Roadmap


2017

Our focus was on driving positive change
across our business and beyond, which
began by refining our Code of Conduct,
introducing social audits to our Tier 1
suppliers, and beginning our supply chain
mapping journey. We also focused on
transitioning to more environmentally
sourced fibres.

2018

 

 

 

Continuous improvement within our supply chain became a priority for 2018 from a social and environmental perspective. Our share of sustainable fibres increased across our whole portfolio and we also started our philanthropic giving program. Renewable energy sources became a key component of our sustainability commitments.

  • 40% of TIer 1 suppliers environmentally audited 
  • 30% of SKUs within our collections contained preferred fibres

2019

 

Evolving our ethical sourcing work this year
was complemented by a vision to challenge
the exisiting linear model and implement
projects that support a circular fashion
system. Our Restricted Substances List
(RSL) was developed, as was our
Sustainability Pledge - a document that
outlines our overall commitment and invites
every partner we work with across any of our
operations to join us on our positive journey
across social and environmental endeavours.
We also instrumented a further push for
greater environmental accreditation across
our supply chain.

  • 85% of Tier 2 suppliers mapped
  • 100% of Tier 1 suppliers socially audited

    preferred fibres 
  • Increased our total recycled component fibres
    to 11%

    footprint

2020

Spell Roadmap
  • Developed our 2025 sustainability roadmap 
  • Aligned our overall strategy with the United
    Nations Sustainable Development Goals
  • Became official partners of the UN Global
    Compact Programme
     
  • Became offset partners of the Aboriginal Carbon
    Foundation
     
  • Our portfolio of preferred fibres grew by 11%
  • 85% of forest fibres were sourced responsibly
  • 56% of cotton utilised was made up of
    responsibly sourced cotton
     
  • 61% of synthetics made from preferred synthetics 
  • 14% of garments were made from recycled fibres
  • Donated $985,513 to philanthropic
    causes

2020 marks the year that we made some major changes to our overall goal setting and reporting. Moving away from our calendar year goals setting and reporting to financial year. It was also a year of extreme turbulence given the Australian Bushfires and COVID-19. In saying that, we still made some major headway including donation just under 1 million dollars to charities for Bushfire Relief.

2021

Spell Roadmap

Oh, the places you'll go! We've changed our overall reporting to financial year from calendar year, and we've also re-energised our sustainability commitments after a tough end to FY2020. The United Nation's Sustainable Development Goals now guide our roadmap and we're focussed on expanding the measurement and offset of our carbon impact - from garments to packaging, we're working to lift our ethical and environmental auditing numbers, we're stepping up our diversity and inclusion work, our collections contain more and more preferred fibres and we launched an internal decentralisation strategy.

Spell Roadmap

2025

Our goals and commitments are coming to life year after year through this roadmap, but we still have a long way to go. By 2025 we are working towards not only reaching full supply chain transparency, but the development and implementation of worker empowerment programs and bridging the gap between our local and global teams. Work with global Artisans will be strengthened and celebrated within our collections.

Our fibres will be transformed from conventional to at least 85% sustainably sourced fibres made up of organic, recycled and preferred and our beautiful prints will all be certified ensuring that there are no harmful chemicals or substances.

We have been working towards not only neutralising our carbon impact by assessing travel, logistics and packaging as well as implementing regeneration programs to restore natural capital in areas close to our production.

Our waste minimisation strategy will be implemented, and address everything from our fibres to e-waste, through the evolution of our circular business strategy.

At Spell we are committed to philanthropy so our philanthropic pursuits will be formally designed and pursued in the aim of supporting organisations that are working to ensure the social and environmental fabric of our planet.
