With all of its suppliers participating as well as 71 audits and 22 follow-up visits in 2012, Jack Wolfskin is again assuming a pioneering role among the Fair Wear Foundation member companies.
For the third year in a row, Jack Wolfskin is openly reporting on the results and aims of its social sustainability initiative in terms of its suppliers with its 2012 Supplier Social Report. Issues focused on fair wages, environmental protection, fire protection and building safety.
“Last year was overshadowed by the tragic accidents at the factories in South East Asia,” explained Christian Brandt, COO at Jack Wolfskin.
“In our Supplier Social Report, we make it clear that we’ve been developing our suppliers for years and wish to achieve a high standard. But we're also willing to stop working with a supplier, as was the case last year, if the efforts of Jack Wolfskin, the auditors and Fair Wear Foundation do not lead to an improvement for the people.”
Last year, around 45% of the suppliers received a rating of good or very good following their audits. About one third rank somewhere in the middle. 23% fall into the lower rating category, and Jack Wolfskin has been working hard with them this year to introduce new processes and achieve permanent changes for the better.
