Brand Performance Check 2017

Bierbaum-Proenen (BP) has shown advanced results on performance indicators and has made exceptional progress. With 94% of production under monitoring, BP fulfills FWF’s monitoring threshold for more than three years of membership. FWF has awarded leader rating.

BP has a strong sourcing system that is strongly integrated with its implementation of the code. The pricing practice provides the brand with insight on the labour cost per product. Long-term relationships with many suppliers, combined with often high degrees of leverage at the production sites and regular visits to production sites, mean BP is in a good position to work on the implementation of social standards.

BP has strong systems in place to reduce the risk of excessive overtime; however, living wage issues remain a challenge. BP started a pilot project with one of its core factories to take steps towards payment of a living wage. FWF encourages BP to continue these efforts.

More complaints usually mean greater awareness of labour standards on the work floor, which may be one of the reasons why BP received complaints from workers at their factories in 2016. BP handled the complaints well on preventive steps to uncover root causes of problems and to prevent these problems from recurring. When appropriate, analysis should include incidents at other factories.

Score: 83 Percentage under monitoring: 94% Category: Leader
