Pentland Brands launches new sustainability strategy
Pentland Brands, the owner of Speedo, Berghaus, Ellesse, Endura, Canterbury and Mitre, has launched a new sustainability strategy as it works towards becoming net zero by its 100th anniversary year in 2032.
Called ‘100-1-0′, the plans will include the brands creating more sustainable products and services as well as accelerating their focus on bringing communities together and supporting causes that matter most to customers.
Pentland is also aiming to having 100% transparency across its supply chain and has pledged to be a champion for social mobility, diversity and inclusivity. Work will include giving 1% of profits to charity every year and the donation of half a million products to people in need over the next ten years.
The company said its commitment to becoming net zero by 2032 will be achieved through carbon emission reductions and off-setting initiatives. This will include the planting 50 million trees by 2032.
Pentland said the actions will improve the lives of 100 million people in its local communities and help them live more sustainable lifestyles.
Sara Brennan, positive business director at Pentland Brands, added: “For nearly one hundred years we’ve been a pioneer of brands that make life better. But our world has changed, and we need to accelerate our actions.
“We know there’s much more work to be done, but everyone within the Pentland Brands family is passionate about helping to create a world that’s better, fairer and greener. Our teams are already working together on the initiatives that will help us to achieve our ambitious 2032 targets.”
