Question:

Business Idea

Ralph Lauren is a worldwide fashion label that produces mid-range to luxury clothing. My proposed business idea for Ralph Lauren is to establish a new clothing line that is environmentally sustainable using industrial hemp. Hemp is a type of textile created from the Cannabis Sativa plant and is extracted using the fibres from the stalks.

– Hemp is more lightweight, absorbent and three times more durable than cotton.

– It is UV and mould resistant thus effective in poor weather conditions

– Very cost-effective (hemp grows rapidly)

– Environmentally sustainable requiring minimal water for production, chemicals and pesticides are unnecessary during production.

– Produces more fibre per acre than trees and absorbs more carbon dioxide than trees.

– Extremely versatile material used in various products.

A crucial objective for this business is sustainability and its competitive edge in relation to its industry competitors (Raska, D & Shaw, D 2012). Adopting a sustainable business model will attract new customers who are environmentally conscious while retaining existing clients. Using the hemp material provides various benefits for this business (refer above). Not to mention the internal and external influence on stakeholders by increasing employee satisfaction. Nevertheless, a successful sustainable organisation overall benefits from the environmental, social and economic variables.
