David Jones Launches Ethical Sourcing Programme
David Jones Chief Executive, Ian Nairn, has launched the David Jones’ Ethical Sourcing Program. The hope is that all 1,600 brands in the department store, whether fashion, cosmetics, electronics or any other product, will eventually become sustainable, environmentally friendly, and child and slave-labour free. Nairn said David Jones he said was gearing up to be a “helper, leader and encourager” for all its brands to become ethical players. The store has already made progress. While David Jones was given an ‘F’ rating in the 2013 Baptist World Aid Fashion Report, their rating in the 2015 report was a ‘C’. (Photo: www.smh.com.au, 2014)
