FENIX, HUGO BOSS, Volcom receive US FLA accreditation

The US Fair Labor Association (FLA), a collaborative effort among brands, universities and civil society groups to improve working conditions and protect workers’ rights, recently announced that German luxury clothier HUGO BOSS, Swedish outdoor gear brand FENIX, and US sports brand Volcom have received accreditation for their social compliance programmes.

The three companies were recognized for achievements in their social compliance programs that integrate respect for human and labour rights into their supply chains, according to a FLA press release.

The FLA accreditation programme is the gold standard for a systems-level approach to human rights compliance and social responsibility. To achieve accreditation, companies must regularly assess production facilities in their supply chain for adherence to high labour standards and must pursue continuous improvement of conditions for workers.

FLA recognized HUGO BOSS for its annual stakeholder dialogue roundtable with civil society, FENIX for its collection of candid factory feedback on its purchasing practices, and Volcom for its comprehensive supplier scorecard to incentivize suppliers to improve their social compliance, the press release added.
