During the recent years, Fairpoint Outdoors has focused on the emphasis of their responsibility to help improving the working conditions in their supplying factories worldwide. As a member of The Business Social Compliance Initiative (BSCI) a leading business-driven initiative for businesses wanting to improve working conditions in supplying factories, we are able to network and exchange best practices to better the labor standards, work ethics, health and safety and the environment in the global supply chain.
This by using a holistic and simple approach. The goal of BSCI is a world of free trade and sustainable global supply chains in which factories and farms are compliant with labor legislation as well as with ILO Conventions protecting worker’ rights. We support our supplying factories in meeting all BSCI requirement. Accredited, experienced and independent third-party auditors carry out inspections at the factories. Discrepancies, identified during inspections, the auditor will address and monitor at a re-audit. At Fairpoint Outdoors, we will continue to encourage the improvement of the working conditions.
