"The fashion landscape is changing and sustainability, now, more than ever is a responsibility we all share. We welcome this important change to our business and invite you to join us in creating Our Conscious Nation, which seeks to raise awareness and offer transparency around our commitment to holistically implementing meaningful and sustainable business practices, to reduce our impact on the environment, across every aspect of production, right through to packaging and delivery."
P.E Nation uses a fair amount of organic or recycled materials such as organic cotton, hemp, recycled polyester, and regenerated nylon. It sources its synthetic fabrics from Carvico, considered the global leader in the manufacturing of warp-knitted stretch fabrics.
P.E Nation's packaging is now fully recyclable and its drawstring bags are made from recycled polyester (rPET). Its labels and swing tags also include recycled cardboards and post-consumer waste plastics. All woven and care labels are comprised of 100% recycled polyester yarns.
P.E Nation is a proud member of Sedex, one of the world's largest collaborative platforms for sharing responsible sourcing data on supply chains.
It's also a foundation member of the Ethical Trading Initiative (ETI), a UK-based alliance of companies, trade unions, and NGOs that monitors supply chains by the United Nations Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights (UNGPs).
However, the Australian sportswear brand doesn't provide any information regarding how it chooses its network of suppliers, or how often audits are conducted to ensure social standards, good working conditions, and identify potential risk areas.
P.E Nation doesn't sell any clothing made from animal-derived materials at the moment but doesn't state that the brand is 100% vegan either.
P.E Nation continues to significantly improve its environmental impact and build its sustainability practices.
However, it doesn't show any measurement of its greenhouse gas emissions, water, land, and energy use, pollution, and waste across its supply chain. It doesn't have any clear sustainability goal or timeline to improve in the future either.
