Kingly are honored to sponsor the Sustainability Conference 2023 powered by the British Promotional Merchandise Association (BPMA). The event will take place on 8th June 2023 at the prestigious Crowne Plaza in Marlow. It will celebrate the official launch of the BPMA’s StepForward Pledge with workshops and speakers aimed at helping every member business on their sustainable journey. The Conference will centre on the ESG goals the BPMA is focussed on linked to the Pledge; Products, People and Planet.
Inside the Conference Boodie Bag, attendees will get some of Kingly’s organic cotton sports socks, accredited to the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS). These promotional products have achieved an “Honours score” – the highest sustainability rank given by BCome‘s sustainability platform.
Kingly are 1 of only 52 GOTS-certified sock knitters worldwide. GOTS stands for eco-friendly, organic production, underpinned by socially responsible and ethical employment – from fair wages to health and safety in production and in supply chains. These products make a difference as they not only leave a better environmental footprint but also guarantee the well-being of our employees.
The GOTS Standard prohibits the use of chemicals commonly used the textile processing that can cause cancer, birth defects, and other serious illnesses. GOTS also includes restrictions on wastewater treatment and requires target goals and procedures to reduce water and energy. Any stage of manufacturing, processing, and wholesale is independently certified. As a result, the end-users can be confident that their clothes are produced sustainably and under decent working conditions.
Kingly have implemented an anti-greenwashing validation system whereby we can prove our traceability through the third-party Cradle to Gate system and various certifications. All are 100% proven, transparent and traceable. Simply put, if there is no internal certification or transaction certificate chances are it’s a fake. We can supply an amazing range of apparel from T-Shirts to hoodies with many different accessories. The quality is guaranteed by ISO 9001 / 14001 and 45001 certifications and SMETA Pillar 4 audits.
