Each year the Baptist World Aid Foundation research and publish a globally recognised Ethical Fashion Report. This report gives consumers the power to make informed and ethical choices in their fashion, which in turn encourages companies around the world to work in an ethical manner and protect their workers’ rights.
For the second year running, Rip Curl has received a B+ score in the 2019 Ethical Fashion Report. This year, the report has also included a new category of “Environmental Management”.
“With the inclusion of the Environmental Management category, many brands have fallen behind in their scoring for the report,” - Helen Sharp, Rip Curl Group Ethical Sourcing and Compliance Manager.
“Over the past few years we have invested significant resource into research and growth in the environmental space, and we are very pleased that this has been recognised.”
“We are dedicated to improving across the board,” says Michael Daly, Rip Curl Group CEO. “We strive to make positive change year-on-year and will continue to do so into the future.”
Rip Curl acknowledges that it is our job to continue to address the ethical responsibilities that come along with being a global retailer, and we look forward to continual improvement in this area.
