Continental Clothing Wins The Prestigious Ethical Corporation Responsible Business Award

Continental® Fabrics The discipline of social responsibility will continue to evolve if outstanding companies and individuals are there to push it forward. Fortunately, these companies and individuals exist. Londonbased Continental Clothing won the outstanding performance award. Continental Clothing impressed the judges through the scale of its sustainability ambition. The company stripped back its production processes, examining in detail the points at which social and environmental damage could be caused by cotton farming and textile production. It then reduced these negative impacts wherever it could, building in environmental protection and enhanced labour standards, and reducing chemical use. Continental worked for two years on this evaluation and planning project, and the end result was the EarthPositive range clothing with a carbon footprint cut by 90%. Ethical Corporation’s judges said they were “impressed by the sheer scale of the company’s sustainability ambition”. Continental had “found solutions where other people have just talked about problems”.

Soft Fluid Natural Continental® Clothing utilises over 40 unique fabric qualities across its product range, using carefully selected fibres, including the finest Aegean and Egyptian cottons, Tencel®, modal and bamboo, fine polyesters and Lycra® elastanes. The fabrics are knitted with fine gauge and tight knit to provide the ideal print surface for your brand, logo or decorative designs. All fabrics are reactive dyed to enable discharge printing and to ensure colourfastness. All Continental® products are certified to the Oeko-Tex 100 Standard, Class I. The OekoTex Standard is a guarantee of the safety of textiles and dyestuffs to human health and to the environment.

Ethical Corporation Responsible Business 2010 Awards And the winner is... Outstanding Performance sponsored by Accenture Winner: Continental Clothing Highly commended: Marshalls Innovative Reporting Winner: ProduceWorld Highly commended: SABMiller Individual Leader Winner: Andrew Witty, GlaxoSmithKline Highly commended: Kim Couponas, GoLite Best Collaboration sponsored by Advance Aid Sustainability Commercialised Winner: F&C Highly commended: Novartis Effective Campaigner Winner: Greenpeace Highly commended: Environmental Justice Foundation Authentic Communications Winner: Timberland Highly commended: British Land

Introducing Tencel® - The Eucalyptus Fibre For 2011 we introduce a new and exciting fabric quality. Four of the latest Continental® Fashion Forward styles - N90, N91, N92, N94 - are manufactured in Tencel® fine jersey fabrics. The material is well-known for its outstanding physical characteristics - silky softness and luxurious drape. It is perfectly smooth, with depth of colour, an excellent moisture absorbency, and is naturally hygenic as it inhibits the growth of bacteria. Tencel® Lyocell, to give it its full name, is the most environmentally friendly manmade cellulosic fibre available today. It is produced exclusively from the wood pulp of Eucalyptus trees certified by the Forestry Stewardship Council (FSC), and the fibre carries the Pan-European Forest Council (PEFC) quality seal. The only chemical used in the Tencel® manufacturing processes is the nontoxic solvent, amine oxide, that allows closed-loop processing where up to 99% of the chemical is perpetually re-used, minimising the impact on the environment and conserving energy and water. The European Union awarded this process the Environmental Award 2000 in the category “technology for sustainable developments”.

The Fair Wear Foundation (FWF) works to improve labour conditions in the garment industry. By affiliating to FWF, we at Continental Clothing Company have committed ourselves to implementing and maintaining a Code of Conduct designed specifically for the garment industry. Companies that become members of FWF and sign the Code of Conduct take on the obligation to adhere to the labour standards in their own business operations. They also accept the duty to do everything possible to get other companies in their chain (e.g. suppliers) to respect these labour standards.

Our Code of Conduct The Code of Conduct for the Garment Industry is a contract between a company and FWF. Members subscribe to the FWF Code of Conduct and accept independent verification of the implementation of the Code of Conduct. They thereby take responsibility for working conditions in the production chain. The Code of Conduct is based on the Conventions of the International Labour Organization (ILO) and the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. The Code of Conduct for the Garment Industry incorporates the following eight labour standards: 1 No use of child labour No use is made of child labour. Employees must have completed their period of compulsory education and must be at least 15 years old. Any form of slavery or comparable practices such as the sale and trafficking of children, debt bondage, serfdom and forced or compulsory labour are out of the question. Children [in the age group 15-18] may not perform any work that, by its nature or the circumstances in which it is carried out, is likely to harm their health, safety or morals. Conventions 138 and 182 2 No use of forced labour No use will be made of forced labour; this includes forced labour to redeem a debt of work by jail prisoners. Conventions 29 and 105 3 Safe and healthy working conditions Measures will be taken to ensure a safe and hygienic working environment, taking into account the available knowledge in the branch of industry and possible specific risks. Effective measures will be taken to prevent accidents and damage to health resulting from, or related to, the work. Risk factors in the work situation are to be minimised insofar as reasonably possible. Physical violence, threats of physical violence, unusual punishments or disciplinary measures and sexual or other forms of intimidation by the employer are strictly forbidden. Convention 155

68

4 Legal labour contract Employers’ obligations arising from social insurance laws and regulations applicable to a normal labour contract will not be avoided by introducing sham contracts or apprenticeship contracts where there is no intention to enter into a normal labour contract. Young employees must be given the opportunity to take part in programs of training and education.

5 Payment of a living wage The wages and benefits paid for a standard working week will at least match the legal minimum standards or the standards that are common for the branch of industry, and will always be adequate to meet the basic needs of the workers and their families and to provide a certain amount of disposable income. Deductions from wages for disciplinary purposes will not be permitted; deductions from wages for other purposes will only take place insofar as legally permitted. The deductions will never lead to a situation where the employee receives less than the aforementioned minimum wage. Employees are to be informed clearly and adequately regarding their wage specifications, including the basic wage and the period over which it is paid. Conventions 26 and 131 6 Freedom of association and the right to collective bargaining The right of all employees to form or join trade unions and to carry out collective bargaining will be recognised. Employee representatives are not to be discriminated against and are to be given access to all work areas necessary in the performance of their duties as representatives. Conventions 87, 98, 135 and Recommendation 143 7 No discrimination against employees Recruitment policy, wage policy, access to training, promotion policy, termination of employment, pensions and all other aspects of labour relations are to be conducted on the basis of equal opportunities, regardless of race, colour, religion, political orientation, trade union membership, nationality, social background, disabilities or handicaps. Conventions 100 and 111 8 No excessive hours of work The hours of work will correspond to the prevailing laws and standards for the branch of industry. In no case will workers be obliged to work more than 48 hours per week on a regular basis, and they will be given at least one day off in every 7-day period. Any overtime work will be done on a voluntary basis; will not amount to more than 12 hours per week; will not be called for on a regular basis; and will always be matched by additional compensation. Convention 1 Together with the Ethical Trading Initiative, the Fair Labor Association, Social Accountability International, the Workers Rights Consortium and the Clean Clothes Campaign, FWF participated in the Joint Initiative for Corporate Accountability and Workers’ Rights.
