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:
Preferred textile fibre policy: Covering the welfare and environmental standards that apply to textile farming and production, particularly cotton – we are targeting all of the cotton in our own brand products to be sustainably 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.
