Sustainability & Supply Chain
At Rock Stone Silk we believe in being transparent and honest in the way we conduct our business. We have a moral duty to our stakeholders to ensure that what we do is sustainable and fair. This means taking a critical view of our supply chain and having a clear strategy that makes us accountable for our actions. Invariably, there are no shortcuts in life. We are always looking to innovate, whether it be through new working practices, changes to our supply chain or the way we interact with our stakeholders.
We believe in quality, integrity and good workmanship. This is the Rock Stone Silk way.
A snapshot of our 'Leave No Stone Unturned' strategy is outlined below:
Look after our people; from the creators, to the makers, to the wearers/users of our product.
Take ownership to reduce our impact on the environment.
Waste reduction, including no waste to landfill;
Carbon footprint reduction in honour of the Paris Agreement COP 21;
Re-usable packing and avoidance of single use plastic;
Seek alternatives to cotton; the industry's impact on cotton producers and the environment;
Promotion of the circular economy.
Our products are made in the UK by British manufacturers.
As part of our commitment to ethical trade and fairness, we unequivocally support and operate according to the Modern Slavery Act 2015. We expect our suppliers to take the same approach; to adopt ethical and responsible working practices, policies and procedures. Should we have reason to believe that our suppliers' practices are non-transparent, nor should they comply with the Modern Slavery Act 2015, we will have grounds to discontinue our working relationship and report them to the UK authorities. If human trafficking is identified or suspected abroad, we shall engage with local support organisations in an attempt to remedy the situation.
