Supply Chain Innovation


There is no perfect factory or farm. Local issues and cultural norms - combined with global factors such as economic pressure and consumer demand - result in new and ever-changing threats to workers' rights each day. International supply chains are so complex that it would be impossible for any individual organization or person to solve these problems alone. FLA affiliates include companies, universities and civil society organizations that are committed to protecting workers' rights by promoting adherence to international labor standards. These diverse stakeholders draw on FLA's expertise and learn from each others' experiences to develop ethical and equitable supply chains. Learn more about the efforts of FLA affiliates below and see the impact of our work.

From the Patagonia website: We have integrated corporate responsibility into our sourcing strategy: when considering new factories we take a fourfold vetting approach – one that includes social and environmental practices equally with quality standards and business requirements like financial stability, adequate capacity and fair pricing.

Integrity is defined in one of our core values as always doing the right thing the right way. That starts with the people at Pinehurst Manufacturing and extends to the local and distant communities that we are fortunate to be a part of.  Our mindset of continuous improvement extends well beyond the production floor and into the lives of those around us through our sustainability and human rights initiatives. We will continue to partner with our Customers and supply chain to provide a transparent, safe and eco-friendly environment our employees can be proud of.
