At SITKA Gear we believe in conducting our business according to the highest ethical standards. We strive to provide our customers with high-value products that enhance the quality of life and to improve the communities in which we work and live. We expect our employees to work with our suppliers, customers and other stakeholders with integrity, fairness and respect.
Accordingly, we also expect our garment manufacturing suppliers to operate according to the same principle. That is why in September 2019, SITKA Gear joined the multi-stakeholder initiative Fair Labor Association (FLA) to promote and protect workers’ rights and improve working conditions in our contracted factories.
As an FLA member we are committed to ensuring that our garment manufacturers adhere to FLA’s Code of Conduct and independent auditors regularly verify their compliance. Additionally, the FLA conducts its own assessments to confirm the effectiveness of our auditing system.
We are determined to implement effective and state of the art systems and procedures for successfully upholding fair labor standards throughout our supply chains.
