At Ted Baker we believe in being open and honest in the way we do business and doing the right thing by all of our stakeholders; by operating in a responsible and sustainable manner. We approach our social, environmental and ethical matters (“SEE”) with the same focus and attention to detail that permeates the rest of the business. To ensure that we continue to meet our responsibilities in these important areas we formulated a three pronged plan, named Ted3, in 2012.
How we work
Lindsay Page has been given specific responsibility for overseeing the formulation of the Group’s policies and procedures for managing risks arising from social, environmental and ethical matters. In addition, the Board has tasked four members of the Executive Committee to oversee specific areas of our SEE agenda for the Group. These Executive Committee members participate because of the relevance of their departments to our ongoing commitment in these areas – Brand Communication, Product Design, Production and Special Projects (Interior Design). Our full time Green Guardian manages these areas and the Group’s cross-functional team which is responsible for addressing SEE concerns of the Group (the “Ted’s Conscience Team”).
Our Key Focus
We believe in three very important strands of work:
- Protect: The Group is committed to protecting the environment within our properties and throughout our entire supply chain by reducing the use of resources and increasing efficiencies wherever possible.
- Product: The Group is committed to purchasing the best possible products for use and sale within and throughout Ted and associated businesses.
- Practise: This section of our strategy focuses on putting in place a framework to achieve our goals and targets by educating and inspiring our teams.
