Aritzia has increasingly made sustainability part of their ‘fit’. Led by Rebecca, over that past two years the corporate sustainability effort has grown from 3 to 9 people, increased the company’s ESG oriented disclosures, including reporting to CDP for the past three years (and showing year over year improvements), significantly increased their supplier engagement paired with a switch to more responsible and lower carbon fabrics such as recycled polyester through adoption of more sustainable raw materials, and eliminated plastic in their ship-to-consumer packaging. To verify their self-assessments, Aritzia mandate 3rd party verification for strategic suppliers and have seen year on year improvement in their supply chain’s performance. For both these programs of work, Aritzia was recognized by CDP as a leader in supplier engagement.
