Recycled polyester has a 75% lower carbon footprint than virgin polyester and uses up to 90% less water. In 2016, we increased the amount of recycled polyester we used by 38% and introduced recycled nylon into our collections.
As we continue to push boundaries and challenge the status quo, we want to evolve from just reducing our impact to making a positive impact. Our mission is to completely reimagine the fashion industry as we know it and move to a new circular economy.
Our Eco Impact Report 2018/19
We believe that if you do not measure your impact, you cannot manage or improve it. We continue to use natural capital accounting in order to put more sustainable actions into place and create a business that works with Mother Earth rather than against her.
In our latest report, we detail the changes we have made to our impact methodology, detail our approach in managing the social impacts of our business and discuss how we will address our impacts going forward.
