Rohan has been a member of the Ethical Trading Initiative (ETI)
This is an alliance of companies, Non-Governmental Organisations (NGOs) and trade unions working together to improve the conditions for overseas workers producing for the UK market. We chose to join the ETI as it seems to us the most effective and responsible way of getting things done.
We have adopted the ETI Base Code
as our code of conduct. The Base Code clearly sets out standards for the treatment of factory workers in all areas such as wages, working hours, conditions, forced and child labour.
All our garment suppliers have formally agreed with us to abide by this code.
We build proper partnerships with our factories so that we can maintain high quality standards and together work on all ethical issues.
Rohan works with a relatively small number of partner factories and our product teams regularly visit suppliers throughout the year. Additionally, we use independent auditors to add a further level of inspection.
We are pleased to have made a number of pay and safety improvements as a result of our action points raised by our independent auditors.
