With our membership in the Sustainable Apparel Coalition (SAC), we join more than 240 global brands, retailers, and manufacturers, as well as government, non-profit environmental organisations, and academic institutions, which are collectively committed to improving supply chain sustainability in the apparel, footwear, and textile industry.

Sustainable forestry management practices.
Timber sourced outside of our own plantations is rigorously assessed through stringent policies to ensure the wood is supplied and is not derived from ancient or endangered forests and is grown and harvested in a sustainable manner. These include sourcing certified timber under FSC™, SFI and PEFC.
