Luxury label Chloé is officially B Corp certified.
In a statement, Chloé said it was “proud” to be the first luxury maison to achieve the certification, and to be joining a “community of leaders, driving a global movement of people using business as a force for good”.
“By becoming B Corp certified, we reinforce our ongoing commitment to taking accountability for our impact on people and the planet,” Chloé’s statement read.
“Rather than a final goal, this certification marks a new stage in our transformation towards a purpose-driven model, reinventing how we do business.
“B Corp will help us frame our transformation, and we hope to inspire other organisations in our industry to join the movement.”

Certified B Corporations go through a rigorous process to meet “the highest standards of verified social and environmental performance, public transparency and legal accountability to balance profit and purpose”, according to the B Corporation website.
“This certification is the result of over 18 months of collective work by our teams worldwide, staying true to our mission: Women Forward. For a Fairer Future,” said Chloé.
“We have decided to transform our operations and shift our mindset through efforts in everyday practices.
“As progress is an ongoing process, we will be regularly updating the Sustainability section on our website.”
