our commitment to be a force for good through how we design, source, create and advocate.

We are determined to be a better company, to create a more sustainable future for luxury, and to have a positive impact on climate, nature and people.

This compels us to draw on our creative spirit, to evolve, innovate and, at times, defy convention.

It also requires us to enhance our metrics to track, guide and report on progress.

We have an industry-leading ambition to be climate positive by 2040

  • We have set science-based targets to reduce absolute carbon emissions across our own operations and value chain. Our targets have been validated by the Science-Based Targets initiative (SBTi) and are in line with a 1.5°C degrees pathway and the SBTi’s Net-Zero Standard
  • We commit to having 100% certified and traceable key raw materials by FY 2029/30

We will implement company-wide allyship training

  • Continue to take action to support our ambition to be a luxury brand that is inclusive of all
  • We will uphold our global bereavement policy, including for colleagues impacted by pregnancy loss

We will offer support for communities in need

  • Our updated Communities strategy is focussed on empowering young people to create better futures
