Worker wellbeing

For the people behind the product

The social side of sustainability has ethical trade and working conditions at its heart.

Worker wellbeing

Let's be honest

Who made your clothes?

Most supply chains span multiple countries, laws and regulations, making it difficult to enforce standards and fair conditions. Certifications such as Fairtrade help identify products that prioritise the wellbeing of workers. We've made it easier to see which items meet these criteria so you can make informed decisions when you shop.

Raising the bar

Working with our brand partners

We want to collaborate with our brand partners to drive positive change in the fashion industry. To identify which brands are leading the way, and opportunities for improvement, we use tools like the Higg Index Brand & Retail Module (Higg BRM). This is the industry's most comprehensive tool for measuring a brand's sustainability performance. By 2023, it will be mandatory for all of our partner brands to complete this assessment. Our ultimate aim is to provide transparent and trustworthy information that enables you to make more sustainable choices.

A first step

Progress, not perfection

We care about the workers who make your clothes, and know that you do, too. While our Code of Conduct sets a high benchmark for ethical standards, we want to highlight when brands have independent certifications that go above and beyond, like Fairtrade Cotton and GOTS. We are aware these certifications only tell part of the story, and don’t show how a brand is increasing traceability and supporting workers in their supply chains. We’re committed to transparency, and this step is just the beginning.

A little research goes a long way

Research your favourite brands to find out what they do to support workers and their communities. (If they're doing good things, trust us – they'll want to talk about it!)
