Building a sustainable future
The world is changing and consumers are well aware of the political, social and technological injustices. At Portfolio Home, we recognise our responsibilities as a business and we’re determined to help build a sustainable future. We place a priority on operating Portfolio Home to high standards of integrity and ethics.
SOURCING OUR PRODUCTS
We work closely only with trusted suppliers with the aim that the materials used in the manufacture processes are traceable, and socially and ethically-sourced. Our suppliers have factories in Pakistan, China, India and Bangladesh. We regularly review our suppliers 2019 policies and practices and expect them to adhere to our high standards.
Supplier certification must include:
- ISO 90001: 2000
- Oeko-Tex Standard100
- ETI (Ethical Trade Initative)
- SEDEX Member
We assess all of our suppliers to ensure goods are ethically produced. We will only work with a supplier when they can demonstrate best practice on protecting the environment, conservation, human rights and renewable resourcing. As we actively review our supply chains, we have a zero-tolerance policy on child labour, modern slavery or animal testing. All employment of staff by Portfolio Home (Bridstock Gate Ltd) is in the UK and is conducted in line with UK law in regards to employment and health & safety.
QUALITY YOU CAN TRUST
We have a dedicated department that check the quality of our products before they reach our customers – ensuring only the best products are on offer to consumers. We work only with skilled textile designers, approved factories and industry specialists and always try to promote quality methods of production.
Our objective is to protect the environment and to consistently improve our packaging. We are currently working towards widely recyclable packaging across all of our product ranges. Our target is to achieve zero avoidable plastic waste in line with the 25 Year Environment Plan set out by the government.
