ZQ is an ecosystem, creating a better, more natural world is a way of life.


ZQ growers and brand partners are committed to protecting our environment, as well as our animals and people behind their businesses. 


We partner with change makers, doing what's right for the world.   

We're all in this together.


We want to improve farming systems and encourage product manufacturing to a level that's sustainable for our animals and planet.


We do this by collecting data in a Life Cycle Assessment (LCA). LCA's evaluate the resource requirements of a specific product and seeks to quantify the environmental impacts over its lifetime.


LCA has its own international's standard to ensure transparency and credibility.

In 2017 we were delighted to achieve a silver status for greasy wool fibre with Cradle to Cradle™. 


We were also awarded the highest platinum level of certification for our material health.

We work with partners that walk their talk.

Part of being a ZQ brand or supply chain partner is sharing similar values in the way wool is produced. They care about their animals, the land and the people behind it. 

It's not a story, it's a way of life.

These values are carried out through all aspects of their businesses. From reducing plastic packaging and championing gender equality, to changing lights or biking to work - you name it.

We partner with change makers.
