The Positive Luxury Awards 2020 will be a global celebration of sustainability and innovation within the luxury industry, the organisers say.
The awards recognise companies or individuals that are working towards affecting positive change in businesses and our world.
Positive Luxury is a website and network of luxury brands that also awards its ‘Butterfly Mark’ to award products that make a ‘measurable impact and commitment to sustainability.
The newly launched awards are an extension of these efforts.
CEO and Co-founder of Positive Luxury, Diana Verde Nieto, said “We are thrilled to be launching The Positive Luxury Awards 2020, that celebrates organisations embracing sustainability as a business strategy, beyond the supply chain.
“For that very reason, The Positive Luxury Awards will honour leadership in sustainability, awarding people and companies with unparalleled innovation that will affect positive and sustainable change in our world.
“I’m particularly proud to be working with the next generations of designers through a global competition with selected design schools awarding the winner with the privilege of producing the Positive Luxury Award”.
