We are committed to shaping a sustainable fashion ecosystem and we are passionate about making a positive difference in the way we conduct our business. We are conscious about our own social and environmental impacts and we are careful about making business decisions that affect People? and the Planet. We also recognize our unique position in the market to influence the fashion industry to operate in a more sustainable way. In this way we aim to inspire our Customers with a wide range of Sustainable Fashion choices, driving a Circular Fashion Movement in our region.
FloraShe’s Sustainability Strategy for 2014 to 2025 has been founded upon our core values and is centered around four key Sustainability Pillars:
• Environmental Footprint (our Operations)
• Sustainable Consumption (our Brands and Customers)
• Ethical Sourcing (our Supply Chain)
• Responsible Workplace and Community Engagement (People)
• The Strategy establishes FloraShe’s targets for each of the Pillars and sets out the initiatives for 2020.
FloraShe’s Sustainability Strategy is aimed at driving us to achieve more. As we achieve, we will regularly review our targets so that we are constantly on a path to becoming more Sustainable.
The journey starts here!

We aim to create an inclusive spirit behind our Strategy that engenders a strong sense of pride in FloraShe’s Sustainability Commitment and encourages all customers and suppliers to contribute to achieving our targets. This inclusive spirit will be anchored by the creation of Sustainability Committees, and the appointment of Sustainability Champions to help lead key initiatives.

Therefore, FloraShe is committed to reporting honestly on progress against our targets. This includes making information publicly available in relation to FloraShe’s sustainability values and commitments and publishing an annual progress report.
