Primark Manufactures More Than Half of Clothing from Eco-Friendly Materials

Significant progress has been announced by Primark towards its aim of utilizing solely reused or responsibly acquired materials for all its garments by 2030.

During this year, over fifty percent of the garments it produced were created from these kinds of materials, a rise from 45% the previous year, as indicated in its 2023 Sustainability and Ethics Report.

The corporation expanded its utilization of sustainable cotton, with 46% of cotton apparel incorporating organic, reused, or sourced from the Primark Sustainable Cotton Programme, an increase from 40% the previous year.

Furthermore, TrusTrace, a traceability and conformity platform, has been implemented by Primark to compile information from the entire supply chain, from raw materials to finalized products. This effort will support the fashion chain in comprehending and managing its supply chain more effectively.

According to Lynne Walker, the director of Primark Cares, “Primark Cares is propelling all individuals in Primark to change. The second year was focused on building momentum: expanding and incorporating the principles, programs, and processes that will guide us to 2030 and beyond, while recognizing the lessons we encounter along the way.”

“We are persistently collaborating with our associates and providers to drive change, and we have gained invaluable insight into how essential collaboration is for fulfilling our Primark Cares commitments. We have also concentrated on enhancing the skills and training of our colleagues, who play a vital role in effecting change in our business.”

Earlier this month, ABF, Primark’s parent company, reported “outstanding” trading at the discount chain as it strives for increased profits in the upcoming year.

The increased sales have been attributed by the retailer not only to price hikes, but also to well-received product arrays, strong customer traffic, successful new stores, and the introduction of its redesigned website.
