Dedication To Our Work
In recognition of our accountability for the social impact of our operations, the need to systematically address the issue of potential labour abuses and to safeguard our clients interests, we have developed a comprehensive social accountability programme as part of corporate governance.
We want to ensure that our factory partners respect basic labour standards defined by the International Labour Organisation and basic human rights defined by the United Universal Declaration of Human Rights and encoded the in the International Covenants on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights and Civil and Political Rights
Labour Standards, norms and rules that govern working conditions and industrial relations are regarded as basic labour rights. As such, they are considered inviolable and universally applicable. They form together with the core Conventions of the Internal Labour Organisation (ILO), an agency of the United Nations, the basis of our corporate responsibility and are manifested in a Social Accountability Code of Conduct. It is a requirement that our factory partners display a copy in a factory area which is freely accessibly to the workforce.
Display of Social Accountability
Monitoring is part of the process of implementing a code of conduct. The process of regularly collecting information on working conditions at the production locations, to check whether the working conditions recorded comply with the standards set down in the code of conduct, is a task which forms part of our daily factory visits. Given the complexity of supply chains which arise from outsourcing arrangement and the prevalence of informal labour, it is clear; it is difficult to establish the identity and status of the workforce producing goods, without having a strong on the ground presence. We have immediate access to a team of over 20 inspectors and auditors working in factories everyday and at the head of their list of responsibilities include monitoring and implementation of our Social Accountability programme.
