Sourcing sustainable materials

As part of its commitment to use natural resources responsibly, in the past year Kmart continued implementation of its sustainable materials roadmap.

In March 2017, Kmart set a target to source 100 per cent of cocoa sustainably by 1 July 2019.

Building on this commitment, the first chocolate products marked with the UTZ sustainable cocoa certification hit the shelf at Easter in 2018.

In July 2017, Kmart set a new target to source 100 per cent of cotton fabric sustainably for its clothing, towel and bedding ranges by 1 July 20201. You can read more about why Kmart has committed to more sustainable cotton here.

1 Excludes footwear and clothing accessories. The scope of Kmart’s commitment has been reduced since the launch of the project due to challenges identified with sourcing sustainable cotton for products with very small amounts of cotton.
