Jack Wolfskin has published its second Supplier Social Report, and this year it provides an even more in-depth look at the audit system and supplier performance. With 100% of all suppliers audited and 83 audits conducted in 2011, Jack Wolfskin is once again taking a lead role among the members of Fair Wear Foundation.

For the second time, Jack Wolfskin is providing a transparent and consistent report on the results and aims of social sustainability in terms of suppliers in its Supplier Social Report 2011. “We set ambitious goals again for 2011 and also achieved a great deal,” stated Christian Brandt, COO of Jack Wolfskin, and continued: “We managed to increase our auditing quota to 100% in 2011 as planned.”

With an impressive 83 audits in 2011, continuous certification measures and close collaboration with manufacturers as they implemented their corrective plans, the performance of virtually 75% of the manufacturers could be confirmed or improved. “We managed to improve the production conditions of 27% of our suppliers, whilst 66% remained unchanged and only 7% worsened,” Brandt explained.

As part of the brand performance checks, Fair Wear Foundation audits the management system annually, with a focus on the requirements of the multi-stakeholder initiative. “The company fulfils all the requirements that Fair Wear Foundation demands of its members and in many areas even exceeds them,” said Fair Wear Foundation in reference to Jack Wolfskin’s performance. “Jack Wolfskin utilises extremely systematic and organised structures to monitor suppliers, and in 2011 it managed to integrate all the production facilities into the auditing process.”

Both the Supplier Social Report and the brand performance check conducted by Fair Wear Foundation can be viewed on the Jack Wolfskin and Fair Wear Foundation websites.
