Our Sustainability Journey

We’re on a journey to become the most
sustainable lifestyle bag and travel luggage
company in the
world.

We want future generations of travelers to
experience the beauty of the planet the way we
do today,
which is why we’re committed to
protecting and conserving our environment.

From how we design and make our products, to
becoming carbon neutral, and how we look after
our
people and communities—our devotion to
being your safe and responsible travel companion
is at the
heart of everything we do.

Inspiring Travellers

We know you are as passionate about travelling
responsibly as we are.
Together, we are building
a community of customers around the
world
who share our sustainability values. We created
our
#PassionsBeyondGreen campaign to
promote eco-friendly exploration and sustainable travel lifestyle

Innovative Products

We’re increasing our use of sustainable materials, offering an extensive repair network and integrating cutting-edge anti-microbial technology into our products to keep you safe and keep your luggage in great condition.

We focus on durability to lengthen the lifespan
of our products and minimize our contribution to
the world’s waste problem.

Our warranties protect customers against any
manufacturing defects and avoid the waste of
replacement products.

GLOBAL WARRANTY

We give waste products a second life by
increasing our
use of innovative recycled
materials.

MATERIAL TECHNOLOGY

We use Recyclex™ fabric, made from 100% recycled plastic bottles, in most of our bags and luggage linings which has diverted 68 million plastic bottles from landfills since 2018.

To better protect you when you travel, we
use anti-microbial protection on our
fabrics to prevent the growth of microbes
and bacteria.

In collaboration with Microban®, we have integrated anti-microbial technology into the interior fabric of all our backpacks.

Our products can be repaired
worldwide,
so you never need to
replace them
unnecessarily.

We have over 200 repair centers in more
than 50 countries worldwide.

Carbon
Action

We are making positive changes to minimize our impact on the climate,
with the goal of becoming carbon neutral by 2025.

By 2025, we aim to reduce
our global carbon
intensity
by 15% across our owned and
operated facilities.

We’re committed to using
100% renewable
energy in
all our owned and
operated facilities
by 2025.

We’re passionate about reversing
deforestation.
To date, we have
supported the planting of
760,000 trees, which helps
protect endangered
species and
ecosystems, absorb carbon from
the
atmosphere and enhance
quality of life for local
communities.

Thriving
Supply Chain

We want American Tourister to be a force for good,
helping businesses, communities
and people thrive wherever we source and sell our
luggage.

Our suppliers meet our Ethical
Charter
standards, so we can
guarantee that
everyone we work
with acts fairly and
responsibly.

In 2020, we completed 135 audits of
tier-1
factories to make sure
they adhere to our high
standards
and responsible sourcing policies.

We’re continually improving the
processes
in our supply chain, to
protect and respect
the human
rights of everyone we work with.

People-focused
Ethos

Nothing we do would be possible without our
incredible people. Their passion
and
commitment are the reason we will become
the most sustainable travel
luggage company
in the world.

We empower our people to reach their
potential by
offering everyone valuable
development
opportunities.

Our new global HR platform, Ask Athena,
improves
how our people access important
information about
their pay, benefits and
holidays, as well as the
processes and
programs we use to recruit, train and
develop
our staff.

We’re committed to a culture that is as
diverse and
vibrant as the world we travel.
Our worldwide
workforce is over
50% female, and our goal is to be
gender
balanced in key roles by 2030.

Supporting
communities

We’re always looking for ways to give back. We
encourage and empower
our people to actively
support the communities where we all live and work.

Our community empowerment goals:

To protect Earth’s beautiful places through
reforestation and
conservation projects.
To promote wellbeing by giving to organizations
that support
those facing physical and mental
health issues.
To support programs that empower vulnerable communities
around the world.

Since 2015, we have been supporting vulnerable communities in India. We have helped to provide vital infrastructure and equipment for local schools and villages, including toilet blocks and roof sheds, water tanks, and a tractor to help with waste collection for the residents of Gonde.
