A further 11% of Ted Baker’s collection was sourced from factories that meet the requirements of BSCI or WRAP, reflected in the Class B score in the Social Scorecard. Overall, 32% of the 2013 collection was produced at Class A or B rated factories, an improvement compared to 2012.
Environmental Impact of Raw Materials
Of all the cotton used within Ted Baker’s 2013 collection, 19% was organic. Overall, Ted Baker increased its usage of Class B fibres including TENCEL®, chemically recycled polyester and organic cotton, accounting for 11% of total material use, up from 7% in 2012. In addition, small amounts of organic wool were used in the collection, which is in the Unclassified category of MADE-BY’s Environmental Benchmark for Fibres. Other materials used include Class C fibre linen, Class D fibre polyester, Class E fibres conventional cotton, wool, viscose and nylon as well as Unclassified fibres silk and leather.
