We’re Working to Change Things, for Everyone
We all have a responsibility to do what we can to protect the world we live in. At Primark, we’re committed to changing the way we do business to reduce our impact on the planet and cut waste. We are constantly looking for new and more environmentally friendly ways of working – whether that’s with the farmers who grow the cotton that goes into Primark products, the factories that make products for sale, the trucks that bring them to our stores, or how we run our stores themselves. Since 2019 for example, we removed 503 million items of single use plastic from our business.
Right now, one third of the cotton in our clothes is recycled, organic or from our Sustainable Cotton Programme. We have now trained almost 150,000 farmers in more sustainable farming practices under this Programme and we will now commit to expanding the programme by another 125,000 farmers by 2030, bringing the total number of farmers in the programme to 275,000.
