We made strong progress towards our 2020 sustainability goals in 2016. Over half of the cotton we use is now either organic cotton or Better Cotton. We launched our first circular fashion product, a GOLD level Cradle-to-Cradle CertifiedTM T-shirt. We’ve also continued to engage our customers and employees on issues important to them.
We continue to focus on strengthening our programmes across the rest of our supply chain to meet our 2020 goals for top-rated suppliers, particularly in relation to safe and fair labour practices and zero discharge of hazardous chemicals.
Even though we are not where we wanted to be in terms of turnover and profitability in 2016, we remain committed to our sustainability goals and are determined to strengthen our efforts when it comes to leading industry-wide change.
