Sustainable sourcing: All suppliers sign our Code of Conduct, which requires them to minimise waste and dispose of it in accordance with legal requirements, reduce packaging to optimise usage/best fit and improve the recycled content of their products and packaging; and to commit to a strategy of carbon reduction.
Suppliers of our own brand products are also required to comply with the following policies:
Cotton Responsible Sourcing Policy: Covering the welfare and environmental standards that apply to cotton farming and production– we are targeting all of the cotton in our own brand products to be responsibly sourced by 2025.
Timber policy: The timber used in all products and marketing materials must be legally sourced, and we are targeting 50% of our products to be sustainably sourced by 2025.
Animal welfare policy: Based on the Farm Animal Welfare Committee’s Five Freedoms, with materials-specific requirements, for example covering fur, animal hair, leather, sheepskin and wool.
Palm oil: All Dunelm and Pausa own brand products which contain palm oil to be 100% sustainably sourced by the end of FY20.
