It is our duty and our customer’s expectation to make sure we trade ethically and source responsibly.
We will only trade with Brands which have internationally recognised Ethical Trading policies and can demonstrate and document this to us in order to give our customers peace of mind that when they purchase garments or products from us they do so knowing that all items are produced under these policies.
Industrial Workwear Limited will not knowingly trade with any supplier that does not comply with these laws and regulations.
You will find links below to some of our major brands Ethical Trading policies and statements.
If you have any questions regarding our Ethical Trading policy please contact our marketing team at [email protected]
Industrial Workwear understand and embrace our responsibility to respect human rights throughout its supply chain.
We are committed to ensuring people are treated with dignity and respect. Our approach is to implement the United Nations Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights and to recognise and manage the risk of harm associated with unsatisfactory working conditions, discrimination, modern slavery, human trafficking and forced or bonded labour.
We operate a ZERO tolerance approach to slavery and human trafficking.
Our Ethical Approach
Boxes and packaging from our warehouse are reused where possible.
All Waste Cardboard, Plastic, Paper and Cans are recycled using Veolia Recycling Bins.
Our electricity is supplied by Engie and is 100% renewables.
Power Sockets and unnecessary lighting are switched off when not in use.
Our delivery service is provided by DPD UK and we have partnered with them because of their Carbon Neutral Commitment through their ‘Driving Change’ policy, following the link to find out more https://www.dpd.co.uk/content/about_dpd/csr.jsp
We are rolling out a planned change in our approach to company vehicles, as contracts come to an end we are swapping over to Pure Electric or Plug in Hybrid cars and vans.
We are working closely with our packaging suppliers to ensure that the products that we use create as little impact as possible on the environment. By promoting the use of sustainable products and recycling as much as possible we are working hard to reduce our impact on the environment.
