Moving 90% of our main fibres to Preferred or Better Fibres by the end 2022.


The Way We Source

We know the textile supply chain has a significant environmental impact, which is why we invest time and energy to nurture our supplier partnerships and source from ethical manufacturers. We work with highly skilled sewers in China, wool growers in Australia and bamboo farmers in Asia to produce pants for our global customers.

We are currently on a journey to map our suppliers from the farm to our cut-and-sew facilities, a process which will continue throughout 2022 and 2023. We have set high environmental and social standards to provide confidence in our products throughout their life cycle. While many brands do not trace their supply chain back to fibre creation we feel this is important for transparency.


Code of Conduct and Living Wage

Supply chains are complex and busy and we understand that improvements start with learning and setting standards. All our direct suppliers agree to our Code of Conduct which is based on the International Labour Organization's core standards for safe, fair and healthy working conditions.

During 2022, we will provide training for our suppliers to support their knowledge and capacity building to meet these requirements.

All garment workers in our cut and sew factories earn at least the minimum wage and in 2022, we will collaborate with our suppliers to develop a roadmap toward increasing and ring fencing Tier 1 garment worker wages to meet a Living Wage.

A Living Wage should be earned in a standard work week (of up to 48 hours) by a worker, and be sufficient to afford a decent standard of living for the worker and their family.

Elements of a decent standard of living include food, housing, healthcare, clothing, education, transportation, energy and water. It also includes some money that can be put aside for unexpected events.

We will transparently share our Tier 1 supplier list during 2023.

Auditing And Monitoring

We use the Sustainable Apparel Coalition Higg Index, a suite of tools for the apparel, footwear and textiles sectors which measures the environmental and social performance of our supply chain. This third party audit process alerts us to areas of concern and opportunities for improvement.

The Higg Index Environmental module measures governance, energy use, greenhouse gas emissions, water use, wastewater, waste and chemical management. The Social Labor module identifies compliance with workers’ rights, facility conditions, child labour, wages and working hours, health and safety, transparency and community empowerment. Many of our suppliers also participate in the Business Social Compliance Initiative (BSCI), which similarly supports ethical working conditions.

Our goal is to support our suppliers to continue improving each year, with a firm focus in 2022 on working hours, improving living wages (payment above and beyond the minimum wage), improving energy efficiency and establishing carbon reduction plans.
