RESPONSIBLE FASHION: OUR JOURNEY TO A MORE SUSTAINABLE FUTURE

At ASOS, we’re about style with substance. As long-time believers that shopping fashion can and should be a positive experience from start to finish, we’re on a mission to make sure that includes its impact on people, animals and the environment, too. We’re growing every year – creating jobs globally, helping local communities prosper in the UK and overseas, using more sustainable materials in our products, and using our influence to promote change in the industry. But with every milestone we reach, we want to think carefully about how we’re affecting the environment and looking after the people in our supply chain.

We know we’re not perfect, but we’re serious about doing this right – from our products and packaging to how we work with partners, people and planet. We’re on a journey to becoming a more sustainable brand, and we hope you’ll join us. Interested? Find out more about it below…

PRODUCTS

We want the clothes you love to work better for our planet and the people on it, whether that means improving the materials and processes we use, innovating with circular design methods, or training our design teams so they're equipped with the right skills. Shopping more responsibly shouldn’t be hard work, so we’ve made it super-easy for you with our responsible edit and our sister site for vintage finds, ASOS Marketplace.

PLANET

How you express yourself should never involve a choice between style and conscience. We don’t stock many products with animal-derived materials, but those we do are sourced according to our animal derived materials policy. Plus, we’re working to switch to more sustainable raw materials, and we partner with independent certification organisations to help make that happen, from Textile Exchange to the Leather Working Group.

PEOPLE

Team ASOS would be nothing without the people in it, from those at the start of our supply chain to those sending out your orders. We know it’s our responsibility to make sure they all have their rights respected and feel safe and secure at work, so we work closely with partners like Anti-Slavery International and IndustriALL Global Union to drive improvements in our business and the wider industry. 

PARTNERS

We want to do better, fact. But we want to encourage the rest of the industry to make positive changes, too – so when we sell other brands’ products on our site, we ask that they align with us on human rights, safety, animal welfare, supply-chain transparency and sustainable materials.

PACKAGING AND DELIVERY

Being extra is a yes from us – but not when it comes to waste. We achieved the targets of our 2015 carbon strategy, which defined how ASOS planned to reduce carbon intensity per customer order every year to 2020 – but we’re not stopping there. Check out the rest of our future plans to see for yourself.
