Burberry recognises that as a business, it can affect the human rights of employees, workers within the supply chain, customers and host communities. These impacts could be directly through corporate practices or indirectly through suppliers or other

partners.

Burberry respects all the rights referenced in the International Bill of Human Rights, is a signatory of the UN Global Compact and is committed to all its principles, including those covering human rights and labour standards. The approach is informed by the

United Nations Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights.

Having reviewed potential human rights impacts, Burberry has concluded that the most significant are on Burberry employees and the Burberry supply chain and therefore has framed a policy response to concentrate on these stakeholders.

OUR EMPLOYEES

At a minimum, Burberry ensures that corporate conduct complies with all applicable local laws and regulations wherever the company operates. There is in place a global set of Human Resources standards and policies which underpin all operations.

These are aligned to the core conventions of the International Labour Organisation.

(16)

16 OUR SUPPLY CHAIN

The second area of focus is on the labour rights of workers within our supply chain, especially in places where local labour laws are weak, absent or poorly enforced. As part of the ethical supply chain programme, Burberry communicates to suppliers its Ethical Sourcing Policy and Code of Conduct which is based on internationally recognised labour standards. Suppliers are audited against these standards. Where non-compliances are identified, Burberry works with suppliers to resolve these.

The majority of Burberry production is made in Europe - Italy is the largest sourcing country

• Focused on Prorsum (the most fashion forward collection centred around runway shows), London (the tailored collection) and accessories

- Approaching 10% is made in the UK including Burberry’s own manufacturing facilities

- Some production is made outside Europe

• Predominantly Brit (the most casual collection)

Burberry’s Ethical Trading Programme operates a strict sourcing approval process which currently does not authorise sourcing from certain countries including but not limited to Bangladesh, Pakistan and Cambodia.

COMMITMENT TO DRAMATICALLY REDUCE THE IMPACT OF PRODUCTS

Burberry initiated an environmental baseline assessment of

both direct and indirect carbon dioxide equivalent (CO2e)

impacts from raw materials, energy, water, chemical inputs and waste. This detailed analysis identified risks and priority areas to enable the business to focus reduction efforts at a regional, functional and raw material level.

Cotton and leather combined represent 57% of CO2e^ from

Burberry raw materials. • COTTON

- We are conducting a pilot traceability and farm impact reduction project on one of our key supply chains originating in Peru

LEATHER

- We are active members of the Leather Working Group and are working to actively improve the environmental

standards in tanneries supplying >65%^ of accessories

leather

BURBERRY IS COMMITTED TO INTEGRATING

SUSTAINABILITY DECISIONS ACROSS THE BUSINESS AND COLLABORATING WITH SUPPLIERS

• Vendors sites and distribution centres account for almost

1/3 of CO2e^ identified in the environmental baseline

assessment

• We recently conducted energy efficiency assessments at

some key vendor sites as well as all of our distribution centres

• Working with five of our key mills we are piloting the

Sustainable Apparel Coalition environmental assessment

• For several years now we have been committed to

maximising the amount of sample and raw material waste that we recycle

Burberry not only places the highest importance on the welfare of its customers and employees globally, but also on its broader societal and environmental impact. The quality and safety of our products is a vital part of this.

Burberry has a commitment to go beyond required international environmental and safety standards to eliminate from our supply chain the release of chemicals that have an environmental impact.

Burberry is committed to zero discharges of all hazardous chemicals from the whole lifecycle and all production procedures that are associated with the making and using of all products Burberry produces and/or sells by 01 January 2020.
