We don’t want to blow our own trumpet.
We firmly believe in getting on with doing stuff that’s important. Making changes that help others, learning from our mistakes and always trying to improve. Here are our accreditations and the organisations helping us to do better for people and the planet.
Certified B Corporation
Certified B Corporations are organisations that balance prosperity with people and the planet. We became a Certified B Corp in August 2020, because we want to be a force for good.
Planet Mark certification recognises our commitment to measure and reduce carbon emissions, travel, waste, energy and water consumption. Certification is important to us, as we strive to demonstrate our care for the planet.
Certified Carbon Neutral
Awarded by The CarbonNeutral Protocol, a global framework for carbon neutrality, our certification extends from the port of origin to delivery of our products to our customers' premises.
Ethical Trading Initiative
As a full member of the Ethical Trading Initiative (ETI), we’ve adopted the ETI Base Code to drive improvements for the people who make our garments overseas. And we’re also helping all our suppliers to adopt the ETI Base Code.
We display the ETI Base Code in our overseas supplier factories in local languages, to aid awareness and understanding among workers and colleagues.
GM Good Employment Charter
We’re one of the first six members of the Greater Manchester Good Employment Charter, which aims to help deliver better employment standards, good jobs and a thriving local economy.
Employee Ownership Association
Employee owned since 2015, we're empowered to control our destiny, share the rewards of our success fairly and unite behind our common purpose and mission.
We became an accredited Living Wage employer in 2018. We’re committed to ensure that everyone who works for us, including contractors, benefits from fair rates of pay to meet the rising cost of living.
We became an accredited Living Hours employer in 2022. We deliver guaranteed hours and clear notice of shift patterns, so colleagues and families have greater financial security and stability.
We partner with Better Cotton to improve cotton farming globally. Better Cotton is sourced via a chain of custody model called mass balance. This means that Better Cotton is not physically traceable to end products. We're committed to sourcing 50% of our cotton as Better Cotton by 2025.
