In 1851 Carl Franz Bally's responsible business practices were considered pioneering, and this is something that Bally has always remained committed to.
Today, as we stay true to our origins and follow in the inspirational footsteps of our founder, we are continuously working to implement increasingly sustainable business models and approaches in order to improve our environmental and social footprint without compromising on the style, design, and quality of our products.
Bally strongly believes that transparency is paramount. Since 2019, we have published our Sustainability Report annually, chronicling our progress and providing updates on our sustainability journey. Our Code of Ethics, the Supplier Code of Conduct, and the Restricted Substance List - which all suppliers must abide by - are also available on our website. Since 2021, a list of the Tier 1 and Tier 2 suppliers active in Bally’s supply chain has become available too.
Alongside our efforts as a company, we also partake in initiatives such as the annual review led by the Fashion Transparency Index, and projects led by The Fashion Pact, a global coalition of fashion and textile companies committed to the safeguarding of our planet. Indeed, Bally was one of the first signatories of The Fashion Pact in 2019.
In 2022, we proudly committed to the Collective Virtual Power Purchase Agreement for the fashion industry (CVPPA). This initiative, led by the Fashion Pact, is aimed at accelerating renewable electricity adoption by investing in new clean energy infrastructure.
We also joined other key players in the fashion industry by submitting our targets to the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi) for validation at the beginning of 2023.
We continue to look toward the future, cultivating Bally’s deeply embedded ethos of placing purpose beyond profit, and seeking new and innovative ways to do better for our people, product and planet.
