Nudie Jeans Performance Check 2013
Nudie Jeans meets most of FWF’s management system requirements. The company has a coherent and integrated vision on sustainability and social standards, and has a formal sourcing policy that takes code implementation into account. Over 90% of Nudie Jeans’ total purchasing volume is sourced from low risk countries Italy and Portugal. This, in addition to high leverage at suppliers and the stable relationships with suppliers, gives the company a strong basis for effectively monitoring working conditions. The company is making steps to increase wages at one supplier in India. Nudie Jeans can make steps towards analysing the root causes of excessive overtime and how this relates to its own buying practices. Nudie Jeans has monitoring nearly 100% of their supply chain and therefore meets FWF’s monitoring threshold.
About FWF’s Brand Performance Checks
In 2013, FWF is launching a major upgrade to our Brand Performance Checks. A new more transparent, and more user-friendly format has been developed, along with a Performance Benchmarking system. The remaining 2013 Brand Performance Checks will be published in early 2014 once the new system comes online.
FWF has prepared a Brand Performance Check Guide for stakeholders and consumers to further explain how FWF reports on affiliates.Download
