Suitsupply Performance Check 2013
Suitsupply is in process of implementing FWFs management system requirements. The sourcing practices of Suitsupply generally support effective implementation of the Code of Labour Practices. The company has a strong presence in China where they have permanent staff who contribute to a systematic approach towards improving working conditions. Suitsupply has a consolidated supplier base and maintains a business relation for more than 5 years with over half of its suppliers. Steps can be taken in the area of living wages and with regards to training workers on their rights.
In 2012 the monitoring activities of Suitsupply covered 61% of its purchasing volume. Suppliers that are based in low risk countries (Spain, Portugal and Italy) represent 25% of the purchasing volume. This means that Suitsupply is just below the required percentage based on the duration of FWF membership (which is 90% for the fifth year of membership).
About FWF’s Brand Performance Check
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
