WE'RE HERE TO CREATE AN IMPACT.
To lead not respond, to source responsibly, to produce ethically, and to use less, more sustainably. Investing in a better future for people and our planet. Every day.
OUR GUIDING PRINCIPLES
TO SOURCE RESPONSIBLY
We use only more sustainably sourced fibres for all our T-shirts, polo shirts and sweatshirts. By exclusively sourcing Organic and Organic in Conversion Cotton, Better Cotton and Recycled Polyester for all our styles we limit our impact on the planet. Every day.
TO PRODUCE ETHICALLY
We’re committed to improving worker’s well-being with Fair Wear Foundation.
We are Fair Wear Leader, a category reserved for member companies who are doing exceptionally well and are operating at an advanced level. (Source: Official definition, Fair Wear Foundation website)
THE MATERIALS WE SOURCE MAKE A DIFFERENCE. LESS WATER. LESS CHEMICALS. LESS WASTE.
1. Organic Fibres. Certified organic materials reduce chemical and water use, and ensure working conditions for farmers are in line with International Labour Organisation (ILO) guidelines. We use certified organic cotton and certified organic in-conversion cotton.
2. Better Cotton. As a Better Cotton member, we empower farmers to be more efficient with water, care for soil health, and respect biodiversity. Creating opportunities for farmers to work with freedom, equity, security and dignity, ultimately leading to increased yields and profits for them. Better Cotton is sourced via a system of Mass Balance and not physically traceable to end products. BCI Farmers benefit from the demand for Better Cotton in equivalent volumes to those we source.

3. Recycled Polyester. We use only Recycled Polyester in all our t-shirts, polo shirts and sweatshirts, reducing our reliance on virgin resources. By repurposing post-consumer plastic waste, recycled polyester also contributes to circular fashion principles.
4.Oeko-Tex®. All our garments have the OEKO-TEX® Standard 100 certification, guaranteeing that they’re free from harmful chemicals and substances. Thanks to this we minimise environmental impact and ensure the safety and comfort of both consumers and the people who make our clothes.
WITHOUT PEOPLE OUR PRODUCTS WOULDN'T EXIST.
2. UNSDGs. As signatory of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), we demonstrate our commitment to the UN’s approach to social and environmental sustainability.
3. Our Code of Conduct is rooted in the principles of the United Nations Global Compact, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child. It also includes all the applicable conventions and recommendations of the International Labour Organisation (ILO) and follows the FWF Code of Conduct.
4. Our Supplier Relationships are long-lasting and rooted in mutual trust. We work with them every day to make sure that our rigorous standards are met, and we provide the support they need through our local office (DLO). By implementing a responsible purchasing policy we help ensure their stability, so they have no need to sub-contract, overtime is limited and wages are paid on time.
SUSTAINABILITY GOES BEYOND OUR GARMENTS
*In accordance with the guidelines of the Greenhouse Gas Protocol (GHG Protocol), we measured the emissions produced by our Head Office in Waterloo and our Local Liaison office in Dhaka including energy consumption, office supplies, waste, company travel etc.
SUSTAINABILITY FOR ALL
We exclusively use responsibly sourced fibres, including organic and organic in-conversion cotton, Better Cotton, and recycled polyester. This commitment ensures that we offer sustainable solutions across a range of price points, meeting diverse needs. Our dedication to sustainability extends beyond the final product; we strive for positive impacts upstream at the farm and factory levels, benefiting all workers involved. Indeed, we promote contemporary apparel, responsibly source our fibres, and ensure the ethical production of our styles, proudly holding the position of Fair Wear Leader.

SUPPLY CHAIN DUE DILIGENCE
HREDD - a cornerstone of our sustainability promise
Human Rights and Environmental Due Diligence (HREDD) is all about businesses taking responsibility for the impact of their supply chains on people and the planet. In simple terms, for our market it means that whenever larger companies and organisations purchase textiles - for workwear, promotions, merchandise etc. - they are accountable for making sure these have been produced in an ethical and responsible way and they must be able to prove it.
As a brand we have embraced the challenge and put in place due diligence procedures and processes across our supply chain to meet the requirements of existing and upcoming national and EU regulations (notably the CSDDD: Corporate Sustainability Due Diligence Directive), which will require companies to work on:
- Integration of due diligence in policies and risk management systems
- Identification, assessment, prevention, mitigation and remediation of adverse impacts
- Adoption and implementation of a climate change transition plan, to ensure that a company's business model complies with limiting global warming to 1.5 degrees (celsius).
Our supply chain due diligence procedures have been developed based on the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights. It's a guarantee that we follow due diligence best practice at every stage of our supply chain, offering you a fully compliant textile solution.
