Musto is built upon the oceans and the outdoors. These are the stadiums where our sportspeople compete and our apparel is engineered. Whilst going about our business, we aim to do all we can to reduce the impact that our business has on the environment.
We are committed to a program of continuous improvement and we will engage our business partners, employees and customers to reduce their own impact through sustainable business practices.
Safeguarding the Environment
Fair Labour Policies
When it comes to our day-to-day operations we’re constantly evaluating the strategies we have in place to better suit the needs of the world around us.
Energy efficiency is a key component of our environmental program. Reducing the energy we use through using smart lighting, keeping air conditioning use to a minimum and switching off equipment, rather than leaving it on standby all helps the environment and saves us money. We regularly review our suppliers and, when viable, endeavour to use green power.
Within our offices we provide recycling facilities for all waste products which are recyclable. Our meeting rooms are equipped with large format AV facilities to negate the need for paper hand-outs Within our distribution centre we use reusable packaging for the majority of our online orders and shipments. We have a policy of reusing packaging whenever possible, you’ll notice our online order packaging comes with handy adhesive strips to allow you to use it again. When reuse is not possible, or a box becomes too old to reuse, we recycle. As a business, our total waste output is monitored and certified by Wastepack in compliance with the Environment Agencies Packaging Waste Regulations.
To keep our business operational, we must visit our suppliers and customers. We keep the number of times we visit them in a year to a minimum. Where we do travel, we encourage employees to visit multiple partners in a region in one trip rather than make multiple shorter trips. We have also use video conferencing facilities as an alternative method of communication.
At Musto, we are committed to creating products that are manufactured under fair, legal and safe working conditions. We audit our factories independently according to our 22 point criteria and Code of Conduct for Suppliers (CCS). This is carried out on an annual basis.
We have a good relationship with the select factories we work with and all new factories are carefully screened in accordance with our CCS. If a factory was to be audited and not meet our standards, we would work with that factory to help it improve and comply with our CCS rather than cease trading which could have a negative impact upon the workers due to loss of trade. We currently only assess our tier one supply chain connections but we aim to extend this to our tier two supply chain connections in the future. Our main areas of focus are:
All aspects of employment relationship shall be based on the principle of equal opportunities, regardless of race, colour, sex, religion, political affiliation, union membership, nationality, social origin, deficiencies or handicaps.
We are committed to making a difference to the lives of people in our communities and the environments we work in. As well as minimising our impact on the environment, as a business that benefits from the environment, we have a duty to put something back.
We proudly support the work of the below trusts, charities and organisations whose work is directly connected to the environments where the sports and pastimes enjoyed by Musto consumers take place.
