Recover™ operates according to the highest environmental and social standards and is third-party certified.
Recover™ implemented an Environmental and Social Management System (ESMS) to review, evaluate, and improve our environmental and social performance. In 2021, we completed sustainability training for 100% of Recover™ staff.
Furthermore, all Recover™ production hubs evaluate, on a yearly basis, their environmental and social performance through the Higg Index, and seek external assurance through GRS and OCS certifications.
Recover™ products and supply chains are traceable.
In 2021, we initiated our Tracer proof of concept, with milestones including solution selection and application testing. Through this project, we seek to enhance the traceability of our post-industrial waste to the factory of origin via the Reverse Resources platform. We introduced traceability requirements for our textile waste traders.
Recover™ joined the Circular Fashion Partnership with Global Fashion Agenda, Reverse Resources, BGMEA and P4G, in early 2021.
Recover™ supply chains are sustainable and socially just.
Our Code of Conduct for Business Partners and Suppliers covers requirements regarding workers’ rights, the environment and ethics, as well as compliance and reporting. All Recover™ production hubs worldwide are required to apply the Code of Conduct to their Business Partners and Suppliers as a minimum standard, irrespective of the jurisdiction in which they operate and the laws applicable to said jurisdiction.
Our supplier engagement involves a number of processes to ensure suppliers meet our quality and sustainability expectations. They include supplier onboarding, supplier evaluation (quality, CoC compliance, stewardship), and continuous improvement.
Progress in 2021:
- The Recover™ Code of Conduct for Business Partners and Suppliers was created.
- Recover™ set standards and certification requirements for Recover’s Business Partners and Suppliers.
