GUCCI PLANS CARBON NEUTRAL MILAN FASHION WEEK SHOW
Style & Sustainability.
Always a label making moves in the right direction, Gucci recently announced their next eco-friendly plan to make their pending Milan Fashion Week show entirely carbon-neutral.
Part of a wider project across the company to ensure better environmental practice, the show’s carbon footprint will be offset by methods such as the use of recycled wood in set design and Forest Stewardship Council certified paper invites. Speaking to the New York Times on the plans, Gucci Chief Executive Marco Bizzarri elaborated;
“The only way we can have zero emissions is to shut our business. At the end of the day, our company makes things, and we employ thousands of people with families and communities to do that. We need to think up the best ways of supporting our employees to do their jobs in the most sustainable way possible.”
Gucci’s Milan show will take place in the Italian fashion capital later this month.
