Making great fashion can require a lot of resources. Growing cotton, dyeing fabrics and washing our clothes all require significant water use. But natural resources aren’t endless.

Our planet is facing scarcity issues and according to the UN, the world will need 50% more food, 45% more energy and 30% more water by 2030. So we need to consider both present and future generations. And using resources efficiently makes long-term business sense and will increasingly provide opportunities for competitive advantage.

It is not a question for us to have suppliers in emerging markets. It’s a matter of how we do it.

We need to be a good partner ourselves. Our standards are high and we reward sustainability performance with better business. We work hard to ensure better livelihood and positive development in the communities where we operate.

Many of these challenges can’t be solved by one organisation alone. So we work with several partners to ensure lasting and systemic change.
