Ethical sourcing


We maintain a high standard of ethics and environmental conduct, based on international legal standards, as central to the way our businesses operate.

Over 500 supplier/factory ethical assessments conducted during the year

Our Net Positive sustainability programme includes the standards and aims for how we manage relationships with suppliers and partners across the Group (including Goods Not For Resale), in the areas of ethical assessments and carbon and water footprint reduction.

Our targets build on progress already achieved through our previous Corporate Responsibility programme, called Steps to Responsible Growth, which ended in 2011 and which we transitioned into the foundations of the Net Positive programme in 2012.
