Burlington – WE CARE – SUSTAINABILITY AT BURLINGTON
At Burlington, we aim to manufacture all our products in an environmentally friendly and socially responsible way. As this isn't something that can be achieved overnight, we are taking things one step at a time, and will always keep you updated on our progress. So far, we have paid attention to high quality when selecting the materials we use, as this has a positive effect on the durability of our products. In addition, we don't make any compromises when it comes to the quality of our workmanship, as longevity relies on careful workmanship. Our one-size-fits-all sizing system doesn't just make it easier for you to find the right size. It also reduces the number of remnants in our warehouse, preventing overproduction. As a FALKE KGaA brand, more than 94%* of the production of Burlington takes place in our own production facilities in Europe, where we pay attention to good and safe working conditions and appropriate payment.
|WE CARE – for environmental protection
The entire production process, from the manufacture of raw materials to the sale of the finished product, is influenced by our aim of minimising energy consumption, waste, and rejects. The high quality of FALKE products ensures a long life-span. Packaging, which - nowadays - is often made using plastic, is gradually being replaced by alternatives made using organic materials.
|WE CARE – for animal protection
The wool processed by FALKE is subject to strict quality criteria, also in terms of animal welfare. For example, all of our sheep's wool suppliers must demonstrate that the practice of mulesing, a painful treatment used to prevent sheep from becoming infested with certain fly maggots, is not used. The angora wool we use is certified with the CaregoraTM hallmark, which guarantees compliance with strict guidelines to protect animal welfare.
|WE CARE – for social responsibility
FALKE has not outsourced production to low-wage countries, for example, as many other fashion companies have done. Instead, FALKE continues to use its own production locations in Germany and Europe, where 89% of its leg-wear is produced. These production locations are regularly visited and audited by our own specially-trained employees as well as external and independent institutes. Particular attention is given to working conditions, the payment of fair wages, and compliance with safety regulations.
