ARNSDORF Announce B Corp Certification

Arnsdorf was proud to announce that it has been awarded a full B Corp Certification after completing a rigorous 12 month audit process. Certified B Corporations​ are businesses that meet the highest standards of verified social and environmental performance, public transparency, and legal accountability to balance profit and purpose.

Jade Sarita Arnott, the label’s creative director says that Arnsdorf’s B Corp certification shows that sustainable fashion is both possible and viable for other brands in Australia.

“It was an extensive process and over the year we learnt a lot about our own practices and how to place transparency and social good in the centre of our processes and thinking…

I believe that B Corporations provide a level of comfort for those customers who are seeking out brands that not only talk about sustainability and purpose, but fundamentally practice it. By being a label that has shown at Australian fashion weeks and holds this certification, we hope to lead the way for other brands, large and small, to review and change their practices.”

In March this year, Arnsdorf was awarded the National Designer Award for Sustainability from the Virgin Australia Fashion Festival, recognising the brand as an industry leader for its efforts to transform fashion in Australia. It was the first fashion brand in Australia to open up transparent pricing online of all of its products.

Anna Crabb, General Manager of B Lab Australia & New Zealand, the body that oversees the process internationally, says that Arnsdorf is setting the standard for Australian fashion.

“As a recognised leader of sustainable fashion Arnsdorf is setting the standard in fashion for critical environmental practices like toxin reduction and remediation,” says Ms. Crabb. “Arnsdorf is a perfect fit for the B Corp community of businesses that meet rigorous, third-party-verified social and environmental standards to balance profit and purpose… Gone are the days when choosing ethical fashion meant sacrificing either style, or your month’s rent, or both… B Corps are finding ways to create beautiful, high-quality, affordable products without compromising supply-chain ethics or wreaking havoc on the environment.”
