Timeless by Design

{{BG_ALT}}

Timeless by Design is the next phase of our Global Citizenship & Sustainability approach, which aims to create positive social and environmental impact across our Company, our industry and broader society.

Our Timeless by Design philosophy has three pillars:

CREATE WITH INTENT

Since the inception of our Company, we’ve always believed in creating things that last. Today, we are embracing our philosophy of timelessness to create more responsibly – with more sustainable materials, according to circular design principles and by instilling cultural sustainability practices. With Timeless by Design, we are embedding timelessness from inspiration through to products’ every use and reuse across generations.

PROTECT THE ENVIRONMENT

We strive to operate our business in ways that respect our planet — such as using renewable energy, managing our waste properly and taking steps to preserve Earth’s most vital resource, water. By adopting practices that help protect the world’s natural sources, we can be stewards in protecting our environment for generations to come.

CHAMPION BETTER LIVES

Creating a business that is timeless and has a positive impact means building relationships that stand the test of time — ensuring everyone is included, respected and empowered. That’s why we’re committed to supporting our employees, our partners and those within our communities and working with them to build a bright future.
