Making Fashion a force for good at River Island

is our world

It always has been and it always will be. We love the creativity, empowerment and fun that fashion brings to the world, but we want to be mindful of the impact fashion can have on the planet and on the people who live in it.


This is our commitment to building a relationship with the environment and our society that puts in more than it takes out, so that all Islanders can enjoy the pure joy of fashion, free from worry or guilt. So what will we do about it?


We’ve made 12 commitments for people and planet, aligned to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, that guide us towards a more ethical future. We’ve made good progress in some areas but want, and need, to do more. Join us?
