We audit all factories to make sure that the people who work there do so under safe and fair conditions. Factory audits are done before we enter a collaboration with the supplier, and also during our collaboration.
Our Code of Conduct provides the foundation for work to monitor and develop our supply chain. It is an integral part of our business and sets out our requirements for human rights, employee rights, the environment, impact on children’s rights, and business ethics.
We have zero tolerance towards corruption.
Target: 100% of factories free from critical compliance issues (CSR audits).
Status 2021: 99%.
