Filippa K Performance Check 2014
Filippa K meets most of Fair Wear Foundation’s management system requirements. The company has adopted a number of sourcing practices that support implementation of the Code of Labour Practices. Two thirds of Filippa K’s purchasing volume in 2013 came from suppliers with whom they have long term business relationships, and where the company has substantial leverage.
A majority of Filippa K’s purchasing volume comes from suppliers located in low-risk countries. With its auditing and other monitoring efforts, the company has monitored over 95% of their supply chain and therefore meets FWF’s monitoring threshold.
In the future, steps can be taken to analyse the root causes of excessive overtime, and participation in research projects on living wage implementation are encouraged. Filippa K must also work on creating more awareness among workers of their rights.
