There is so much potential for us at Sheridan to create and evolve our sustainability practises. At Sheridan, our mission is to see an end to unethical sourcing practises and the exploitation of workers in the homewares industry. Recently, Sheridan and the other brands within the Hanes Australasia Group, were recognised for our commitment to putting the planet and people first by achieving a grade A- in the 2018 Ethical Fashion Report by Baptist World Aid Australia. This is an improvement on last year’s combined score of B+ for Hanes, and A- for our legacy company, Pacific Brands. We also received a special mention for being a leading performer amongst larger retailers for the research we’ve undertaken into our employee’s wage levels and cost of living in our factories.
We’ve come a long way, but we know there is still a way for us to go. We will continue to strive to be a leader in ethical sourcing and seek ways to improve our sustainability practises.
