The Rise of Sustainable Consumerism

Discover how Samsonite's Suntec City ups its sustainability game by adopting more sustainable shopping formats.

It’s truly remarkable how much influence consumers wield in driving sustainability. Now more than ever, we’re witnessing this movement gaining significant traction, especially among Gen Z shoppers. Just think—almost a decade ago, brands like Patagonia and Stella McCartney were the early pioneers in championing eco-conscious shopping. Today, businesses are increasingly prioritising sustainable practices, demonstrating a willingness to invest in products that align with their values. What’s happening here isn’t just a passing trend, but a seismic shift that’s reshaping the retail landscape. But here’s the kicker – Gen Z isn’t merely demanding change; they’re actively leading it. They expect brands to up their sustainability game if they want to remain relevant in today’s market. And that’s precisely where the new Samsonite Suntec City store steps in. It’s a sanctuary for eco-conscious shoppers, offering a meticulously curated selection of products that seamlessly blend sustainability with luxury.

But there’s more: beyond integrating sustainable materials into products and packaging, Samsonite actively redefines its carbon footprint by adopting more sustainable shopping formats. This strategic initiative transcends mere transactions. It’s also a holistic approach to engaging stakeholders, encompassing people, partners, and the wider community. Through this comprehensive strategy, Samsonite aligns its values with those of consumers and partners, fostering a collective effort towards a sustainable tomorrow.

Crafting a Sustainable Future: Samsonite’s Responsible Journey

Under the leadership of Mr. Satish Peerubandi, Vice-President of Samsonite SEA, the brand’s commitment to sustainability deepens. In 2020, Samsonite introduced “Our Responsible Journey,” a comprehensive sustainability strategy that encompasses product development, environmental stewardship, and community engagement.

At the core of this strategy lies the Suntec City store, serving as a testament to innovative design and environmental consciousness. From Balau wood sculptures, crafted from reclaimed shipyard timber to an exterior facade fashioned from recycled aluminium, each element reflects Samsonite’s dedication to sustainable practices.
