Supplier relationship

The Armani Group believes that an active collaboration with suppliers is a fundamental part of improving the quality of the supply chain.

When signing a contract, all suppliers commit to respect, enforce and disseminate the best social and environmental practices with their suppliers, subcontractors and subsidiaries:


Open Supply Hub (list of factories updated within the past 6 months)


International Accord

Code of Ethics

Restricted Substances List

Sustainability code for suppliers


The Sustainability Code for suppliers provides each supplier with the most comprehensive and informative guidelines as possible, with regards to the containment of the environmental impact of all potential activities (from the selection of materials to their reuse) and in respect of human rights and working conditions of staff employed throughout the value chain.
The Armani Group carries out trainings and audits, based on a specific list in line with the Sustainability Code for Suppliers as well as with applicable laws and industry standards, to guarantee that suppliers comply with their provisions.

Since 2013, the Group has been monitoring and auditing its supply-chain regarding the observance of the ethical and social principles of environmental protection and safety as defined by the Group and by current legislation. The Group is finalizing an integrated traceability management platform and system, and currently the process of supplier qualifications is carried out by requiring receipt of the signed Code of Sustainability and through the analysis of risks connected to the geographical area and the sector where the activities take place. Furthermore, the Group requires documents, certifications and checks on compliance with environmental issues, human rights and health and safety in the workplace in relation to processes and products supplied.
Throughout 2021, around 70% of new suppliers were evaluated on the basis of social and environmental criteria.

70% of total suppliers were audited during the four-year period from 2018–2021
