Esprit was founded in San Francisco in 1968, at a time and place defined by the spirit of social engagement and environmental stewardship.
We aim to empower all people touched by our business, from those who make our products to those who sell and wear them, to live a more positive, more authentic life. We believe that authenticity means that our actions should align with our ideals. We believe that, despite our growth into a global brand, at our core we are a ‘real people’ company.
We have translated these principles into concrete sustainability commitments that are embodied within the focus areas of PEOPLE and PLANET. As part of this focus, we make the following commitments:
We are driving the transition to circular fashion. Circular Fashion seeks to manage the full life-cycle of our products, from design to the use phase of finished product and beyond, in a responsible and environmentally-friendly way. After the life of a product has ended, it shall return safely to the earth. We are committed to taking all necessary steps to minimize the impacts of the production of our garments, to use and reuse safe materials and to protect the ecosystem. We signed the 2020 Circular Fashion System Commitment of the Global Fashion Agenda. To meet our commitment, we are working on changes to our supply chain, which will remain in place beyond 2020. Please find more about these changes in our Product chapter.
