Small businesses and multinationals alike are starting to wake up to the damage caused by previous bad practices and are putting their best foot forward to tackle the issue.

Many of Mayfair’s shops, restaurants and other businesses are making an attempt to support sustainable retail. The impact may not always be instant and obvious. But taking the initial steps to make improvements will collectively have a positive effect. Let’s take a look at some of the brands that are currently being heralded as pioneers in Mayfair.

The Stephen Webster philosophy is to create a business to be a force of good. They are continuously evaluating their sustainability and building upon the ethos set out through 2 generations of this family business. They look after their employees and suppliers by supporting health and well-being through flexible working hours, a cycle-to-work scheme and enhanced maternity pay.

Within the wider community, they have donated £10,000 to International Women's Day to support the charity providing care to women affected by the Ukraine crisis. They also work closely with new talent to help shine a light on emerging British craftsmanship and goldsmithing to keep the tradition alive and continuing into the future. They source responsible materials for all of their pieces. The brand only uses 100% recycled gold and silver while minimising single-use plastics within their sites and salons.
