Corporate & Social Responsibility
Fidir is an active member of Sedex (Supplier Ethical Data Exchange), helping us to keep up to speed with changes and developments affecting our supply chain. We are dedicated to working with our key factories on an ongoing basis to ensure they remain committed to the process of continual improvement of working conditions and good employment practices and remain true to the ETI (Ethical Trading Initiative) Base Code. This is an independent and internationally recognised code of labour practice which ensures employees are of legal age, can work with freedom in a safe environment and are treated fairly without discrimination.
To ensure high standards are maintained, we audit all of our key factories to internationally recognized codes such as SMETA on a regular basis with the help of independent third party auditing companies. We help to train our factories through comprehensive Critical Action Plans on best practice for health & safety and good employment practices to ensure we remain focused on root cause and not just single issues.
