Brand Performance Check 2017
Social Fashion Company GmbH (ARMEDANGELS) has shown advanced results on performance indicators and has made exceptional progress. In 2016, after 18 months of membership, ARMEDANGELS was able to monitor 98% of its production volume. This monitoring percentage, combined with a benchmark score of 87, means that FWF has awarded ARMEDANGELS the ‘Leader’ status.
ARMEDANGELS has a systematic approach to monitoring and remediation. The company has been present during most FWF audits, has monthly catch-up moments with its suppliers and visits its production locations regularly. Additionally, in low-risk countries the company uses other audit reports to initiate discussions on social standards from the start of the production relationship and to monitor progress.
ARMEDANGELS has a high standard when it comes to its production locations, both in terms of environmental and social standards. It aims to maintain a stable business relationship with all production locations and to grow at existing locations, thereby rewarding suppliers’ progress on improving labour conditions.
In 2016, ARMEDANGELS began its work on addressing living wages with its suppliers. This is still in the initial phase. FWF recommends ARMEDANGELS continue its efforts to gather all required information and move towards implementation of higher wages at its factories.
