Corporate Social Responsibility
At Harrods, we are committed to operating our business in a way that drives positive change and creates a more sustainable future. Our Corporate Social Responsibility strategy touches every part of the business and is reinforced by our brand proposition, which challenges our employees to rethink what is possible in luxury retail through creativity and innovation.
Our Corporate Social Responsibility agenda is driven by bold initiatives that are designed to have a meaningful impact on our people, our customers, our local communities and our environment.
Our Approach to Sustainability
Our strategy – Harrods Path to a Sustainable Future – is built on four pillars, each working towards a clear sustainability goal aligned to Harrods’ people, products, partnerships and operations. Initiatives under each pillar are closely aligned with our broader strategy and values, ensuring that a commitment to becoming sustainable and responsible is part of our tapestry.
“We are on the path towards our ambitious plans to operate as a leading sustainable luxury business.”
“Harrods is a business that has always stood for the highest standards. As we look towards the future, it is clear that the most important standards we will be held to will be demonstrating how we as a business operate responsibly and sustainably, and with the lowest impact on the environment. We are on the path towards our ambitious plans to operate as a leading sustainable luxury business. We have made huge progress but will continue to push ourselves every day to improve and think big in our sustainability journey.”
– Michael Ward, Managing Director

Our sustainability logo represents the journey we’re on to drive positive change – protecting our planet, communities and people. Whenever you see it across our platforms and in our stores, you’ll know that you’re looking at one of our sustainability initiatives.
Our Sustainability Pillars
Our pillars establish sustainability goals which are aligned to our people, products, partnerships and operations, as well as a commitment to creating a meaningful impact in our local communities.
Operate as efficiently as we can, as soon as we can, with year-on-year reductions in our carbon footprint, responsible water and waste management, and improvements across packaging.
Uphold the highest standards with the products available at Harrods, embedding sustainable supply-chain management with our own-brand products, as well as encourage and support best practice with our brand partners.
Work together to ensure sustainable choices are at the heart of our business and our Employee Values, empowering colleagues to make more sustainable decisions and drive change at work, at home and on the move.
