GLOBAL RECYCLED STANDARD
The Global Recycled Standard (GRS) is an international, voluntary, full product standard that sets requirements for third-party certification of Recycled Content, chain of custody, social and environmental practices, and chemical restrictions. The goal of the GRS is to increase use of Recycled materials in products and reduce/eliminate the harm caused by its production.
The objectives of the GRS are:
Alignment of definitions across multiple applications.
Track and trace Recycled input materials.
Provide customers (both brands and consumers) with a tool to make informed decisions.
Reduce harmful impact of production to people and the environment.
Provide assurance that materials in the final product are actually recycled and processed more sustainably.
Drive innovation in addressing quality issues in the use of Recycled materials.
BETTER COTTON INITIATIVE
FROM JANUARY 2021, 100% OF OUR COTTON INTERLINING WILL BE BCI CERTIFIED
BCI Farmers receive training in Better Irrigation
Practices, care for the health of the soil and natural habitats, minimizing use of pesticides and fertilizers and applying decent work principles. Some examples point to a 40% reduction in water use by farmers in Pakistan and India.
Better Cotton accounts for around 15% of global cotton production around 3.5million metric tonnes.
BCI meets the United Nation’s goals to achieve better global water sustainability and sustainable agriculture.
Chargeurs-PCC has been a member of BCI since 2019.
PROUD MEMBER SINCE 2018
The goal of Cotton Leads is to engage and connect businesses across the global supply chain with the leading efforts in sustainable cotton sourcing and production. By supporting the Cotton Leads programme we are helping to expand the global supply of sustainably resourced cotton.
Growers actively steward this precious resource through new irrigation techniques, no-till practices, in-field measurements and new crop varieties that allow them to use water efficiently and protect water quality.
LAND & SOIL:
By preventing erosion and compaction and increasing soil health, cotton growers have substantially increased yields while reducing their inputs.
Australian and U.S. growers are at the forefront of integrated pest management. They’ve significantly reduced synthetic pesticide applications.
SUPPLIER ETHICAL DATA EXCHANGE (SEDEX)
SEDEX MEMBERS ETHICAL TRADE AUDIT (SMETA)
We are committed to applying, promoting, and supporting the fundamental corporate social responsibility principles across all our business activities.
To make sure that we are practicing what we preach, we have committed to ensuring all our owned sites and those of our supply chain have annual, independent, semi or unannounced SMETA audits for assessment of the ethical, social, and environmental standards.
Following these assessments, we take each facility through a journey of continuous improvement to make them safer and a better place to work.
