Sustainability Practices

Musto uses a medium proportion of organic materials such as organic cotton or recycled materials such as recycled polyester, regenerated nylon, or semi-synthetic fibers such as viscose.

Many of its fabrics are either natural without relevant certifications, such as regular cotton, or synthetic petroleum-based fibers such as polyester, nylon, acrylic, and more.

Musto publishes a list of all its manufacturers and many of its processing facilities on its corporate website. It aims to respect, protect and promote ethical values, human rights, and the environment.

Musto manufactures its clothes in Turkey and many other East Asian countries, where human rights and labor law violations happen every day.

The British clothing retailer does show some labor certification standards that could ensure good working conditions, health, safety, and other crucial rights for workers in its supply chain.

Musto has a code of conduct that applies to all its suppliers and subcontractors based on the regulations set by the International Labor Organization (ILO).

Musto assesses compliance with its Code of Conduct by organizing valid factory inspections. It requires a C rating or better for a BSCI audit.

Musto doesn't use exotic animal skin, hair, fur, or angora. But it uses leather and wool to manufacture many of its clothing pieces.

These animal-derived materials are cruel and unethical. They also harm the environment by producing greenhouse gases and waste. More sustainable alternatives exist.

Sustainability Goals

Musto doesn't measure its greenhouse gas emissions, water, land, energy use, pollution, and waste across the supply chain. It doesn't have any clear sustainability goals, science-based targets, or timelines to improve in the future.
