Reducing our impact on Climate Change is at the heart of what we do.
We have clear targets in each department, throughout our business, to reduce our impact in every way possible. Transportation, road miles, efficiency and renewable energy and water usage in our own facilities are measured and targeted.
We are proud to say that we have zero landfill for any waste from our facilities.
For over 10 years we started to import our goods from Liverpool rather than Southern ports. This has reduced our road miles by 400,000 miles per year.
We are members of UN Climate Change Group and primary members of Smart Freight. Through this, we work to reduce our road miles in our distribution and on improving our efficiency whilst lowering emissions. A considerable effort in benchmarking is undertaken.
As signatories to the UNFCCC Fashion for Global Climate Action we are committed to net zero emissions by 2050. This is a collaborative approach to climate action across the textile, clothing and fashion industry. Since 2019 we have been working with the Global Logistic Emissions Council using their GLEC framework measurement tool to report on our Carbon Footprint.
We have reduced our product packaging by 50% and only use recycled materials in all our printing. We don’t laminate paper and we source all paper from renewable sources (FSC Standard).
Our poly bags are made from Oxo plastic – they are reusable, recyclable and biodegradable.
We work collaboratively with other local businesses and universities to look at ways to develop the circular economy.
We have management systems in place that comply with the requirements of The Control of Substances Hazardous to Health Regulations 2002 (COSHH). Under these regulations, UK operations evaluate and control the risks to the health of all employees from exposure to hazardous substances at work.
