Over the last two years B&C Collection has taken huge strides in becoming a more sustainable business, and this year the brand has published its first sustainability report.
In 2021 B&C became a signatory to the United Nation Sustainable Development Goals to guide it towards becoming more sustainable, and earlier this year four in-house staff members were appointed to focus entirely on sustainability issues.
Also, this year, B&C launched a brand-new label called Inspired Tomorrow to reflect the brand’s holistic vision. This label comprises 28 products made of more sustainable material.
Key 2021 achievements highlighted in the report include:
