Cotton On tops ethical fashion report

The Geelong Cats on-field apparel partner Cotton On has been recognised as Australia’s highest performing multinational fashion retailer in 2018 Baptist World Aid Ethical Fashion Report.

The Ethical Fashion Report rates businesses on a diverse set of criteria which measure the efforts they have undertaken to protect workers from exploitation across the entire supply chain.

Cotton On became the Cats official apparel partner at the end of 2015 and also is the AFLW competition’s official apparel partner.

Cotton On Group’s Risk and Sustainability General Manager, James Hubbard said, “At the Cotton On Group, the environments in which our products are made, the people who make them and the materials used are incredibly important to us, and form a critical part of our ethical responsibility”.

Based in North Geelong, Cotton On has over 1400 stores in 19 countries worldwide.

The Cats and Cotton On have partnered on a variety of exciting initiatives in their partnership including the Cats short sleeved pre-season guernsey, high-performance elements in the players’ apparel and the new Womens Supporters Range.
