We’re committed to protecting the human rights of people throughout our business and our global supply chain.
In addition to the charitable activities we support in the UK, we take a keen interest in the working conditions, livelihoods and wellbeing of communities within our global supply chain.
We believe that everyone in our supply chain should work in safe, fair conditions and be treated with dignity and respect. Our approach is aligned with the UN Guiding Principles for Business and Human Rights, the International Labour Organisation (ILO) Fundamental Principles and Rights at Work, and the Ethical Trading Initiative (ETI) Base Code.
Supporting workers goes beyond protecting their rights at work, and we continue to provide training, education and other types of holistic support in countries including India and Bangladesh.
Suppliers commit to our code of conduct, outlining standards for working conditions, wages and environmental responsibilities. We also require annual ethical audits for all of our tier 1 factories and priority tier 2 factories.
