Responsibility

Industrie Responsible Supply Chain

Industrie is committed to a responsible and ethical practices within its manufacturing supply chain. We do this by developing long standing, close working relationships with all of our suppliers. To produce great garments we need great suppliers, Great suppliers behave ethically. It all just makes sense

Responsible Sourcing and Code of Conduct

We care about where our products are manufactured, by who and in what environment. Industrie works together with skilful suppliers and international auditors to ensure all people involved in the supply of our garments are provided with a safe working environment and are paid a fair and legal wage. Industrie does not support exploitation of any kind. Our philosophy and priority is to build a trustworthy and long-term ethical relationship with our suppliers.

This ensures continuity of the quality, look and delivery of our future products whilst maintaining a visible supply chain. We have worked closely with some of our suppliers for over 15 years and require all new suppliers to pass an International Audit, funded by Industrie, before we will develop any products within their factories.

Industrie provides each manufacturer with a code of conduct which strictly outlines the company policies addressing safe working environments, fundamental human rights & satisfactory working conditions. These are signed by all those involved before any work commences.

Given the importance of our relationships with our suppliers, we actively seek to positively contribute to the working conditions of the people making our products. Any issues addressed in the International audits are swiftly acted on and rectified.
