QUIZ reduces environmental footprint with new sustainability initiatives
Quiz has confirmed the introduction of various sustainability initiatives to help reduce the company's energy consumption and environmental footprint.
The initiatives will see Quiz switching to 100% carbon free renewable energy at its head office, distribution centre and 67 stores across the UK and Ireland. The introduction of 100% renewable energy will save over 900 tonnes of carbon each year, with the figure increasing through the introduction of other smaller initiatives, such as switching to zero carbon paper and carbon neutral water dispensers.
QUIZ has also taken steps to limit its environmental impact by reducing the amount of waste produced across its supply chain. The brand has launched 100% recycled and recyclable bags for all ecommerce orders and in-store purchases, which has reduced its annual virgin plastic use by 40 tonnes.
Quiz also confirmed its plans to launch at sustainable range in 2022. All styles within the collection are designed and manufactured in the UK, featuring yarns derived from recycled components and water-based dyes used on soft fabrics to reduce its environmental impact.
Sheraz Ramzan, Chief Commercial Officer at QUIZ, said: “Following a period of research, we are really pleased to announce the sustainability measures we have put in place to further minimise the company’s environmental footprint. These measures are part of our wider responsibility strategy, and by no means signal the end of our efforts. We will be continuing to look at how we can improve and are excited to build on this good progress into 2022.”
