Their Path to Sustainability launched in March 2021 and lays out a comprehensive set of targets, concentrating on four key areas: Responsible Sourcing; Community Care; Reducing Emissions; and Increased Circularity.

Their four pathways encompass all areas of sustainability – from considering the origins of the raw materials in each product to thinking about where that product ends up at the end of its lifecycle and all the stages and processes in-between. You can find out more about each pathway below.
