CREATING SUSTAINABLE UNIFORMS.
Since the 1990s, when Jermyn Street Design founder, Susanne Malim pioneered the Body Shop’s first eco uniform, sustainability has been at the heart of JSD’s work for clients.
JSD’s Green Thread Sustainability brings together valuable industry insights, practices, accreditations, and other ongoing, industry-leading Sustainability Initiatives. Such as audits, metrics, workshops and other practical tools and initiatives covering all stages of the workwear lifecycle – from design and sourcing through manufacturing and distribution to garment care, End-Of-Life Disposal + Beyond.
JSD is dedicated to upholding the principles of ESG. We prioritise minimising our environmental footprint as well as the health and safety of our employees and the public. Our Environmental Policy serves as a comprehensive framework for the development and implementation of our Environmental Management System (EMS).
We firmly believe that conducting business should always be accompanied by respect for both people and the environment. We adhere to all regulations, codes, and legislative requirements regarding the environmental impacts associated with our activities, products, and services.
Uniforms and other custom workwear are making an increasingly visible contribution to the circular economy – from eco-aware designs and responsible manufacture to planned end-of-life disposal. Our resources and adaptable approach make it possible for your brand to start the migration of your staff uniform to sustainable work clothing today, without disruption or waste, in a managed, step-by-step transition. This journey is organised by JSD around each client’s unique brand, specific needs and existing operations – because no one is uniform.

Our operations focus on minimising the negative impact on the natural world and promoting sustainability. At JSD, we have adopted manufacturing processes that aim to reduce carbon emissions, conserve energy and water, minimise waste generation, and utilise eco-friendly materials. By implementing environmentally friendly practices, JSD is contributing to a healthier planet and reducing our ecological footprint.
The social component of ESG focuses on taking into account the welfare of our employees, clients, and the communities where our operations and manufacturing take place. We ensure fair treatment of workers, prioritising their safety and well-being, promoting diversity and inclusion, and fostering positive relationships with employees, customers, and stakeholders. By paying attention to social factors, we contribute to the development of a favourable work environment.
At JSD we are transparent about our decision-making, upholding strong ethical standards, fostering board diversity, and implementing responsible executive compensation. Because we have adopted good governance practices, we operate ethically, reducing conflicts of interest, and upholding a high level of integrity. We visit our factories regularly and encourage our clients to come along too.
