We use our size, scale, and global reach to expand our positive impact, with an overarching governance structure that drives performance, leadership, and transparency. Direction comes from our most senior management, supported by a centralised decision-making body, and regional committees led by retail market management teams. This global governance structure enables us to make better decisions quicker and with lasting results.
We are striving to normalise sustainable fashion. We believe everyone should be able to look good, feel good, and do good every day, while supporting the lives of those who make their clothes, and the planet we source from.
As of 2018, 46% of the people in our supply chain work in top-performing, A- or B-rated production units. And our commitment to sourcing 100% more sustainable cotton by 2020 has already resulted in significant carbon and water reductions. Of course, there is still more to do to realise our vision of making sustainable fashion the new normal. As we continue striving towards circular fashion, we will foster convergence across the apparel industry. Partnering with the right organisations and initiatives is key for all of us to take the bold steps necessary for real and lasting change.
