  • Maintain an open and constructive dialogue on environmental issues with its key stakeholders.

 Nova Swimwear undertakes to engage with its preferred suppliers, internal teams, independent environmental leaders and its dealers, in its efforts to promote sustainability and minimise adverse environmental impacts.

 Ethical Sourcing of Fabric-Based Products

 To achieve its ethical sourcing objectives, Nova Swimwear seeks to eliminate from its supply chain, wood/paper fibre from the following “high risk” sources:

  • Forest known or suspected to be of high conservation value, except where the forest is certified, or in progress to certification under a credible certification system.
  • Material illegally harvested or traded.
  • Material traded in a way that drives violent armed conflict or threatens national or regional stability.
  • Harvesting or processing entities, or related political or military regimes, that violate human rights.

To progress its achievement of these goals, Nova Swimwear undertakes to:

  • Seek information from suppliers on the source of the fibre or other materials in the products sourced for its dealers.
  • Review chain-of-custody information against this policy and supporting operational procedures; and
  • Continually improve the level of compliance with these policies using annual reviews, reports and actions agreed with our preferred suppliers.
