Today, the Business Intelligence Group presented GUESS? Inc. with the 2023 Sustainability Leadership Award and Carlos Alberini, Chief Executive Officer, with the Sustainability Hero Award in the 2023 Sustainability Awards program. The Sustainability Awards honor those people, teams and organizations who have made sustainability an integral part of their business practice or overall mission.
For GUESS, being a sustainable company means showing the utmost respect for nature. The iconic brand is taking active steps to address impacts on the environment by creating new pathways to reduce their footprint, encourage a circular economy, and choose materials wisely.
“GUESS is honored to be recognized by Business Intelligence Group in the 2023 Sustainability Awards program. With the support of [Founder and Chief Creative Officer] Paul Marciano, we challenged the brand to put sustainability first by reducing carbon emissions, expanding on the commitment to using sustainable materials, and continuing the Company’s dedication to fair treatment and pay parity,” said Carlos Alberini. “Being a part of this journey has been rewarding in itself. We are truly grateful for our team’s hard work and are excited about our continued transformation to become a more sustainable business and brand.”
GUESS recently released its FY2022-2023 ESG Report, highlighting 9 years of meaningful reporting progress and its sustainability commitments for the future, and included GUESS’ first ‘double materiality assessment,’ which was examined by KPMG.
“We are proud to reward and recognize GUESS? Inc. and Carlos Alberini for their sustainability efforts,” said Maria Jimenez, Chief Nominations Officer, Business Intelligence Group. “It was clear to our judges that their vision and strategy will continue to deliver results toward a cleaner, more sustainable world. Congratulations!”
