Throughout our supply chain, we work with incredible partners who share our values of accountability, transparency, and sustainability. We know we’re not perfect, but we’ll always do our best to be transparent and keep pushing for better. We require all our direct cut, sew & finish manufacturing partners to adhere to our Code of Conduct (basically our requirements for ethical operations) to ensure fair labor conditions and fundamental labor rights. These include prohibiting child labor & forced labor, health and safety protections, and meeting or exceeding legal minimum requirements in the locales where they work. Our Code of Conduct references the FLA Workplace Code of Conduct, which is based on International Labor Organization (ILO) standards and internationally accepted good labor practices.
Our suppliers participate in independent, third-party social assessments to ensure fair, safe, and healthy working conditions and continuous improvement.
→ The process
We use a color-coded rating system for our supplier audits. Our goal is to maintain a "Green" or “Yellow” rating for 95% or more of Tier 1 facilities (so our finished goods assemblers and contractors).
While some of our suppliers are in the Orange and Red tiers, we focus on partnering with suppliers to address the root cause, as our goal is always to maintain relationships with our partners and influence better practices.
