Sustainability

BRC

‘Net zero’ made it to Oxford Dictionary's Words on an Unprecedented Year, affirming just how important it is to all of us. Climate change is one of the greatest threats to our planet and we believe we have a responsibility to do what we can to reduce our impact. We are proud to be part of the BRC’s Climate Action Roadmap, working towards a retail industry wide net zero by 2040.

BCI

We are committed to reducing our environment impact and plan to transition to 100% sustainable cotton by 2023. It’s an ambitious target, but one that we feel strongly about.

Our partnership with the Better Cotton Initiative (BCI) will help us make that goal a reality. We are delighted to be amplifying our relationship with the BCI whose mission it is to make global cotton production better for the people who produce it and better for the environment it grows in.

SAC

We are committed to reducing our environment impact and plan to transition to 100% sustainable cotton by 2023. It’s an ambitious target, but one that we feel strongly about.

As a member of the Sustainable Apparel Coalition, River Island is able to access valuable measurement tools, like The Higg Index. It is vital that we are able to assess the social and environmental credentials of our suppliers so that we can identify areas where improvements can be made. As we work hard to become more sustainable, the SAC will ensure that we can provide environmental and social transparency.
