With an ever-increasing demand for transparency in terms of ethical policies from the global consumer, businesses are under intensifying pressure to ensure their overall business ethos conforms. One cannot simply assume ethical compliance; verification is necessary and it is widely expected that businesses produce and follow ethical policies.
The Team at SpeedStitch is committed to ethical compliance in terms of the general running of our business and in terms of the products we supply to our clients and customers. Being a supplier of school uniform and of thousands of other items of clothing and accessories, we deal with a substantial number of suppliers and brands. When choosing to deal with suppliers we are careful to research their ethical policies and will ensure that there is an express statement from them to guarantee the production and source of their products are ethically compliant. We are proud to advise that the majority of our school uniform items are ethically made in the UK and the majority of non-school uniform items that we supply to our corporate customers for embroidery and print are involved with internationally recognised initiatives such as:
• WRAP Compliance
• Ethical Trading Initiative
• The Business Social Compliance Initiative
• Fair Labor Association • Fairwear Foundation • Oeko-Tex 100 Standard • Sedex Global
We would like all of our customers to rest assured that the products and services received from SpeedStitch are to the best of our knowledge and effort, truly ethically compliant and we are happy to provide copies of ethical policies where required.
