Own Operations

Managing impacts within brand owned, operated and/or controlled facilities (excluding any manufacturing facilities).

How is this calculated?


Level 1: Build a foundation and set ambitions

G-Star continues to stay on top of the environmental impacts of its own operations and covers this in its overall CR Strategy. The brand continues to recognise the water, waste and carbon impact of the business’ own operations and defines actions and prioritises measures to decrease these impacts accordingly. G-Star continues to monitor and measure its organisational energy consumption throughout its own operated facilities. Additionally, the brand continues to make its internal teams aware of impacts created by its own operations and advises on reduction measures, resulting in a level 1 score of 91%.

Level 2: Make steady progress

G-Star continues to ensure senior staff members are accountable for its own operations strategy and activities. G-Star has set targets for the reduction in greenhouse gas emissions and has undertaken monitoring of the impacts of waste produced and water used through its own operations. There remains an opportunity for the brand to advance its waste reduction activities from previous years and to further identify water reduction measures. This results in a score of 59% for level 2.

Level 3: Adopt best practice

G-Star has set role specific targets for its own operations goals and continues to demonstrate that the brand occupies buildings with a reduced environmental impact. There is potential for the brand to further implement water and waste reduction programmes throughout its own operations. Furthermore, there is an opportunity for G-Star to demonstrate that its GHG monitoring process is measured in accordance with industry standards and, as a brand, offset remaining greenhouse gas emissions. These activities have resulted in a score of 13% at level 3.
