Jimmy Choo takes wide-ranging measures to protect biodiversity, reduce its consumption of water, energy, and other resources, avoid waste, and combat climate change.
It wants to be better and more efficient by looking at every aspect of its value chain to ensure the healthy functioning of our planet. However, the majority of its business remains detrimental to the environment.
Jimmy Choo only uses a tiny proportion of organic materials such as organic cotton or recycled materials such as recycled polyester and regenerated nylon.
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.
Jimmy Choo also uses a small proportion of semi-synthetic fibers or regenerated cellulosic fabrics such as modal, acetate, and viscose.
Jimmy Choo doesn't publish a list of all its manufacturers and processing facilities on its corporate website. It remains committed to driving greater transparency and accountability across its supplier base.
Jimmy Choo manufactures its products in many East Asian countries, where human rights and labor law violations happen every day.
The retailer doesn't show any labor certification standard that would ensure good working conditions, decent living wages, health, safety, and other crucial rights for workers in its supply chain.
Jimmy Choo has a code of conduct that applies to all its suppliers and subcontractors. It assesses compliance with its Code of Conduct by informal visits or third-party audits with or without notice.
Jimmy Choo doesn't use exotic animal skin, hair, fur, or angora. But it uses leather, wool, and silk to manufacture many of its products.
These animal-derived materials are cruel and unethical. They also harm the environment by producing greenhouse gases and waste. More sustainable alternatives exist.
Jimmy Choo plans to reduce its GHG emissions by 50% in Scope 1 and 2 and 50% in scope 3 (in the Purchased Goods category), by 2030. It aims to achieve carbon neutrality across its direct operations by 2025.
Jimmy Choo has set a target of achieving 100% renewable energy in its direct operations by 2025. It will ensure all the plastic it sources is recyclable, compostable, recycled or reusable by 2025.
Jimmy Choo has committed to rolling out circular design and materials trainings to its design and production teams in 2023.
It will also continue to improve upon the ways it measures water inventory throughout its supply chain to hold it accountable to its goal of achieving a 10% reduction in key suppliers' aggregate water use by 2025.
