Our Strategy

We believe in a future where all wool and other animal fibres are sustainable, ethically sourced and traceable. To make this future a reality we invest ourselves in these strategic areas.

Raising Animal Welfare Standards

Reducing Carbon Emissions

Applying Traceability Technology

Our strategic sustainability projects

  • Authentico Index Values

Authentico is our Integrity Scheme to ensure high animal welfare standards and best farm management practices.

  • Drought in Australia

We work closely with Textile Exchange and support the adaptations on farm of the Responsible Wool Standard.

  • Cashmere goats Mongolia

Together with UNDP and Textile Exchange we develop the Responsible Cashmere Standard to raise animal welfare for Cashmere goats.

  • Carbon Neutral Wool

We aim to become climate neutral by 2022 and therefore invest in climate neutral projects.

  • Vicuna

With our Sanin project in Argentina, we raise the standard for sustainable vicuna farming and ensure protection of this endangered species.

  • Carbon Neutral Wool

We invest in blockchain technology to provide the tools to track and trace all our efforts on sustainability and animal welfare.
