ODLO Performance Check 2015
ODLO meets most of FWFs management system requirements and goes beyond several. At 90%, ODLO’s monitoring percentage meets the 90% monitoring threshold required for members beyond their third year of membership.
ODLO has long-lasting relationships with most suppliers and owns two production sites in Romania and Portugal. This, as well as a high leverage at most suppliers, allows effective work on implementing FWF’s Code of Labour Practices.
During their last financial year, ODLO has made considerable efforts to set up a systematic due diligence process for selecting new suppliers as well as a risk assessment system.
Challenges remain in adressing structural issues such as dialogue between workers and management or excessive overtime, especially at suppliers where ODLO only has little leverage. ODLO can motivate more suppliers to participate in FWF’s Workplace Education Programme to stimulate dialogue between workers and management.
