‘Sustainability Is Our Business Plan,’ Selfridges Vows

Ratcheting up its sustainability commitments, Selfridges is unfurling a two-month campaign involving repair, rental and resale services — and setting steep commitments for all its vendors regarding eco-friendly materials.

“Sustainability is our business plan, with five-year commitments,” said Anne Pitcher, group managing director, unveiling the British retailer’s Project Earth initiative during a webcast last week.

Forecasting “a tough year ahead,” Pitcher stressed the need to “provide new experiences and new conversations” for its customers as they emerge from coronavirus lockdowns with stronger convictions about mindful consumption, and heightened concerns about the environment.

The executive said Selfridges is “putting people and planet at the heart of our thinking,” which will “transform the way we do business and the way we shop over the next five years.”

The retailer plans to make it easier for customers to shop responsibly with a new destination called “The Organic Cotton Shop,” plus labeling detailing the

Why We Buy In to the Big Business of Sleep

In a small room without windows, I am instructed to breathe in sync with a colorful bar on a screen in front of me. Six counts in. Six counts out. Electrodes tie me to a machine whirring on the table. My hands and feet are bare, wiped clean and placed atop silver boards. My finger is pinched by an oximeter, my left arm squeezed by a blood-pressure cuff. Across from me, a woman with a high ponytail, scrublike attire and soft eyes smiles encouragingly. She is not a doctor, and this is not a lab. The air smells like lavender and another fruity scent I later learn is cassis. My chair is made of woven reeds, topped with a thick cushion and a pillow for lumbar support. The windowless room feels more cozy than claustrophobic; this is not torture but a luxury. I am, in fact, in a five-star resort

How To Get Into Columbia Business School

Columbia Business School

If you want to get into Columbia Business School’s MBA program, you might want to highlight your leadership potential and any engagement you’ve had with the CBS community.

Elizabeth Kiefer, of Business Insider, recently spoke to Columbia alumni and admissions officers about what the b-school seeks in applicants and how prospective applicants can bolster their applications.

SEEKING LEADERS

CBS seeks applicants who have leadership potential and can show examples of that potential.

One of the areas where applicants can highlight this is through recommendation letters.

“When I read your recommendation, [and] it’s from an expert practitioner who is your boss, does that person say: ‘I’ve been in this space for 10 to 20 years, [and] this is why I think she has the potential to be a leader in the future because this is what I’ve seen her do’?” Michael Robinson, the director of admissions at

‘I started a fashion business from two suitcases’

The BBC’s weekly The Boss series profiles different business leaders from around the world. This week we speak to Rwandan fashion designer Joselyne Umutoniwase.

In 2010, Joselyne Umutoniwase took a bold decision. She had been working as a film editor for five years but decided to follow her dream of becoming a fashion designer.

She made her first fashion collection and when she travelled from her home in Rwanda to Germany for a film scholarship, she took two suitcases stuffed with tops, skirts and dresses.

“The young Germans were fascinated about the style and the colourful African wax prints,” she says.

She sold the whole collection in three months.

“I didn’t know that I could earn serious money with selling my own creations,” she says from her business in Kigali.

Joselyne bought cheap second-hand items and “separated all the parts to find out where the seams were and how these
