Sustainability Practices

Carolina Herrera only uses a tiny proportion recycled materials such as recycled polyester and doesn't use any organic fabrics at all.

Most of her clothes contain natural fabrics without relevant certifications, such as regular cotton or linen, or synthetic petroleum-based fibers such as polyester and nylon.

Carolina Herrera also uses a small amount of semi-synthetic fibers or regenerated cellulosic fabrics such as acetate and viscose.

Carolina Herrera doesn't publish a list of all her manufacturers and processing facilities on her corporate website. She doesn't disclose how she shows her network of suppliers.

The 2021 Fashion Transparency Index gave Carolina Herrera a score of only 14% based on how much the group discloses about her social and environmental policies, practices, and impacts.

Carolina Herrera 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.

Carolina Herrera doesn't have a code of conduct that applies to all her suppliers and subcontractors based on the regulations set by the International Labor Organization (ILO).

Carolina Herrera doesn't provide any information regarding how often audits are conducted to ensure social standards and identify potential risk areas.

Carolina Herrera doesn't use exotic animal skin, hair, fur, or angora. But she uses leather, wool, and silk to manufacture many of her 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

Carolina Herrera doesn't show any measurement of its greenhouse gas emissions, water, land, and energy use, pollution, and waste across her supply chain. She doesn't have any clear sustainability goal or timeline to improve in the future either.
