D – Brands Fashion has published a sustainability report for the first time. The 24-page document presents the status quo of numerous areas in which the textile company proceeds in a sustainable manner. For example the procurement volume of 3.5 mil. GOTS-certified parts in 2016 rose up to over 5.5 mil. in 2017. The number of items made from Fairtrade-certified cotton rose from around 70,000 up to 2.8 mil. and the share of Fairtrade customers increased by 15%.
Brands Fashion develops and produces high-quality, fashionable work clothes as well as fashion collections for renowned companies in Europe and the USA. The textile specialist’s aim here is to make as many items from 100% organic cotton and Fairtrade-certified materials as possible. “We would like to establish the awareness for a sustainable approach among our suppliers, employees and customers,” explained Uli Hofmann, founder and CEO of Brands Fashion, whose corporate motto is “Social. Green. Fashion.” As part of the Jebsen & Jessen group, Brands Fashion can fall back on valuable resources. Among others, the company Triton Textile, which also belongs to the Jebsen & Jessen group, regularly carries out audits at the producers in Asia on behalf of Brands Fashion and thus contributes towards the transparency in the supply chains.
