The Armani Group, which owns Giorgio Armani, Emporio Armani and Armani Jeans, has announced that it will no longer use angora wool across its collections from AW22 and onwards.

The news follows Armani Group's agreement with the Fur Free alliance in 2016, which saw the group ban the use of animal fur from all its products.

Emphasised by the group, this latest commitment marks another step towards sustainability across its supply chain with regards to the environment and animals.

Giorgio Armani, CEO at Giorgio Armani, said: "We are pleased to announce that Angora wool has been discontinued from all Armani Group collections, demonstrating our specific commitment to monitoring production for the protection of nature.

"We have always believed in the innovation and research of new materials and the innovative ways to process traditional raw materials."

The Armani Group is also involved with international working groups to address the use of chemicals considered to be potentially hazardous. In July, it announced its targets for the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions, approved by the Science Based Targets initiative.
