Together for
our planet.

In our business, the planet is a key stakeholder, just like the children who wear our schoolwear and the communities we serve. This means we embrace our responsibility to put back into nature what we take out of it, striving to minimise the environmental impact of our operations in every way we can.

The environment is a huge part of our sustainability strategy. And while we’ve achieved a lot so far, we intend to go bigger, better and bolder with our environmental commitments, investing in projects that reduce our carbon emissions and reduce or eliminate any detrimental impact on biodiversity.

What we're
striving for.


Reduce Scope 1, 2 and 3 emissions by focussing on our emissions hotspots - Energy and Travel - and implementing our comprehensive reduction plan.


Re-evaluate the financial viability of solar pv options for Trowbridge Canal Road and Kennet Way Warehouse sites to achieve 10% annual reductions in our energy emissions.


Revisit the commercial viability for electric vehicles that operate out of our Group DCs as part of our long-term aim to achieve a 100% electric company vehicle fleet.


Prioritise the reduction of full Scope 3 emissions in our value chain and reduce air freight emissions to less than 10% of our total transport emissions in 2023.


Work closely with our supply chain partners to reduce their environmental footprint and support them on their carbon-neutral journey.


Keep working to find a sustainable and commercial solution to recycle/re-purpose textiles at end of life and get used surplus textiles back into the supply chain.


Implement a transformational packaging strategy that delivers a net positive impact on the environment and reduces our plastic footprint by 50% by 2025, as well as 100% of our plastic and carton packaging being sourced from recycled materials, not virgin sources.


Improve waste management and better recycling across all sites through closer monitoring of waste collections, better education on categories of waste and wider employee engagement through our “Waste Nothing” campaigns.


Keep collaborating and researching to ensure the fabrics we source for our garments come from renewable sources.
