At ********* our clients are smart, sophisticated and savvy women who know that being their best is just as important as looking their best. That’s why we’ve created Responsibly Ann – to let you know about our commitment to doing business responsibly by making products ethically, protecting the environment and caring for our communities. Our clients can wear our clothes with confidence, knowing that they’re dressed beautifully and responsibly. (A&S)
At ********, we believe we have a responsibility to the people who make our clothing and to the clients who wear them, so we’ve created programs and guidelines that reinforce our commitment to making our products in the best way possible. (S)
We Make Products Ethically
Quality products begin with quality treatment of the workers who make them. Our “Global Supplier Principles & Guidelines” let our suppliers know our labor standards, like prohibiting the use of child or forced labor in manufacturing facilities. (A&S)
Our Animal Welfare program protects against animal abuses by promoting a no-fur policy for all brands and driving ethical sourcing practices for raw material sourcing. (S)
Our relationship with our suppliers is built on trust gained through long term partnerships. Like any good relationship, we’ve made strides through good communication and providing our suppliers with the tools to make ongoing improvements. (S)
A key component of this effort is our AT Connect program, which we offer to our top-tier suppliers. These suppliers receive innovative compliance training and support in addition to the unique opportunity to learn the best practices from each other – ensuring that our products are made with the high standards we expect. (S)
We Protect The Environment
Our commitment to doing business responsibly also extends to protecting the environment. In 2007, we launched our Green Initiative to improve our operations and drive sustainability throughout our business. (A&S)
The “Ann Conserves Energy” program trains employees to improve energy efficiency in our stores through simple changes, like turning off lights. Within the first nine months, we used three percent less energy overall and saved over $500,000 in energy costs. (A&S)
Packaging plays a critical role in protecting our products, but it also poses challenges for the environment. So far, our programs have reduced our packaging footprints. For example, one year, we saved an estimated 40 trees and $200,000 annually by reducing tissue packaging. (A&S)
We Care About Communities
In addition to making products ethically and protecting the environment, we are focused on our philanthropic work and giving back to our communities.
Caring About Women:
As a national women’s retailer,********. is dedicated to women and the causes that matter most to them. We support The Breast Cancer Research Foundation and have contributed a total of over $6.4 million to fund research worldwide. (A&S)
To help underprivileged and ill children, ******** has donated nearly $3.8 million to the St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital’s Thanks and Giving program. (A&S)
In addition, our associates have stepped up to help others in times of need. For example, when a massive typhoon hit the Philippines in 2009, we were among the first to respond through corporate and associate donations.
These are just some of the ways that ******** is dedicated to being a good corporate citizen. This means forging strong partnerships, investing in new programs and innovations and continuing to make meaningful contributions to our communities. It also means that our clients can look great and feel great about the clothes they wear. We’re striving to be our best every day…together. (A&S)
