Corporate Social Responsibility
Our approach to Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is simple. ISABELLA QUEEN exists to make a positive difference to its people, the environment and the communities in which it works. We actively encourage our employees to find innovative ways of meeting our wider responsibilities, and as a company have focused our initiatives in five key areas: Climate Change, Reducing Waste, Fair Partners, Animal Welfare and Community Involvement.
Where possible we will invest in renewable energy sources.
We will review our transport policy to minimise our carbon footprint
We will source our purchases from sustainable or renewable sources wherever possible.
We will reduce the amount of chemicals used in our production.
Communication methods between our own premises and third parties will be improved to reduce the need for printed documents and travel between sites.
We will recycle as much as possible from all our sites.
The packaging used for our products will be reduced and made more environmentally friendly.
We will maximise the utilisation of our leather and so reduce waste.
We will only work with partners who share our ethical values and have signed our Global Sourcing Principles and Animal Sourcing Principles.
We will use fair trade alternatives where these are available and suitable for our business needs.
We will ensure that we have complete tracking of the source of all hide products.
We will contribute to charity.
