SOCIAL COMMITMENT

STRENGTH THROUGH DIVERSITY


Historically, the color of our products has always inspired the entire philosophy of our brand, looking to a society where individuals and communities act with respect to diversity and the environment around them.

THE SOCIAL CAMPAIGNS


Our campaigns have opened the eyes of many people to the most pressing problems of our time, proposing concrete solutions to change our society in a positive way.

SUSTAINABLE CHAIN


We have always committed ourselves to products that respect the environment, animals and people all along the supply chain.

Detox Catwalk
We’re one of the leading brands of the Detox Catwalk, a special ranking made by Greenpeace which evaluates the progress of 19 global fashion brands striving for the elimination of toxic substances given off by products or in the supply chain.
Responsible Down Standard
The United Colors of Benetton collections are RDS certified (Responsible Down Standard): this means that the down feathers and padded jackets we offer come exclusively from geese and ducks that live freely and have not been never mistreated.
Organic Cotton
Our production includes an overwhelming amount of 100% organic cotton, cultivated without the use of chemical agents and therefore reducing its environmental footprint.

BENETTON FOR YOU


In 2015 we launched the Benetton for You program to offer our Italian office quality healthcare, easy re-entry after maternity leave and more freedom in balancing work and private life.

OUR COMMUNITIES


Our commitment begins with our city and the surrounding area. It is here that we have created a community network that can prosper, bringing benefits to the local community and engaging with the rest of the world.
