BESTSELLER starts process of making supplier factory information publicly available

In 2017, BESTSELLER will take the first steps towards making supplier factory information publicly available.

BRANDE, Denmark, 2017-Apr-27 — /EPR Retail News/ — “BESTSELLER will begin the process of making information about our supplier factories available in 2017,” says Sustainability Manager Katrine Milman and continues: “We are already now sharing various supplier information with e.g. the Bangladesh Accord and other external business partners, and we are now looking forward to getting further into the process of making more information publicly available down the road.”

BESTSELLER does not own any factories but cooperates with suppliers who are willing to meet the commitments of our Code of Conduct and Chemical Restrictions. Every year, BESTSELLER’s brands have approximately 250 million products manufactured at more than 800 factories in Europe and Asia.

“We continuously work to obtain transparency in our supply chain and make positive changes,”says Katrine Milman and concludes: “We expect the supplier factory information to be presented as a consolidated list of factory names that deliver to brands and sub-brands under the BESTSELLER A/S umbrella.”

BESTSELLER’s Code of Conduct describes the ethics and behaviour that we wish to promote throughout the supply chain and is directed at any supplier and his subcontractors who manufacture for BESTSELLER. To ensure that our policies are being followed we have an extensive audit programme in place run by independent third party audit companies. They visit the factories frequently and report back to us on their findings. In each of our biggest production countries we have a number of colleagues dedicated to helping our suppliers improve the workplaces.

BESTSELLER’s Chemical Restrictions are one of the cornerstones of our sustainability work. The restrictions, which are updated annually, are formed according to the precautionary principle and based on the latest scientific research and international and national legislation.
