Managing impacts within brand owned, operated and/or controlled facilities (excluding any manufacturing facilities).
G-Star has an awareness of the environmental impacts of its own operations and has included these within its overall CSR Strategy. This strategy recognises the energy, waste and water impacts of G-Star’s own operations, and prioritises energy and waste as most impactful. G-Star raises awareness of the environmental impact of the brand’s own operations internally and has a team responsible for delivering its sustainability related projects. G-Star has begun monitoring its energy consumption but there remains opportunity to further identify potential energy reduction opportunities, resulting in a level 1 score of 73%.
G-Star ensures senior staff accountability of its strategy and activities on own operations. G-Star has set targets for the reduction in greenhouse gas emissions and has implemented a ban on non-durable plastics. In addition, G-Star has undertaken extensive monitoring of the impacts of waste produced through its own operations. There remains opportunity for G-Star to expand the scope of its targets on waste and to extend monitoring processes to include water consumption of its own operations, leading to a score of 59% for level 2.
G-Star builds upon waste monitoring and measuring processes to reduce waste production year-on-year. In addition, G-Star calculates its GHG emissions in accordance with an industry best practice methodology. There is opportunity for G-Star to further calculate on-going reductions in GHG emissions over a three year period and to formally define a policy on occupying buildings with demonstrably lower environmental impacts. This results in a score of 34% at level 3.
