Sustainability Practices

Viktor&Rolf wants to stand up for the planet and make environmental commitments. It's looking for less harmful solutions for its products and packaging.

The designer label invests in environmentally friendly materials, innovative techniques, and research and development to incorporate more sustainable solutions in its supply chain.

However, Viktor&Rolf only uses a tiny proportion of sustainable and natural materials such as organic cotton and jute.

The luxury brand also uses some semi-synthetic regenerated fibers such as lyocell, viscose, modal, and acetate made from renewable materials.

Thankfully, many of the brand's fabrics contain recycled materials such as ROICA elastane, recycled polyester, and regenerated nylon.

Viktor&Rolf has a code of conduct that applies to all its suppliers and subcontractors based on the International Labor Organization (ILO) regulations.

However, the brand doesn't provide any information regarding how it chooses its suppliers. It doesn't state how often audits are conducted to ensure ethical and sustainable production, ethical working conditions, social and labor standards, safety, and other important rights for workers in its supply chain.

Viktor&Rolf doesn't use any exotic animal skin, or hair, fur, angora. But it uses leather, wool, and silk to manufacture many of its clothing pieces.

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



Sustainability Goals

Viktor&Rolf aims to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions, plastic, water, and energy consumption in all its operations.

The designer label has joined the Fashion Pact in early 2020. It's a global coalition of companies in the fashion and textile industry committed to stopping global warming, restoring biodiversity, and protecting the oceans.

However, Viktor&Rolf doesn't measure its greenhouse gas emissions, water, land, energy use, pollution, and waste across the supply chain. It doesn't have any clear sustainability goals, science-based targets, or timelines to improve in the future.
