What We Do

Compliance and Sustainability

Compliance and Sustainability form an integral part of World Knits Ltd culture and a key part of its approach to make sure working conditions meet high standards.

Our approach to sustainability is based on the belief that protecting the environment and people go hand in hand.

World Knits joined the Better Cotton Initiative (BCI) as a member in 2019. BCI is the largest cotton sustainability programme in the world.  World Knits sells either Better Cotton or certified organic cotton.

World Knits is a Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) certified facility. On-site inspection and certification is performed by an independent accredited body every year to monitor and provide a credible assurance for the integrity of a GOTS certified facility.

World Knits adheres to international standards for social and ethical compliance. Social accountability is an important element of the company’s sourcing and marketing strategy.

Unannounced or semi-announced on-site ethical assessments to International Standards are conducted on a yearly basis by professionally certified auditors: –

  • WRAP (Worldwide Responsible Accredited Production)
  • SMETA (Sedex Members Ethical Trade Audit)
  • amfori BSCI (Business Social Compliance Initiative)

In 2020, World Knits used the Higg Index developed by the Sustainable Apparel Coalition to gauge the facility’s social and environmental sustainability performance.

  • Higg Facility Social & Labour Module (Higg FSLM)
  • The Higg Facility Environmental Module (Higg FEM)

The Higg FSLM and FEM verification will be carried out once a year to continuously improve its sustainability performance and achieve its environmental and social transparency.

World Knits Ltd is committed to quality and committed to its customers.

This is why the facility values the ISO 9001: 2015 certification, which has been maintained consistently since 2018.

World Knits Ltd is committed to operating its facility in complete compliance with the applicable Environmental laws in parallel with the health and safety norms for the welfare of employees, customers and interested parties. World Knits Ltd defines the environmental objectives for continual improvement and to improve its environmental practices.

Responding to the planet’s ecological challenges since 2017, ISO 14001:2015 certification supports World Knits Ltd in reducing its environmental impact and understanding the effect the environment has on its business.

Green up its facility space in 2021
