We have developed The Thomas George Supplier Code Of Conduct that we require our supplier and manufacturer partners to read, understand and sign. To work with us, our suppliers and manufacturers must ensure that:
Including freely chosen employment, safe and hygienic working conditions, no child labour, non-excessive working hours, no harsh or inhumane treatment, no discrimination, regular employment provided and wages paid in full at regular intervals.
Suppliers and manufacturers must comply with local and national laws related to environmental standards. Suppliers and manufacturers must provide us with written documentation on how they manage environmental impacts within their control. An example of this includes the ability to reduce or totally eliminate the use of adhesives or even to eliminate complete components such as lining materials by creating smooth seamed uppers.
In a world rapidly changing because of climate change, it doesn't seem like a bad idea to want to go about our daily operations with as little impact to the environment as possible. This involves constantly evaluating the strategies we put in place to ensure we leave as small a carbon footprint as possible.
