Our key values are equality, individuality, thoroughness and dedication. We make sure that these values are echoed in the factories we partner with and that their employees are treated equally and with respect. We have taken steps to prevent workers from exposure to hazardous substances and overtime labour.
We celebrate diversity, freedom of expression and social fairness throughout our supply chain. Consequently, we will not accept discrimination of any kind, harassment or violence. We firmly believe in equality, and strive to ensure that everyone has equal rights, salaries, and opportunities.
Exploring different countries and working with a diverse group of people is part of our DNA. In having a transparent supply chain we have a better grasp on how to regulate working conditions for our suppliers and sub-suppliers, ensuring our production is in accordance with our Human Rights Policy (Read More) and Code Of Conduct (Read More).
RISK AND LOW-RISK PRODUCTION COUNTRIES
We are able to detect factories in high-risk countries that need our immediate attention by mapping our Tier 1 suppliers according to Amfori BSCI's Country Risk Classification (Read More).
We encourage suppliers in high-risk countries to join Amfori BSCI to secure good working conditions for their employees. Many of the suppliers we work with are already members of Amfori BSCI but we’d like for that number to increase. By 2025 our goal is that 75% of our production in high-risk countries will be manufactured by members of Amfori BSCI.
We want to work together with certifed suppliers in high-risk countries because there is an increased likelihood that they are not following Amfori BSCI’s six parameters - voice and accountability, political stability and absence of violence, government effectiveness, regulatory quality, rule of law, and control of corruption.
