Reducing impact

From the first thread to the final label, we continually work with suppliers to improve their processes to reduce chemical toxicity and environmental damage. We strive to source and develop sustainable materials and our packaging is also produced with recycled materials and is fully recyclable.

Our products are made in the world’s first 100% solar powered leather goods factory.

We are dedicated to progressively reducing our impact on the environment. We respect our environment and we’re committed to minimising our environmental impact to reduce the speed of climate change and resource depletion. This commitment is embedded throughout our organisation and manifests itself in our daily operations and business practices.

Our definition of Sustainability:

The promotion of environmentally and socially responsible practices throughout the supply chain. The use of natural and renewable resources wherever possible. The reduction of Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions at our own facilities and our supply chain.

Our primary goal is to achieve a more transparent and sustainable supply chain in the industries in which we participate.

We are committed to :

  • Educate our employees on the importance of all policies and provide them with the skills and support they need to implement them
  • Comply with or exceed relevant legislative requirements. Where these are inadequate we will aim to set our own standards.
  • Develop and implement a set of procedures to monitor, control and review where and how we are having an environmental impact and to make changes where necessary. (see Measuring Impact)
  • Encourage both stock and non-stock suppliers to recognise their environmental responsibilities, offering support, training and advice to help them implement sound environmental practices.
  • Design, develop and manufacture our products with consideration of the environment, moving towards greater use of sustainable/recycled materials and processes whilst also reducing waste.
  • Produce all of our products in the most sustainable factories possible, including the world’s first bags and accessories factory that is run on 100% solar energy.
