Climate change, equal opportunities & 100% sustainable products
Here are our commitments
Nanushka is committed to responsibility – it’s an integral part of what we do. In 2020, we launched our Sustainability Committee and signed up to a Sourcing Policy and Code of Conduct - and that was just the start. Here’s what we’re focusing on for the future of our planet and its people.
Make Fashion Circular
Commitment:Become a circular fashion business.
How:We’ll implement circular business models and define and execute circular product design practices. We’ll also be eliminating waste from our supply chain by utilising deadstock and leftovers.
Benefits:Waste reduction and beneficial impacts on the climate.
A Future for our Forests
Commitment:Protect the world’s endangered forests and ecosystems.
How:We’ll only source paper and cellulose-based materials from certified responsiblesources and aim to work with new generation cellulosics that don’t come from wood pulp.
Benefits: Forest protection, ecosystem restoration and the reduction of carbon emissions.
Design For Life Mentorship Program
Commitment:Paid annual creative internships for young BAME talent.
How:We’ll be working with an independent jury of diverse industry professionals to choose the successful candidates.

UN Fashion Charter for Climate Action
Commitment 1:30% reduction of greenhouse gas emissions.
Commitment 2:Net zero emissions and achieve carbon neutrality.
How:We’re members of the UN Fashion Charter for Climate Action, a network of companies working together to achieve these objectives. We’ll start reporting and disclosing our progress to CDP, a not-for-profit charity that runs a global disclosure system so companies can manage their environmental impacts. We’re currently developing a climate action strategy to identify processes and practices that will enable us to meet our goals and targets and will be sharing more on this later in 2021. This is the second year that we’ve been measuring our emissions and we’ll soon be publishing our 2020 impact report.
Benefits:Slowing global climate change and reducing outdoor air pollution.
Commitment:100% sustainable products.
How:We’ll only source materials that have certified sustainable credentials in at least 50% of the composition.
Benefits:Reducing the environmental impact of materials, as well as ensuring ethical supply chains.
