We recognize and respect the variety of legal and cultural environments in which factories operate throughout the world. These guidelines outline the basic requirements that all factories must meet in order to do business with us, in accordance with internationally accepted standards.
We believe that no business should ever be complicit in human rights abuses. We promote greater responsibility and encourage the development and use of environmentally friendly technologies wherever possible. We seek to apply both the letter and the spirit of all applicable local laws and to promote continuous improvements throughout our operations. Our business partners are held to these same standards, and we actively seek partners who share our beliefs. We recognize that our own business practices can impact our business partners’ ability to implement these guidelines, and we commit to addressing any challenges for following these guidelines. Business partners agree to take responsibility for their behaviors related to the guidelines, to seek the root cause of problems when they are found, and to build management systems that prevent problems from reoccurring.
