At Kingly we are conscious of our social responsibilities with regards to helping the environment through our working practices. Our objective is not only to sustain our environment for our descendants but also to rehabilitate the damage previously done. We believe that our corporate responsibility goes beyond our proprietary borders and therefore every effort is made to conserve resources throughout our operations.

This environmental policy has been in force since 2017 and in that time we have made some significant positive changes to benefit the environment.

We have successfully implemented our environmental policy by producing eco sustainable products and packaging which now account for 55 % of our production. At Kingly we do not try, we do. We have the proof behind us to demonstrate these achievements to any interested person or company.

We aim to increase this percentage year on year to fulfil our obligations.

Kingly not only meet existing environmental laws and regulations, but we endeavour to go beyond the status quo and identify techniques and approaches that further protect the environment as well as positioning us ahead of our competition

The growth of our company depends on our abilities to minimise or eliminate our negative impacts on our surroundings. Our ultimate success depends on the environment of the European Union and USA. Without a beautiful planet, our customers will cease to come. Our company’s future and the future of our environment are interconnected.

The following are our specific ideals:

Awareness and Commitment

Our policy towards the environment will be readily available and promoted to our customers. We will endeavour to ensure suppliers and customers are familiar with and implement our environmental commitment and objectives.

Practical Implementation:

-Kingly environmental policy will be available to view on our website and via email when requested.

Transport

Kingly will reduce the impact on the environment where ever possible with respect to transport.

Practical Implementation:

-Seek out and employ local products and services to reduce transport costs.

-We avoid unnecessary travel, and will use energy efficient vehicles and driving styles. Over 90% of all our raw materials are sourced locally.

-We will encourage the use of public transport, cycling and walking

-We will eliminate unnecessary and inefficient use of Kingly owned motor vehicles, and wherever possible, that of other vehicles (including supplier / logistics vehicles) associated with Kingly.

Energy & Water Consumption

Kingly accepts a share of Europe’s commitment to a reduction in carbon dioxide emissions both by attaining greater efficiency in total energy consumption and by continuing to examine the possibility of acquiring electricity from ‘green’ sources when finances permit, either through the purchase of ‘green’ electricity, or through an increased use of solar water heating, combined heat and power plants (CHP), or photo-voltaic.

Practical Implementation:

-Kingly makes every effort to use water efficiently and avoid pollutants entering the drainage system.

-Kingly use energy efficient products wherever practical, and monitor usage to achieve minimum energy consumption.

Waste Generation and Management

Kingly will minimize the production of waste and pollution; including unnecessary packaging.  Kingly will implement measures to reduce the volume of waste generated and to increase the proportion of that waste which is recycled.

Practical Implementation:

-Kingly will look to compost organic waste.

-Kingly has implemented four separated recycle bins for glass, paper, plastic, and cans/tins.

Materials and Resources

Kingly minimize environmental impact with regard to sourcing materials and resources.

Practical Implementation:

-Kingly avoid using materials which have an undesirable effect on the environment, and wherever possible use locally made recycled goods.

-Kingly use contractors who also share a commitment to the environment, and take into account lifetime costs of materials when repairing, altering or rebuilding premises.

-Kingly maximize use of electronic communication and information storage as an alternative to paper, and take into account the environmental quality and impact of food, cosmetics, textile and other products and where possible to purchase them locally.

Natural Environment

Kingly help to protect and enhance natural habitats and wildlife, take appropriate opportunities to enhance them and be sensitive to landscape issues. We look to minimize impact on local wildlife, and to look for opportunities to work with the local community in caring for the local environment. Kingly endeavour to be aware of local planning developments and take appropriate action where these are potentially damaging to the environment.

Building awareness of environmental concerns

Kingly is actively creating awareness of environmental concerns by using social media, trade fairs and publications. In addition, we sponsor events related to eco sustainability and environmental concerns.

Kingly upcycled revolution

We have been extremely active in introducing a closed circular loop in the production of certain textile products like knitted socks, sweaters, beanies and scarves. These upcycled products score the highest on the HIGG INDEX, in fact higher than Organic cultivated apparel. The higher the score, the more eco sustainable they are.

Thank you for helping us to help the environment.
