We pay close attention to how we contribute to the wellbeing of our planet and the people in it.
Part of the solution
As a fashion retailer, we have no control over the emissions that occur throughout our brands' supply chains. What we can do is closely monitor and control our own. This includes, but is not limited to, the energy we use in our flagship store, how we deliver our online orders and how our employees travel for work.
From day one, we've used renewable electricity in our flagship store and office.

How our employees travel for work
Our buying team is required to travel across the UK and overseas to meet with our brands. To ensure healthier habits, we have created a Travel Policy to ensure our travel is financially and environmentally responsible. This includes consolidating multiple trips into one, as well as allowing extra "slow" days for alternative methods of transportation.
In 2024, we will report our team's annual travel usage.

A new era for treen: from linear to circular
Though we are in the business of selling new clothes, 2024 will see us expand our business model into Repairs and Resale. This new arm of our business reflects the way in which people are consuming fashion. People are increasingly aware about the environmental impact of buying new clothes and the impact this has on the fashion industry's contribution to the climate crisis.
Repair to reimagine
Open repair station
Most garments can be repaired or remade to extend their lifespan. In 2024, our customers will be able to bring their garments in need of repair to our flagship store. Our in-house experts will discuss their options; they will either extend the life of the existing garments or transform them into something entirely new.
Publish an extensive Garment Care & Repair Guide
In 2024, treen will release its first free Garment Care & Repair Guide in digital and print formats. This will accompany every purchase, helping to create a circular fashion system.
Resale will build loyalty and close the loop
