Sustainability Practices

New Yorker doesn't do anything to become more ethical and sustainable. It doesn't use any eco-friendly materials such as organic or recycled fabrics.

Most of the textiles it uses are either natural without relevant certifications, such as regular cotton, or synthetic petroleum-based fibers such as polyester, nylon, acrylic, and more.

New Yorker also uses a small amount of semi-synthetic fibers or regenerated cellulosic fabrics such as viscose and acetate.

New Yorker doesn't publish a list of its manufacturers or its processing facilities on its corporate website. It doesn't disclose how it chooses its factories and partners to make its products.

The 2021 Fashion Transparency Index gave New Yorker the lowest score of 0% based on how much the group discloses about its social and environmental policies, practices, and impacts.

New Yorker isn't transparent enough and doesn't reveal how its suppliers treat their workers.

The German clothing retailer doesn't show any labor certification standard that would ensure good working conditions, decent living wages, health, safety, and other human rights for workers in its supply chain.

New Yorker doesn't have a code of conduct that applies to its suppliers and subcontractors. Nothing indicates that it organizes informal visits or third-party audits to improve the working conditions in its factories.

New Yorker 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

New Yorker doesn't show any measurement of its water usage, chemical release, pollution, greenhouse gas emissions, or waste across its supply chain.

It doesn't have any clear sustainability goals, science-based targets, or timeline to improve in the future either.
