About our supply chain
Our mission is for our products to be made in a way that respects human rights and the environment. Our global teams work closely with suppliers to communicate our standards and help suppliers build their capacity to provide safe and respectful working environments.
To ensure that our policies and programmes incorporate internationally recognised human rights standards, we benchmark our policies and programmes against those of industry and multilateral groups to continually improve our risk assessment and audit programme. Our standards are derived from the United Nations Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights and the Core Conventions of the International Labour Organization (ILO), including the ILO Declaration on Fundamental Principles and Rights at Work and the UN Universal Declaration of Human Rights. We review our Supplier Code of Conduct against policies developed by industry initiatives (such as the Responsible Business Alliance) and further develop our standards in consultation with NEST, Business for Social Responsibility, Impactt Limited and Verité.
