Textile factories can use large amounts of energy and water in the manufacturing process.

We run programmes in partnership with other retailers, environmental experts, and organisations like Greenpeace, to help our suppliers improve their environmental impact, conserve natural resources, and replace certain chemicals with alternatives.

Greener manufacturing

Our Cleaner Production programmes, which started in 2011, provides training to suppliers in Bangladesh and China on how to make improvements to their washing, dyeing and printing operations. The training helps them to reduce the water, chemicals and energy they use and ensure that waste water is treated properly.

In addition we are working to phase out certain chemicals and replace them with alternatives.
