Our sustainability work is not only about the products we produce, taking care of everyone involved in all the parts of our operations is equally important to us.
What we do to ensure the fair and equal treatment of all the workers, at our suppliers:
- As a part of H&M group we participate in the Fair Living Wages Program.
- We support trade unions and offer trainings on labour law.
- We do not accept child labour.
- We have a strict global non-discrimination policy.
Weekday / H&M group does not own any factories, but we are committed to improving working conditions and salaries for those connected to our business partners. We respect Freedom of Association and offer training regarding workplace dialogue, negotiation skills, collective bargaining, labour laws etc.
We do not accept child labour, this is clearly stated in our Sustainability Commitment for business partners, as well as in our Child labour policy, which also outlines our expectations for business partners should child labour be found.
When we become aware of a need, risk or opportunity within our value chain, there are many different ways that we can address this. Although we may use different methods for different standards and policies, we always apply three clearly defined processes that help us to ensure we work with the correct standards and policies for the given need, risk or opportunity:
- We identify
- We address
- We report and evaluate
