KORS LOVES OUR PLANET

Our commitment to reducing our environmental impact takes many forms—from increasing the amount of lower-impact materials used to craft our products, to promoting circularity through our resale marketplace. We know there is more work to be done, but we are proud to share where we’re at on our sustainability journey.

LOWER-IMPACT MATERIALS

LOWER-IMPACT MATERIALS

We prioritize innovative, lower-impact raw materials that do not compromise on style or quality. And we want to help you shop with sustainability in mind.

That’s why we’ve introduced our KORS LOVES badge to give you more insight into the materials used to craft Michael Kors products. All products that feature this badge are either:

CRAFTED FROM AT LEAST 50% ENVIRONMENTALLY PREFERRED MATERIALS, SUCH AS RECYCLED FIBERS AND ORGANIC FABRICS

MADE WITH LEATHER FROM CERTIFIED TANNERIES MEETING THE HIGHEST STANDARDS OF ENVIRONMENTAL PERFORMANCE, INCLUDING TANNERIES ACHIEVING GOLD- AND SILVER-MEDAL RATINGS FROM THE LEATHER WORKING GROUP

CLIMATE ACTION

Climate change affects us all and we’re committed to doing our part to foster a more resilient planet. Not only are we working to reduce our greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by operating our stores more efficiently, but we’re also increasing our investment in renewable energy across the globe. Here’s a look at our progress so far:

GHG EMISSIONS REDUCTIONS RELATE TO OUR 2019 BASELINE COVERING THE PERIOD BETWEEN APRIL 1, 2018 AND MARCH 30, 2019. WE MEASURE AND CALCULATE OUR GHG EMISSIONS USING A MARKET-BASED CALCULATION, ACCORDING TO THE WORLD RESOURCES INSTITUTE GREENHOUSE GAS PROTOCOL. RENEWABLE ENERGY INVESTMENTS INCLUDE SELF-GENERATED RENEWABLE ELECTRICITY AND PURCHASED ENERGY ATTRIBUTE CERTIFICATES.

CIRCULARITY

Often, what goes around, stays around. So we created a resale marketplace to help promote circularity, reduce waste and give pre-owned pieces a new beginning. On Michael Kors Pre-Loved, you can sell items you no longer use and find coveted styles from seasons past. And you can shop rescued Michael Kors products that have been expertly refurbished so they’re ready for a second life.

PACKAGING

PACKAGING

We know our customers care about sustainable packaging—and we do too. Our goal is to reduce the amount of packaging we use, increase the recycled content of those materials, and always prioritize options that are easily recyclable once you’re done with them. Today, 99% of our store packaging is recyclable or sustainably sourced. And the work continues.
