Ethical and Environmental

Sound business ethics underpin our business and ensure we operate with integrity at all levels.  We have developed a comprehensive Code of Practice manual to help our suppliers understand the importance of sound Health and Safety practice linked to employee welfare at our manufacturing sites.

We have developed our own audit procedure, operated by our supply chain teams in both the U.K. and Hong Kong. This process is designed to advise, monitor and help implement and develop action plans for continuous improvement against agreed objectives.

Sedex

We are registered as a B Member of SEDEX (Supplier Ethical Data Exchange), and are committed to continual improvement of Ethical Trading Standards in our production operations. Our SEDEX reference is ZC1013095.

For more details on SEDEX and what it means to be a member and how it could help your business please go to http://www.sedexglobal.com.

As well as our SEDEX membership, our commitment to an ethically sound global supply chain is also demonstrated by the audits that we carry out with all of our key suppliers.

These audits are based on the 4 Pillars of SEDEX: Labour Standards, Health & Safety, The Environment and Business Ethics  (See more at: http://www.sedexglobal.com/).

SMETA

SMETA , or to give it its full name ‘The Sedex Members Ethical Trade Audit’ was developed by the Sedex Associate Auditor Group (AAG). This audit is designed to reduce duplication of effort in ethical trade auditing, benefitting  retailers, consumer brands, and their suppliers. It was developed in response to member demand for an ethical audit report format that could more easily be shared.

SMETA is not a code of conduct, a new methodology, or a certification process, but describes an audit procedure which is a compilation of good  practice in ethical audit technique 

Our Audit reports are available to view via our SEDEX account.

Environmental Awareness
