David Jones and Elk have joined the sustainability movement, with both set to publish their tier one factory suppliers.

David Jones will release the information on its house brands from next week, in addition to creating a searchable map where customers can learn more about partner factories and their workers.

Ahead of Fashion Revolution Week next week, designer brand Elk will release a transparency report into its supply chain.

Elk has included a full list of tier 1 suppliers which represents 93% of their production.

Co-founder Marnie Goding and Adam Koniaras were spurred to look into their supply chain after witnessing the environmental impact in producing one of their designs.

As a result, Elk has released a report which will allow it to be held accountable to environmental goals, which are forecasted up to 2025.

Elk pledges that by 2025:

It will to operate a 100% carbon neutral and zero-waste business

It will continue to give back to local and global communities increasing support of not-for-profit organisations and community groups

All products will be made with recycled, or certified sustainable materials with full supply chain traceability

All suppliers will operate ethically and transparently with a focus on respecting labour and human rights as per the Elk Supplier Code of Conduct.
