We believe that responsible sourcing is a vital component of our mission to create a positive impact on the environment and society.

OUR APPROACH STANDARDS ACCOUNTABILITY SUSTAINABLE SOURCING

Ethical Standards

We hold ourselves to the highest ethical standards when selecting suppliers and partners. Our sourcing decisions are guided by principles of integrity, transparency, and respect for human rights.

Environmental Responsibility

We prioritise materials and processes that have a lower environmental impact. This includes selecting suppliers who share our dedication to minimizing waste, conserving resources, and reducing carbon emissions.

Social Accountability

We actively seek partners who uphold fair labour practices, safe working conditions, and fair wages for their employees. We are committed to contributing to the well-being and development of the communities where our products are sourced.

Key Initiatives

Local Sourcing

Whenever possible, we prioritise local suppliers to reduce transportation emissions and support local economies. By sourcing locally, we also ensure that our products maintain a smaller carbon footprint.

Certified Materials

We work with suppliers who provide certified materials, such as FSC, PEFC, Fair Trade, and responsibly sourced options. These certifications help us ensure that the materials used in our products meet rigorous environmental and social standards.

Supply Chain Transparency

We are committed to supply chain transparency. We engage in open dialogues with our suppliers to understand their practices and verify that they align with our sustainability goals.

Continuous Improvement

Collaboration and Innovation

We collaborate with suppliers, industry partners, and experts to continually improve our sourcing practices. We actively seek innovative solutions that promote sustainability and support positive change.

Goal Tracking

We set measurable goals to track our progress in sustainable sourcing. These goals hold us accountable and help us strive for continuous improvement in our sourcing efforts.
