EuroShop RetailDesign Award 2022

In 2022, the Green B concept, which debuted in Florence in March last year, was awarded the EuroShop RetailDesign Award 2022 in the "Sustainability" category. Since 2008, the EuroShop RetailDesign Award promoted by EuroShop (the world's leading trade fair for capital goods in the retail sector) has been awarded every year to the best store concepts in the world.

Last February, the Florence store, which stands out for a revolutionary approach with low environmental impact using sustainable materials and cutting-edge technologies for energy saving, won this prestigious award among 87 candidates from 28 different countries.

The award represents an important attestation for the commitment, in terms of research and innovation, by the Benetton Store Design, Engineering and Visual teams who have contributed to the realization of this ambitious project, guided by a 360° corporate vision that systematises a serious commitment to the environment.

Fashion Transparency Index

The 2022 Fashion Transparency Index assessed United Colors of Benetton’s commitment to publicly disclose credible information about its impact and operations in relation to social, environmental and governance issues. Published by Fashion Revolution, since 2013 the Fashion Transparency Index has been analysing the level of transparency of 250 major clothing brands and retailers, considering five categories: compliance with environmental and social commitments, governance of environmental and social policies, supply chain traceability, monitoring and remediation actions at suppliers, and the ability to deal with specific issues such as purchasing practices, gender equality, the use of sustainable materials, waste and chemicals management, circularity initiatives and the commitment to combat climate change.
United Colors of Benetton achieved an overall score of 63%, which is among the best ten scores globally. This is a big leap forward from just five years ago, when the brand’s score was 17%.
Among the categories analysed by the index, traceability is the one in which United Colors of Benetton obtained the best result, with a score of 92% (against an average of 21%).
