we aim to build a business that will last

Our sustainability journey is anchored in the very purpose of the business - to add value to the lives of our customers and worth to our partners’ lives, while caring for the communities and environment in which we operate.

Meaningful partnerships are crucial to a sustainable and responsible business.  We are proud of the positive impact that we’ve had on so many lives over the years, from building long-term relationships with key suppliers to sharing ownership and company success with our associates. Through our fashion-value products, we add value to the lives of our customers and invest in the communities in which we operate. 

We recognise that so much more can be done if we take hands, so we hope you’ll join us as we journey towards a more sustainable future together - "together we do good."
