Sustainability is increasingly on the agenda for luxury companies as changing expectations of consumers, social media pressures and legal reform on sustainability reporting shape the future. A recent report by Boston Consulting Group found that if the fashion industry continued to improve its environmental and social performance, approximately 160 billion euros would be added to the global economy by 2030.
