SUSTAINABILITY AT COS
Better Looks Beyond
Our commitment to creating a more sustainable world: now and in the future.
At COS, our design ethos has always put enduring style and quality first. From reaching 93% more sustainably sourced materials in our collection to the launch of circular initiatives like COS Resell and Full Circle, we have made huge progress so far. But that's not enough. We can do more. Read on to find out how we plan to create a more sustainable world for our products, stores, suppliers and customers.
OUR KEY GOALS:
By applying a science-based approach to our work, we can set the best roadmap possible to drive positive change. Together with the H&M Group, we are committed to halving greenhouse gas (GHG, CO2e) emissions by 56% by 2030**. To help us reach this goal, we focus on three key areas...
100% sustainably sourced or recycled materials by 2025.
100% recycled, reusable or compostable packing by 2025.
Reuse, repair or recycle store products and materials by
Our motto is to reduce and reuse. All our new packaging is made from reusable or recycled materials.
Our stores around the world are famous for their conceptual design. We are also proud that they are built with circularity at the forefront of our planning.
Our design team work tirelessly to create beautiful, functional garments and accessories from materials that are more sustainable.
‘Better Looks Beyond is our commitment to sustainability across every part of our business. Sourcing materials is hugely important, but to deliver meaningful impact it is also essential to drive positive change in the communities we are a part of.’
— Francesca Lilley, Global Head of Sustainability
From COS Resell to our garment collection initiative Full Circle, we have launched several circular business models to make sure what we create doesn’t go to waste.
Everything in our collection is crafted with longevity in mind. Here we share tips on how to make your pieces last as long as they were designed to.
Since we launched, we have been building relationships with our expert suppliers who share our values of quality and ethics.
Driving equality and opportunity for all by ensuring women are empowered, treated fairly and are safe in their workplace is a key part of our strategy.
We’re proud to support and work with charitable organisations, communities and pioneering individuals who represent the causes close to our hearts.
THE COS STORE EXPERIENCE
We’re always on the lookout for ways to make our stores more sustainable, from the materials we use in our buildings and construction methods, to extending the life of our interior concepts.
