Acne Studios Performance Check 2015
The Acne Studios Performance Check 2015 shows it has implemented most of FWF’s management system requirements and goes beyond several. The company has 92% of its suppliers under monitoring, hence meets FWF’s monitoring threshold. In the past financial year, Acne Studios bought 76% of its supplier volume from factories where the company has at least 10% of the factory production capacity.
The company increased production volume at its European suppliers and at selected key suppliers in China and Turkey. This move improved its long-term business relationships. Smaller Asian and Turkish suppliers are being phased out as part of the consolidation process. Acne Studios actively focused on mapping and monitoring its subcontractors. Also, good coordination between the different departments, local staff, agents and internal support has shown to support remediation efforts.
Further, Acne Studios has learned a lot about the root causes of excessive overtime by investigating and discussing planning and working hours in China and Turkey. FWF recommends to evaluate the impact of these actions, and to apply them to other production countries whenever possible. Regarding worker and management training, FWF expects Acne Studios to further promote participation in the WEP programme and training opportunities in Korea and Morocco.
