Olandino is committed to sustainability and supports a wide range of social and environmental programs. These programmes, which cover our operations, and our supply chain and extend to the communities around us, are designed to drive positive change and build a more sustainable future through continuous innovation and collaboration. Combating slavery and human trafficking are core to this agenda.
As part of our current responsibility strategy, we set ambitious goals to address our most material social and environmental impacts. This agenda supports the aims of the Paris Climate Agreement and progress towards the attainment of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.
Expanding on our existing strategy, we have focused on ensuring all raw materials are fully traceable, as well as sourcing 100% organic cotton.

We believe that the sustainability of suppliers within our raw material supply chain is important in ensuring our products are responsibly sourced.
The key raw material we use is cotton.
During the year we introduced new targets in our raw material supply chains to strengthen our commitment to responsible sourcing.
We have a series of ambitious targets to help achieve this aim:
Ensure all key materials are 100% traceable, supported by our use of certified materials where the country of origin is verified and disclosed, we will achieve traceability to a minimum of country level for key raw materials.
Source 100% certified organic cotton, which holds environmental and social benefits is traced through our supply chain via a chain of custody.
As part of our commitment to upholding human rights within our supply chain, we make clear to all our suppliers that any form of modern slavery, including forced, bonded, or involuntary prison labor, is not permitted whatsoever.
We believe respecting human rights is integral to being a responsible company. The prevention of forced, bonded, and trafficked labor is a key element of Olandino’s Policy and Ethical Trading Code of Conduct:
To promote human rights across our direct and indirect business operations, we require our network of business associates and extended supply chain to comply with our Principles.
The Principles apply to all our business associates, which include, but are not limited to: finished goods suppliers, raw material suppliers, non-stock suppliers, construction contractors, licensees, and franchisees.
This outlines requirements that all our business associates must uphold in relation to their own employees and throughout their own supply chain. These include, amongst other standards, the following requirements: that employment is freely chosen, child labor is not used, freedom of association is respected and no harsh or inhumane treatment occurs.
