Brand Performance Check 2015
In 2014, Hempage meets most of FWFs management system requirements and goes beyond. 98% of its production is being monitored, and that meets the required monitoring percentage of 90%.
Hempage main supplier is a factory located in China that is also currently a FWF factory member. Audits have shown that working conditions have been improving significantly in the past. In 2014, the most effort was put into resolving the more challenging issues related to wage levels and overtime. Progress was less than expected due to some technical issues and information limitations related to production capacity and piece prices.
FWF encourages Hempage to continue its efforts to resolve these challenging issues in 2015 and to ensure that adequate due diligence is performed when beginning production at other suppliers.
Score: 83 Percentage under monitoring: 98% Category: Leader
