“commitment to taking action for the benefit of current and future
generations.” The brand has also dedicated itself to utilizing a
responsible business strategy that will be respectful of both people and

nature,” Rosso said in a statement. “Today, we face a new vital challenge,
the biggest one yet as we become more and more aware of the social,
