When customers buy our goods, we want them to be confident that they have been produced under acceptable conditions. That means the goods must have been produced:
lawfully, through fair and honest dealing;
without exploiting the people who made them;
in decent working conditions; and
without damaging the environment.
The Arcadia Group Code of Conduct applies to the manufacturer, or any other person involved in supplying goods to our companies. The code is designed to be fair, achievable and easy to check, and to promote the ongoing development of our suppliers.
The code is based on the International Labour Organisation (ILO) conventions and recommendations, and applies to all brands underneath the Arcadia Group umbrella.

Government Workfare Scheme
We would like to make our customers aware that Burton does not participate in the Government's Workfare Scheme for unemployed people.
The UK WEEE regulations came into effect from 2007.
So that you can get your old electrical products recycled, Arcadia have contributed toward the development of recycling collection points (known as ‘Designated Collection Facilities) throughout the UK through our membership of the Distributor Take Back Scheme (DTS).
UK households dispose of over 1.2 million tonnes of electrical and electronic waste every year. This is the equivalent of 150,000 double decker buses and would be enough to fill the new Wembley Stadium 6 times over. Much of the UK’s electronic waste ends up in landfill sites, where toxins put communities at risk.
To remind you to recycle, all new electrical products are marked with a crossed out wheeled bin symbol.
Not all council sites are suitable to collect all types of waste electrical goods. To find out your nearest participating site and for advice on all aspects of recycling at home, please visit www.recycle-more.co.uk with your postcode to hand.
