John Lewis joins Canopy Pack4Good initiative

In a partnership with the environmental not-for-profit Canopy, John Lewis has become the largest UK retailer to sign up to the Pack4Good initiative

Signatories to the scheme commit to ensuring that none of their packaging is sourced from ancient and endangered forests in their textile and packaging supply chains.

Marija Rompani, director of sustainability and ethics at the John Lewis Partnership, said: “I’m excited that John Lewis is building on our existing work with Canopy, by now also supporting the Pack4Good initiative. We’re committed to protecting and restoring nature, and we constantly strive to reduce and improve our packaging.”

Some 16 brands from across the world have signed up to the scheme, including Zadig & Voltaire, C&A and House of Hackney.

Nicole Rycroft, founder and executive director of Canopy, said: “We are so pleased to welcome John Lewis into the Canopy fold on Earth Day. There is no better time to keep forests standing and to transform today’s take-make-waste supply chains that underpin the global climate and biodiversity crises. NextGen production is the future – we’re excited to expand our community of partners working to build a better future for our planet.”

John Lewis has also recently removed paper delivery notes from its customer orders. The retailer predicts that the change will save up to 26 million pieces of paper, equating to a possible 115 tonnes of material, and 155 tonnes in carbon emissions saved.
