This is FWF’s Acne Studios Performance Check 2013.
Acne Studios has implemented most of FWF’s management system requirements. In the past financial year the company has been in the process of developing a new sourcing policy that includes a more detailed evaluation of suppliers as a crucial basis for sourcing decisions. Acne Studios generally aims at having long term relations with suppliers. The company sources 36% of its purchasing volume from factories in countries that are classified as low-risk by FWF. Acne Studios also increased the amount of audits that the local FWF audit teams carried out. With that, the company has been able to bring its monitoring threshold to 94% which meets FWF requirements. FWF finds that the company strengthened its approach to monitor and improve working conditions. Steps can still be taken in the area of organizing trainings for workers and management and to make progress towards payment of a living wage.
