Every Move Matters

Protecting the planet. Championing people. Inspiring for change.

Every Move Matters | Clarks logo

Since day one, we’ve innovated. Done things differently, to craft quality shoes that look out for your feet and the earth beneath them. And as we’ve grown, so have our initiatives, staying true to our community-focused roots to support people across the globe.

As part of striving to be as sustainable, conscientious, responsible, and inclusive as possible, Every Move Matters is our manifesto for the world ahead.

Join us as we work to be better – for you, for the planet, for us all.

  • Inspiring for change

    We're change-makers – always have been, always will be. And we're fiercely committed to improving equality, diversity, and inclusivity locally and globally: whether supporting Black creatives in fashion, mentoring marketing talent from the LGBTQ+ community. We will continue to amplify marginalised and underrepresented voices, partnering with more like-minded brands and businesses to keep changing the world for the better.

  • Championing people

    People make us who we are, and we believe in looking after them. Back in the 19th century, his Quaker roots saw William Clark invest in his Somerset community and even build his workers homes – many of which still surround our global HQ in Street. When it comes to our colleagues, partners, and customers, we act with integrity and honesty, with more pledges to our people on the way as we move forward.

  • Protecting the planet

    We crafted our first pair of slippers from leftover sheepskin – so minimising our environmental impact is in our DNA. We make our shoes to last, using durable, quality materials that stand the test of time. And we utilise revolutionary waste-reducing shoe construction for collections like glueless Origin, strive for sustainable alternatives to virgin materials, including bio-based and recycled content, and invest in shoe recycling and resale projects to close the loop and benefit communities near and far.

There’s more to do as we continue our sustainability journey. But we’re stepping in the right direction. Join us on our journey to be better, so you can buy better for the world ahead.

Clarks X The Elephant Room: One Month Mentors

We’re committed to inspiring for change to create a more inclusive world. That’s why we work with progressive UK branding agency The Elephant Room on their ‘One Month Mentors’ programme, championing the personal and professional development during Black History Month, International Women’s Month, and Pride.

Help Close The Loop With Clarks

We design our shoes to go the distance. But, when you’re ready to part ways with your pairs, you can recycle them at UK Clarks stores through our ShoeShare scheme which aims to divert shoes away from landfill and benefit communities around the world.

Our Every Move Matters Sustainability Experts

Leading experts on the environment, sustainable materials, and diversity and inclusion, our Sustainability Advisory Panel work closely with us to support our journey to be as conscious and responsible as possible.

Earth Day: Innovating For The World Ahead

Being mindful of Earth? It’s in our DNA. On Earth Day and every day, we strive to innovate for people and planet - from revolutionary waste-reducing shoe construction to resale and recycling initiatives. Helping you make confident, considered choices with Clarks.

Our Kids Sustainability Commitments

We’re known for looking after kids’ feet – but what about the Earth they walk on? Our children’s shoes are now crafted with five key features that minimise our impact on the planet for the next generation – from recycled materials to responsible leathers.

Our Consciously Crafted Originals

From FSC®-certified rubber soles to thoughtfully selected partner tanneries and responsible leathers, we’re on a mission to craft our icons with extra care for our precious planet.

Our Responsible Leather Journey

Durable and comfortable, we believe leather’s incredible natural properties make it the most conscious choice. And we’re proud founder members of the Leather Working Group, with much of our leather sourced from tanneries that actively reduce waste and decrease their energy and water use.

People. Planet. Policy.

Responsible business is part of our DNA. Which is why we do as much as we can to support the communities in which we live and work, as well as the planet we all call home. Our policies are there to guide us on this journey.
