Together we’re better for people, animals and nature
THE FJÄLLRÄVEN CODE OF CONDUCT
This document is the basis for how we do business and it’s non-negotiable. It’s based on the Fair Labor Association’s Workplace Code of Conduct and covers human rights, animal welfare, environmental protections, sustainable development and anti-corruption.
We provide training and support to ensure our suppliers fully implement our Code of Conduct. We – and third parties – audit and regularly visit our suppliers and if issues arise we are there to support and instigate positive change. We truly believe that what’s best for our suppliers, is best for us.
We’re part of the Sustainable Apparel Coalition (SAC) (http://www.apparelcoalition.org/), an industry-wide group of more than 80 leading clothing and footwear companies and NGOs. Together we share information and best practices, to work towards reducing the environmental and social impacts of our industry.
In 2013 we joined the Fair Labor Association (FLA) (http://www.fairlabor.org/). Like the SAC, the FLA is a multi-stakeholder organisation, but its focus is on promoting workers’ rights and improving working conditions globally. It’s enabled us to improve our approach to ethical sourcing around the world.
The UN’s remit encapsulates everything from climate change to human rights. Its strength comes from collaboration. It’s built on the belief that we’re all in this together. The UN Global Compact, which we’ve signed on to, is a partnership between businesses and the United Nations. Members are committed to aligning their operations and strategies with 10 universally accepted principles relating to human rights, labour, anti-corruption and the environment.
