Compounding a 30 year history in driving partnerships centered on sustainability and strong ethics, Louis Kennedy has joined the Products of Change initiative as it looks to ‘share ethos with organisations across the licensing space’ and encourage fundamental change across businesses.

Founded in 1991, Louis Kennedy set out its own goals of striving to reduce environmental impact and promote sustainability, as well as be an ethical partner and only associate with highly audited manufacturers who promote high standards of fairness and safety.

Over the course of its 30 years, Louise Kennedy has been building a UK-based supply chain that only uses recycled raw materials to produce recyclable items.

Grant Morgan, CEO of Louis Kennedy has said that while the firm has “not been so vocal in assessing its contribution in the past” it was “joining in the trend” to speak out about its successes going forward. 

“Becoming a member of Products of Change is an important step in this strategy,” said Morgan.

 The firm has said that it has been following the developments of Products of Change and has recognised its exciting potential to help drive and support the initiative.

As a membership organisation, Products of  Change is designed to support, encourage and perpetuate companies and brands in meeting their sustainability goals through educating to inform change and peer-to-peer networking.  

“The ability to connect with other members, which share the same ethos, irrespective of the size of  the organisation, the opportunity to share best practice, learn from experts and develop  partnerships are among the major benefits of membership,” said the company.  

“Louis Kennedy has been connecting the brand and licensing industry to charities and NGOs  for decades; bringing brands with purpose to the forefront of their ethos and driving real social  impact,” added Helena Mansell-Stopher, founder of Products of Change. “It’s an honour to have Louis Kennedy be part of Products of Change and I look forward to what we can achieve together as a group.”
