Our Goals

From the very start of ésme studios we incorporated three of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals into the very heart of the business. We find they help us make sure we make sustainable and ethical choices every step of the way.

The three goals are:


Goal 8 - Decent work and economic growth
We believe everyone has the right to a decent place of work so we only deal with certified partners who ensure good working conditions for all their employees. This way we help to always improve the livelihood of everyone in our supply chain from farmers to factory workers.

Goal 12 - Responsible consumption and production
We believe that reducing our carbon footprint on the planet will make a better world for all of us.  With that in mind, we do our best to use only the most sustainable raw materials, whether they are recycled fabrics or responsibly produced natural fibres. We also want to slow down consumption so we deliberately produce only two main collections and two capsule collections each year. And by using only high quality materials, and styles that have timeless appeal, we increase each piece’s lifecycle: the longer it lasts and the longer it looks good, the more you will want to keep it and wear it again!

Goal 15 - Life on land
As well as our effort on working with these three goals, we are a member of the United Nations Global Compact which is an organisation that supports global companies committed to only do business with responsibility towards human rights, labour, the environment and counter corruption. By following their framework and initiatives we can help us all move towards a better world and that, after all, should be the ultimate goal.
