Our Sustainability Journey
Since our launch in 2009, Trenery has been committed to maintaining high ethical standards and we are always looking for new ways to drive positive change. As part of the Country Road Group, we aim to embed sustainability into everything we do - from our relationship with suppliers and sourcing of raw materials, to energy efficiency and waste reduction within our stores, head office and fulfilment centre.
“The fashion industry has a huge responsibility to sustainability, as there are so many processes involved in what we do,” says Jane Grimme, Head of Design at Trenery, “from the growth of raw materials like cotton, linen and cellulosic fibres, to the treatment and spinning of yarns, the weaving and dyeing of fabrics, and to the making, washing, packaging and shipping of finished garments.”
“We are an industry that can and should be innovative and resourceful, and therefore make a big difference to our environmental impact,” Jane adds. There are a number of initiatives Trenery proudly includes in this commitment towards being a more sustainable business.
Jane says: “I am proud to reflect on what we have accomplished so far at Trenery but also inspired by the opportunities to improve in the future. Our goal is to make every product more sustainable by 2020.
