British lifestyle clothing and accessories retailer Fat Face has announced its sustainability targets for 2025 and its plans to become carbon neutral.

Sustainable Advantage has been working with Fat Face helping the company to reduce its carbon footprint by eight per cent over the last two years. It has increased waste recycling by 45 per cent in the last year and by 2025 will not send any of its waste to landfill.

Fat Face uses 100 per cent sustainable cotton. It has committed that, by 2025, all the polyester it uses will be recycled and 100 per cent of its viscose and linen will come from sustainable sources. The retailer says it will prioritise buying decisions to suppliers who go above and beyond responsible sourcing standards, and publicly disclose their first-tier product supply chain, by 2025.

Fat Face has also switched its product bags to recycled plastic, while online delivery bags are now made of recycled paper. It plans to eliminate single-use plastic across the business and ensure that 100 per cent of the energy powering its head office and UK stores will come from renewable sources, in its bid to be carbon neutral by 2025.
