OUR AMBITIONS

Creating the best products using the most sustainable and innovative materials,methods and models.

  • Increase the use of materials with sustainable credentials in all our products and packaging to lessen our impact on the environment.
  • Continue to develop innovative solutions to ensure the durability of our products, extend the life of our products and develop viable end of life solutions to divert as many of our products from landfill for as long as possible.

“We start at the very beginning, thinking about how a product is designed, and work right through to the end of its life, and how it will be disposed of.”

GIVING PLASTIC WASTE A SECOND LIFE

Since 2018, we have diverted more than 68 million 500ml rPET bottles from landfill through the use of our Recyclex™ fabric.

MATERIALS INNOVATION

Design that respects resources is a constant focus for us. Increasingly, we choose to use high quality sustainable materials that re-purpose waste, recycling important resources. Our industry leading Recyclex™ fabric is made from 100% recycled plastic bottles and means we give waste a second life and reduce our use of virgin materials.

Since 2018, we have diverted more than 68 million 500ml rPET bottles from landfill through the use of our Recyclex™ fabric.

Samsonite Europe’s S’Cure ECO suitcase won the Recycled Household & Leisure Product of the Year at the 2020 Plastics Recycling Awards Europe.

TUMI launched three new lines that incorporate recycled plastic bottles in the design – helping to divert 400,000 plastic bottles from landfill in 2020.

In 2020, American Tourister Europe launched two new products that contain Recyclex™, a polyester that is made from recycled PET bottles.

Product Lifecycle

Making products that are built to last means we are taking pressure off the global waste problem – but this is only the first step; by providing long warranties and extensive repair networks, we will keep you travelling, wherever in the world you may be.

  • We are able to repair any accidental damage or wear and tear to your Samsonite luggage at our repair centers – more than 200 of them in more than 50 countries worldwide.
  • Proxis™ is Samsonite’s new, highly resilient hard-shell collection. It is our first travel collection using Roxkin™ - an innovative, patented luggage material that is remarkably strong and light, and is also recyclable. This means that at the end of each Proxis™ suitcase’s life, the parts can either be repurposed or recycled.
