We comply with the highest standards of social accountability and have implemented measures to ensure we only work with organisations with the same ethical employment values. By protecting employees, we not only protect our own business interests, but the respected brands of our customers.

Social accountability is a vital measure of a company's approach to human rights, employment and regard for the community. The social accountability of every business that operates within our supply chain is a reflection on our own brand, and therefore we must ensure all our business partners operate to the same high standard as we do. Every one of our suppliers has been audited to ensure it adheres to the strictest regulations that control important issues such as minimum working age, health and safety, workplace discrimination and working hours. If a supplier can't provide certification, we carry out an audit using an independent, certified and licensed quality-control company.
