Kathmandu branded products: apparel, tents, sleeping bags, packs, and bags.
From Kathmandu's sustainability report: In 2014, we joined the Fair Labor Association to enhance our long-standing social compliance program, and to improve working conditions throughout our supplier network. This membership will give us critical guidance to address unresolved corrective action plans, setting up grievance mechanisms with regional partners, and providing us with a distinct road map toward global best practice.
(WASHINGTON, D.C.) – October 22, 2018 – Today, 123 apparel and footwear companies signed the new “AAFA/FLA Apparel & Footwear Industry Commitment to Responsible Recruitment,” reflecting the industry’s commitment to the fair treatment of workers in the global apparel, footwear, and travel goods supply chain.
The FLA Board of Directors voted on June 20, 2018 to approve the accreditation of Kathmandu's social compliance program. The FLA accreditation report specifically recognizes as strengths Kathmandu's transparent disclosure of its supplier list and FLA-conducted factory assessments on the company website, as well as Kathmandu's collaboration with civil society and other outdoor brands to remediate labor violations in production facilities.
