    • Ensure their employees have sustainable livelihoods
    • Do not use toxic pesticides and chemicals
    • Use and/ or develop eco-friendly fabrics and components
    • Minimise water use
    • Recycle, promote energy efficiency and reduce waste
    • Promote sustainability within their business
    • Positively promote ethical awareness through training and/ or other initiatives
    • Support animal rights
    • Support alternatives to fast, cheap production and damaging patterns of consumption
