GloveBrand and the Environment

GloveBrand work to ensure that our suppliers share our values and meet our expectations in order to adhere to the environmental standards contained in the Supplier Code of Conduct. We strongly believe in sustainable manufacturing processes and promote responsible procurement and transportation practices. We aim to partner with suppliers that optimise their work practices and continue to explore ways to ensure long-term sustainability. We hope to give our customers the choice of eco-friendly products, and a reduction in  carbon footprint.

GloveBrand suppliers meet standards for environmental and social issues helps reduce environmental impact throughout the supply chain. We partner suppliers who meet or exceed our requirements in providing more sustainable production processes, by giving them our business. We do our best to evaluate the environmental and social performance of a supplier before we partner them.


We consider the following:


  • Environmental Management Practices - we ask if a supplier uses a certified environmental management system such as ISO 14001 to assess and monitor their environmental impact and performance, and maintain legal compliance.


  • Compliance with environmental legislation - for example, we check whether our suppliers have not been prosecuted for breaking the law


  • Are they a member of the Ethical Trading Initiative - this is a UK-based independent body which monitors non-governmental organisations (NGOs) and companies' supply chains in accordance with an ethical code. 


  • A product's environmental impact - we ask about resources used, whether waste is created during manufacture, whether hazardous substances are used, whether packaging is kept to a minimal and whether it can be recycled.


  • The supplier's buying practices - this can be useful in identifying environmental and social risks further down the supply chain.


  • Social responsibility policy and practices - whether the supplier identifies and assesses their own social risks and those of their supply chain, and whether the supplier monitors compliance with International Labour Organisation standards in their supply chains.
