It recently formalized its membership to the largest initiative in Social Responsibility in the world, the United Nations Global Compact, and its strategy is strongly aligned with the United Nations 2030 Agenda and the achievement of the 17 SDGs. The company has registered its commitments to sector change on the United Nations Conscious Fashion and Lifestyle Network.

Alfredo Ferre stated: “Throughout our 75-year history, the 17 Sustainable Development Goals have been ingrained into our DNA and strategy at Recover™, and we are proud to support the United Nations Conscious Fashion and Lifestyle Network Annual Meeting to help engage the fashion industry to accelerate action in achieving them. By collaborating with these global stakeholders, we hope to scale our impact further to help brands and retailers meet their sustainable goals.”
