takko performance check 2015
The Takko Performance Check 2015 shows Takko meets most of FWFs management system requirements.
The monitoring system includes 91% of production volume, just above the 90 % required of brands in third year of membership. Because of the yearly audit programme, further consolidation of its supply base, and the benchmark score, FWF awarded Takko a good rating.
Takko has a wide range of suppliers, based in 16 different countries. Close to 50% have had a business relationship lasting at least 5 years. Also, Takko buys at least 10% of the production capacity from slightly more than 70% of producers. However, there is still a large group of over 100 suppliers where there is very little leverage. FWF recommends Takko to specifically reduce this group.
Thanks to its local offices, Takko is frequently visiting their suppliers in South East Asia, and can actively remediate complaints and audit findings. An advanced supplier evaluation tool has information on social compliance by Takko’s suppliers. This tool is accessible throughout the company. When placing orders, Takko considers social performance. In its monitoring, Takko needs to address excessive overtime. Further, it needs to develop a pricing policy where staff knows that their prices are allowing for the payment of at least legal minimum wages in production countries. This also means Takko would know labour costs per product.
Nineteen suppliers participated in WEP trainings. Some showed a more active approach afterwards in resolving issues that workers raised. It is recommended to involve more suppliers in the WEP programme.
