We’re committed to having a positive impact in our communities in the UK and around the world.
In addition to the charitable activities we support in the UK, we take a keen interest in the working conditions, livelihoods and wellbeing of communities within our global supply chain.
As part of our commitment to the human and labour rights coalition, the Transparency Pledge, we work with
the Open Apparel Registry (OAR) to provide a database of clothing factories in our supply chain. You can find a full list of factories we work with across other product types here. We've also adopted the Everyone’s Business app to educate factory-facing colleagues on the risks of modern slavery and facilitate the reporting of potential issues.
To support improvements in working conditions and enhance relationships, we have sustainability teams based in our key sourcing regions. They ensure our partners uphold our commitments to the 10 principles of the United Nations Global Compact, and develop programmes that offer training, improve facilities and support workers and communities.
