As a member of the Ethical Trading Initiative in the UK, we are committed to ensuring fair and responsible practices across our supply chains through transparency and traceability.
Liberty Fabrics, as part of Liberty Group, is committed to ethical standards within our supply chains, and the supply chains of those we partner with. As a business we are proud to be members of the Ethical Trading Initiative in the UK, and recognise that we have a significant responsibility to uphold human rights in our supply chains.
Liberty has a dedicated Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) department who are responsible for embedding a programme of governance, transparency and training than spans across Liberty Fabrics and other entities within the Group. The principles which are upheld through our supply chains are outlined in our Supplier and Partner Code of Conduct, which mirrors the ETI Base Code and conventions of the International Labour Organisation (ILO). This document is cascaded to all direct and indirect suppliers across the Group, in addition to supplementary policies relating to Child and Young Workers, Homeworkers and Migrant Labour, making clear our position on worker rights issues.
Across our fabrics bases, Liberty Fabrics works directly with both mills and suppliers, who will in turn manage upstream suppliers themselves. With our direct mills, we are committed to rolling out a visibility programme that monitors working conditions at these sites, and with our direct suppliers, we aim to collaborate to ensure we have traceability at mill level. We will chart our progress annually in our Group-wide Modern Slavery Statement.
