Policies & Guidelines
Our business activities involve thousands of workers across the world and have a significant impact on the environment. As such, our sustainability work involves a range of issues from workers’ rights to decent working conditions, as well as animal welfare and chemical management. The welfare of the people making our products and those who wear them, as well as the environment we operate in is important to us. Our range of policies and guidelines describe the ethics, behaviour and requirements we expect from ourselves and our business partners.
Our Code of Conduct requires our suppliers and sub-suppliers to respect human rights, labour rights and environmental protection throughout the production of our products.
Our policies are based on:
- UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights and key UN conventions such as the UN Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
- ILO conventions including The International Labour Organization’s Declaration on Fundamental Principles and Rights at Work.
- Global legislation and industry best practice.
Our global team manages our factory compliance programme, while also working on continuous improvements in the supply chain. We believe in cooperation and incentives in order to improve sustainable business and we therefore work closely with our suppliers and industry collaborations to promote and achieve better standards.
