The people and factories we work with are carefully selected by us. We work very closely with our supply chain partners, and we aim to keep having an open and collaborative relationship with all of them.
During 2022 we have been working with new policies and guidelines outlining our social sustainability requirements and expectations to our suppliers. This includes:
- Code of conduct
- Mutual business agreement
- Supplier requirements policy
- Certification policy
These policies outline the standard we expect our suppliers to uphold, ensuring workers in our supply chain are treated fairly and with respect. The policies have been developed in 2022 and will be ready for implementation in 2023.
Our Code of Conduct for 2022 sets minimum requirements for our suppliers, subcontractors and companies that we work with, in order to create a successful and responsible working relationship. We we visit them in person to assess their practices in comparison to our standards, and conduct audits every year to ensure that our requirements are followed. It is divided into 5 sections:
- Working Conditions
- Freedom of Association
- Child Labour
