People and Ethics
As part of the Cotton On Group, we hold ourselves and our suppliers accountable in protecting and improving workers' rights and working conditions. We do this through our Ethical Framework which includes our 14 Rules to Trade.
Our Supply Chain
Our partnership model is something that we are extremely proud of. As part of the Cotton On Group, we
hold ourselves and our suppliers, accountable in protecting and improving workers’ rights and
It starts with us working with our partners to identify end-to-end traceability of our supply chain – tracing where and how our products are made, right through to raw materials. As we work towards full traceability of our supply chain, our focus on transparency has led us to publicly disclose our supplier details on our website. You can find our supplier chain list here.
We also believe in empowering women globally. It's part of our brand DNA and what makes us who we are.
In 2019, we proudly launched an Australian industry-first partnership with CARE Australia as part of
the Cotton On Group. Titled the Empowering Women Workers Project in Bangladesh, the 2-yearpilot
project aims to deliver a bespoke program dedicated to increase the number of women garment workers
in leadership roles. We believe women in all areas of the world should feel empowered, both in the
workplace and in their daily lives.
To date, the program has trained over 1,200 people in three of our supplier factories in Bangladesh. These three factories currently manufacture over 20% of our entire Supre products.
While we’re proud to be part of the change and of what we have achieved to date, we know we are on a continuous road to improve and evolve. We aim to make carefully considered and meaningful decisions at every turn – not just because it’s the best way of doing business, but because it’s simply the right thing to do.
