In This Issue


In these times of a great awakening, businesses and customers alike are realising it’s not only the right thing to do to protect our planet’s finite resources but it’s essential.

With this in mind we have dedicated this issue to sustainability. We believe that together, through our daily actions, we can create a more sustainable future for people and the planet.

From fashion and beauty to food and travel, we want to bring you on a journey to discover the many ways our business, our brands and our people are inspiring change. The big question on everyone’s lips is, how can we, as individuals, make a difference? We are here to show you the ways you can do just that.


"Our vision at Brown Thomas Arnotts is to create POSITIVE CHANGE. We see that as placing sustainability at the heart of everything we do, how we work and what we buy and sell. We know our customers are becoming ever more conscious shoppers, that’s why we have created this issue to bring you a choice of sustainable fashion, beauty, food and living.

For our business being sustainable means improving how we work, growing our sustainable product offering and supporting our local communities through charity and volunteering initiatives. We have a committed sustainability team and over 40 champions throughout the business who live and breathe these values.

For me sustainability is about innovating for the future, we have been leading Irish retail for over 175 years, driving a sustainable way of working is the only way to ensure we are here for the next. " - Donald McDonald, Managing Director, Brown Thomas Arnotts

The digital revolution happened because it could. The sustainability revolution will happen because it must. Businesses of today can lead the way into the future: by imagining, innovating, piloting projects and testing ideas. It’s no longer about making sustainability part of our strategy. Our strategy needs to become sustainability.

Being transparent about the small steps we are taking towards sustainability is our responsibility to you and the environment, and we’re striving to do better every day. We invite you to come along with us.
