Sustainable luxury is about going back to the basics of the old days meaning of luxury, a thought over purchase, a craft manufacture, and the beauty of materials in the broadest sense and the respect for social and environmental aspects. There are people with a profound perspective towards environmental and social issues, and there is already a relationship between personal values and sustainability, entrepreneurship and innovation. And, in practice, this was the perception in the process of the first and second editions of the Best Performance in Sustainable Luxury in Latin America Award, which enabled organisers to build sound relationships with entrepreneurs from the luxury sector, such as, Diana Verde Nieto (Positive Luxury, UK); Oliver Wayman and Cameron Saul (BottleTop, UK), Kavita Palmar (The IOU Project), Carry Sommers (Pachacuti, UK), among others. These are transformational leaders that inspire, provide intellectual stimulus and care deeply about people and the environment. And leadership and inspiration are crucial to move towards sustainability.
How can we take advantage of the inspiration and energy of entrepreneurs in the luxury sector to create a sustainable, inclusive and fair society? This book opens an amazing window to answer the question raised by the stories, in first person, told by the people who shaped innovative ventures.
