Odd Molly meets most of FWFs management system requirements. The company’s sourcing policy is primarily based on consolidating the supply base and building long term relationships. Odd Molly actively works on obtaining suppliers’ commitment to the FWF Code of Labour Practices (CoLP). New suppliers are requested to commit to the CoLP before the first order is placed. When supplier is not willing to commit by signing the CoLP, Odd Molly will not start production. To date, Odd Molly has received all the questionnaires signed and returned.
Odd Molly has systems in place to ease production pressure on suppliers. Delivery times and deadlines are calculated in close cooperation with the supplier. The company adjusts deadlines in discussions with suppliers, books material in advance, uses pre-orders and can change ship mode to facilitate production planning at the factories.
FWF has verified that 76% of Odd Molly’s total turnover is covered by their monitoring system. This does not correspond with the required percentage of 90% based on the duration of FWF membership after three years.
Staff of Odd Molly is sufficiently informed about FWF membership and the implementation of the Code of Labour Practices. Training and presentations to staff on the implementation of the CoLP is documented which creates the capacity to discuss social compliance with suppliers.
The member company informs the public and its customers about its FWF membership through its corporate website and in the annual report that is sent out to all shareholders. The annual social report of the previous year has been received in time but is not placed on the website of the Odd Molly.
