International agreements and
working groups

The Armani Group is part of the SMI (Sustainable Markets Initiative) Taskforce, an initiative launched in 2020 by Charles, Prince of Wales, to develop a Digital ID that provides customers with information regarding product circularity and sustainability.

The Armani Group is amongst the signatories of the Fashion Pact, a joint document signed by some of the most important international fashion and luxury companies. Aimed at protecting the planet, it was promoted by French President Emmanuel Macron and presented at the G7 in August 2019. This important initiative demonstrates the Armani Group’s desire and serious, concrete commitment to addressing issues related to the environment.

The Fashion Pact’s objectives are centered around three main areas:

Climate

Biodiversity

The Oceans

For many years, the Armani Group has actively collaborated with the Camera Nazionale della Moda Italiana (CNMI) and participated in its programs. In 2016, the document “Guidelines on the eco-toxicological requirements for articles of clothing, leather goods, footwear and accessories” was drawn up. It laid out plans to progressively reduce the Group’s use of chemical substances in the supply chain.

In 2018, the “Guidelines on the eco-toxicological requirements for chemical compounds and industrial waste from manufacturing companies” was published.

Since 2018, the Group has also taken part in CNMI’s Commission on Public Sustainability. In collaboration with the Fair Wage Network, the commission launched a pilot project to map out the salaries and working conditions in the supply chain of the Italian luxury sector, by conducting a survey of 45 select suppliers. In 2020, the project’s results were published in CNMI’s “Report on Public Sustainability: a survey on wage practices amongst luxury fashion suppliers in Italy”, along with a road map that aims to promote the adoption of fair wage practices throughout the supply chain.
