HOW WE WORK

The unique perspectives and diverse talents of our people make the CHARLES & KEITH Group what it is today.

From the boardroom to our stores, we want to nurture our people so that each individual can realise their potential, and collectively we can unleash the potential of fashion for good. That’s why we’re creating an atmosphere that opens doors to opportunity. A culture that is open to new processes, encourages collaboration, supports communities and inspires ambition. Conditions that embolden us to be a business that gets better each day.

Our greatest chance to change the world doesn’t just lie in the products we make. It lies in our people and the places that make them happen.

OUR ACTIONS

WHAT'S NOW

  • Evaluating our Head Quarter office and all our Singapore stores against the Singapore Environment Council’s Eco-shop and Eco-office standards
  • Cutting down the amount of paper we use in all Singapore offices and stores by half (2020 vs 2019)
  • Increasing the amount of sustainable store equipment annually – from lighting to furniture and displays
  • Updating our HR policies to ensure we are a modern, inclusive business that promotes employee wellbeing
  • Training all new joiners on our updated Code of Business Ethics and equipping them with basic sustainability knowledge
  • Establishing sustainable product guidelines and providing our design teams with additional training on sustainable product development
  • Giving our team members in the Singapore Head Quarters two paid volunteer days each year to give back to their community
  • Collaborating on products with regional social enterprises aimed at empowering women

WHAT'S NEXT

BY 2025

  • We will support our Singapore-based team members, from 2020, to devote 15,000 hours of their work-time volunteering to improve their local community
  • We will have at least one pilot eco-concept store or office space to inspire sustainable best practices across the industry

​To make sure we’re always pushing ourselves and fashion forward, we are members of groups that are working together to improve the entire industry. As we continue on our sustainability journey, we aim to partner with more organisations to make the change we are creating even bigger.
