A key element in demonstrating our commitment to being a socially responsible employer in all our geographical hubs is the successful implementation of our Social Compliance Program for labour practices and working conditions. This program is designed to ensure that, at a minimum, all facilities comply with our own strict internal Code of Conduct, local and international laws, and the codes to which we adhere, including those of Worldwide Responsible Apparel Production (WRAP) and Fair Labor Association (FLA). When external suppliers are being used, they must also adhere to these codes. This is, in fact, a condition for doing business with us.
