Sustainability Practices

Brunello Cucinelli takes wide-ranging measures to reduce its consumption of energy and other resources, avoid waste, and combat climate change.

Brunello Cucinelli only uses a tiny proportion of organic materials such as hemp. It doesn't use many recycled materials, only recycled paper.

Most of the fabrics it uses are either natural without relevant certifications, such as regular cotton or linen, or synthetic petroleum-based fibers such as polyester, nylon, acrylic, and more.

Brunello Cucinelli also uses a little amount of semi-synthetic fibers or regenerated cellulosic fabrics such as lyocell, acetate, and viscose.

Brunello Cucinelli doesn't publish a list of all its manufacturers and processing facilities on its corporate website.

The 2021 Fashion Transparency Index gave Brunello Cucinelli a score of only 5% based on how much the group discloses about its social and environmental policies, practices, and impacts.

Brunello Cucinelli manufactures its clothes exclusively in Italy in 355 independent highly-specialised artisan workshops mostly based in close proximity to the factory in Umbria, and other slected Italian production sites.

The Italian clothing retailer doesn't show any labor certification standard that would ensure good working conditions, decent living wages, health, safety, and other important rights for workers in its supply chain.

Brunello Cucinelli has a code of conduct that applies to all its suppliers and subcontractors.

Brunello Cucinelli doesn't disclose how it assesses compliance with its Code of Conduct to improve the working conditions in its factories.

Brunello Cucinelli doesn't use any exotic animal skin, fur, or angora. But it uses leather, wool, silk, and down feathers to manufacture many of its clothing pieces.

These animal-derived materials are cruel and unethical. They also harm the environment by producing greenhouse gases and waste. More sustainable alternatives exist.

Sustainability Goals

Brunello Cucinelli has committed to reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 60% in terms of economic intensity, 70% in absolute terms for Scope 1 and Scope 2 emissions, 22.5% for Scope 3 emissions by 2028.

Brunello Cucinelli plans to use 100% FSC certified paper by 2023. It will also use 100% recycled paper and cardboard for packaging by 2023.

Brunello Cucinelli has started to use bio-compostable plastic bags and will completely replace plastic bags by 2022.
