Impact

Country Road is proud to be an Australian company, and is part of the larger Country Road Group (“Group”) with the Head Office based in Melbourne.

The Group is on a journey to be a leader in sustainability. We focus on the following areas to guide our approach:

  1. ETHICAL TRADE
    • Code of Labour Practice 
      As the majority of the Group’s apparel and accessories are sourced off shore, the social and ethical implications of manufacturing in these countries are seriously considered. All manufacturers must adhere to the Group’s Code of Labour Practice which is aligned with the International Labour Organisation’s conventions in relation to ethical trade and the Ethical Trade Initiative base code.Our Code of Labour Practice supports the following ethical trading principles:

      • That employment be freely chosen, not forced, bonded or resulting in involuntary prison labour;
      • That freedom of association and the right to collective bargaining is respected;
      • That working conditions are safe and hygienic;
      • That child labour will not be permitted;
      • That living wages should be paid;
      • That working hours are not excessive;
      • That discrimination should never be permitted or tolerated;
      • That regular employment is provided;
      • That harsh or inhumane treatment should not be allowed; and
      • Commitment to compliance with all applicable environmental laws and regulations, and a commitment to environmental efficiency and improvement over time.

      Suppliers undergo regular social compliance checks conducted by independent auditors, or are required to supply audit reports from independent auditors, to ensure they meet the standards of the Code. Click here to download our Code of Labour Practice.

    • Code of Conduct
      The Group maintains high standards within the business and supply chain to uphold ethical behaviours, ensuring compliance with its Code of Conduct.
    • Product safety 
      The Group ensures products are safe, fit for purpose and meet the legal and mandatory regulatory requirements in the countries in which it trades.
  2. SUSTAINABLE FARMING AND SOURCING OF RAW MATERIALS
    • Animal Welfare Principles
      All our manufacturers are required to promote animal welfare by minimising any potential harm, stress or pain to animals, and adhering to relevant national and international standards for Animal Welfare. Click here to download our Animal Welfare principles.
    • Angora
      In response to the revelations highlighted by PETA in 2013 regarding angora and the process of fibre removal, the Group ceased ordering product containing angora in January 2014. The Group will maintain this position until it is completely satisfied that ethical standards of fibre procurement are being followed by the angora industry.
    • Wool
      The Group is a major supporter of the Australian wool industry and many wool products proudly display that they are made from Australian merino wool. A proactive approach to sourcing a sustainable supply of non-mulesed wool has been undertaken.
    • Leather
      We work with our suppliers to source the best quality leathers. Cow, sheep and goat hide (those most commonly used) are to be a by-product of other industries and animals should be humanely slaughtered to ensure minimum distress. We do not use exotic skins.
  3. SCARCE WATER RESOURCES
    • Environmental Code of Practice
      All manufacturers must adhere to the Group’s Environmental Code of Practice (“ECoP”) for the dyeing, printing and finishing of merchandise supplied. This code aims to ensure that within existing technology, no dye or chemical used in the production of garments, fabrics, leather and/or textile related products present an unacceptable health or environmental risk during manufacturing, use or disposal. Suppliers are responsible for ensuring that both their own facilities and those of their third party suppliers follow the guidelines in the ECoP. Click here to download our ECoP.
    • Water tank at head office  
      The water tanks at the Richmond Head Office capture approximately 1,000,000 litres of rain water each year which is used in the office toilets.
  4. ENERGY EFFICIENCY
    • Store Design
      The Group continues to drive energy efficiency and sustainable store design by:

      • Installing LED light fittings in all new and refurbished stores;
      • Using timers on shopfront lights and sensors in back areas;
      • Using only cold water in most stores and timers on hot water systems in large stores;
      • Using paints with low levels of volatile organic compounds in all new stores and refits;
      • Using timbers and veneer from sustainable sources; and
      • Encouraging employees to take public transport to work.
    • The Omni Fulfilment Centre
      The Group’s new distribution centre – the Omni Fulfilment Centre (OFC), has a number of energy and water-saving features including solar panels, natural lighting and rain-water harvesting. The OFC received a ‘5 Star Green Star – Industrial As Built v1’ rating from the Green Building Council of Australia.
  5. REDUCING WASTE ACROSS THE BUSINESS AND HELPING CUSTOMERS TO DO THE SAME
    • Australia Packaging Covenant 
      The Australian Packaging Covenant (“APC”) is a federal government initiative focused on reducing the amount of used packaging that reaches landfill. Signatory responsibilities include the submission and execution of a packaging and waste action plan. The APC provides a rating based on the previous years’ performance. For the most recent ratings period, 2013/2014, the Group achieved a rating of 3.5 out of 5, which is well above the industry average.
    • Reusable cloth bags 
      In FY 2015, Country Road sold over 3400 reusable bags as an alternative to take home packaging. The sale of the bags raises funds for Redkite in Australia and the Red Cross in New Zealand.
    • Office procurement
      Where possible, the Group purchases sustainable office products, which are manufactured with recycled paper and plastic content. In FY 2015 26% of head office supplies products were sourced from Staples’ Earth Saver range.
    • Fashion Trade
      Since 2010, Country Road has partnered with the Australian Red Cross and New Zealand Red on Fashion Trade – a unique clothing exchange program that rewards customers with a $10 discount voucher for donating pre-owned Country Road clothing to the Red Cross and saving clothing from going to landfill. In FY 2015, over 44 000 items of clothing and accessories were donated to the Red Cross. Of these, over 2000 items were donated by customers and more than 42 000 items were donated by the business.
  6. CONTRIBUTING TO SOCIAL DEVELOPMENT PRIORITIES
    • Redkite 
      Country Road partners with Redkite, one of Australia’s leading cancer charities for children and young people. As the Major Program Partner of Redkite’s Red Bag program, Country Road supports families with Redkite’s practical support pack, Country Road has provided over 4000 support packs to date. These packs are designed, produced and filled by Country Road with items designed to make the families more comfortable during their stay in hospital. Since the partnership began in 2008, Country Road has raised more than $900,000 for Redkite through customer, employee and corporate fundraising.
    • My School MyVillage MyPlanet 
      In FY 2015 the Group’s stores in South Africa contributed more than $93 000 on behalf of customers to the MySchool MyVillage MyPlanet program. As one of South Africa’s most successful fundraising programs, MySchool MyVillage MyPlanet is focused on improving education and social development, by raising and delivering essential funding to schools and charities. Every time customers swipe their MySchool MyVillage MyPlanet supporter cards, a percentage of their purchase is donated by the Group to the customer’s chosen school and/or charity on their behalf.
    • Product donations 
      Through Country Road’s Fashion Trade program, more than 44,000 items of clothing and accessories were donated by customers and Country Road, contributing in excess of $2.1 million (in retail value) to the Red Cross in Australia and New Zealand.
