Where we can, we plan to move to using recycled polyester. At present this fibre is more expensive and often doesn’t perform as well as “new fibre”, potentially compromising our “Durability = Sustainability” principle. However, we are working with suppliers at the forefront of this technology. By the end of 2019 we have committed to ensuring that 10% of our polyester is sourced from recycled sources (principally plastic bottles). We are targeting 25% by the end of 2020.
Target: 25% Recycled polyester purchases by end 2020
