We recognize that efforts to improve environmental performance are the responsibility of businesses as well as nations, communities and individuals. The J.Crew Paper Procurement Policy ("Policy") sets forth the guidelines with which we will evaluate the environmental performance of our Suppliers.
We encourage all Suppliers to exceed this Policy and promote best practices and continuous improvement throughout their business.
J.Crew will give preference in paper procurement decisions to suppliers that meet the guidelines in this Policy. We reserve the right to terminate our business relationship with any Supplier who is not equally committed to our standard of excellence.
This Policy is based on a life-cycle approach with specific emphasis on the efficient use and conservation of raw materials, conservation of natural systems and clean production. In recognition of sustainability as a path, we utilize supply-chain information to measure and manage continuous improvement toward our environmental goals in order to lower our overall environmental footprint.
Efficient Use and Conservation of Raw Materials
J.Crew promotes the use of renewable raw materials as efficiently as information and technology allow. The goal is to reduce depletion of non-renewable raw materials and increase the use of sustainable alternatives. J.Crew is committed to continuously increasing its use of recycled and recovered content where such fiber can be obtained and used efficiently and to maximizing internal recycling efforts within the company.
