Brand Performance Check 2015
Filippa K meets most of FWF's management system requirements. The company has adopted a number of sourcing practices that support implementation of the Code of Labour Practices. Two thirds of Filippa K's purchasing volume in 2014 came from suppliers with whom they have long terms business relations and where the company has substantial leverage.
Fifty-five percent of Filippa K's purchasing volume comes from suppliers located in low-risk countries. With its auditing and other monitoring efforts, the company has monitored over 95% of their supply chain and therefore meets FWF's monitoring threshold.
Due to capacity issues, limited efforts were made to resolve corrective actions from audits. Within the production staff not all product groups work systematically with the same procedures of selecting new suppliers and monitoring impropvements at existing suppliers. It is recommended to set up systemic procedures that are structurally integrated for all product groups in order to align sourcing decisions with CSR goals and objectives.
Int he future, steps can be taken to analyse the root causes of excessive overtime, and participatin in research projects on living wage implementation are encouraged. Filippa K must also work on creating more awareness among workers of their rights.
Score: 54 Percentage under monitoring: 98% Category: Good
