We are always looking to improve the range we sell, and the most important factor for us is to ensure that we are looking at the most ethical and sustainable options. We are committed to changing the way we work to minimise our impact on the planet whilst continuing to bring you the same high-quality official merchandise.
We work closely with the University's department for Social Responsibility and Sustainability to improve our practices, and have gained a silver Sustainability Award. We are currently working towards gold accreditation.
Fair Wear is an independent non-profit organisation. Its mission is to improve working conditions in garment supply chains. The focus within the supply chain is on those phases of production where sewing is the main manufacturing process. These are among the most labour-intensive phases of the production process. It is also the stage of production where many labour problems are found, and where effective remedy can positively impact the lives of millions of workers.
Fair Wear's Work
Fair Wear assesses and evaluates the efforts of its members to support better working conditions in their supply chain. This includes assessments at the brand level through the so-called annual ‘Brand Performance Check’, which evaluates the implementation of the Fair Wear Code of Labour Practices (CoLP) in a brand’s management system. Additionally, Fair Wear verifies compliance with the Fair Wear CoLP through regular factory audits and a complaints mechanism for factory workers in production countries.
