We run practical and locally appropriate educational programs to upgrade our factory's compliance levels, focusing on transparency throughout the process to make sure that we can have a leading approach to risk management. We're committed to sourcing all raw materials in a completely transparent way.
We work As One, with you, to support your ethical framework and to make a truly sustainable supply chain.
As part of Li & Fung, sustainability is a key part of our corporate culture and today provides a guiding framework for how we manage our environmental impact while contributing to the social and economic development of the societies and communities in which we operate.
Our corporate sustainability strategy integrates actions that aim to improve the sustainability of our own operations and facilities and the work we do with suppliers, customers and industry partners to continually upgrade the sustainability of our global supply chain. Our vision is to use resources efficiently, to add business value for our customers and our sourcing partners, to focus on the health and wellbeing of our colleagues, and to positively impact our communities and societies.
Ensuring that employees are treated with fairness, dignity, respect and that working conditions are safe is a basic standard for doing business. Demonstrating care and concern for people, the environment and the cultures that we work in are as important to us as it is to you, which is why we maintain direct and close working relationships with all our wide-ranging partners.
We recognise that a large part of our success is due to direct and close working relationships with our overseas partners.
We believe that everyone in the supply chain should work to the best ethical standards, and that employees should be treated with fairness, dignity, and respect. Working conditions should be safe and acceptable and demonstrate care and concern for people and the environment.
It is within this framework that we aim to conduct our business.
As part of our Sustainability Strategy, we seek opportunities to efficiently manage the environmental footprint of our own operations and those of our suppliers.
Climate change and population growth are contributing to the increasing costs of resources, particularly as energy, water and raw materials become increasingly sensitive and scarce in supply.
Changes in weather patterns and the increasing severity of storm events also have the potential to impact on the sourcing, distribution and delivery of our goods and services. Addressing these risks as our operations expand globally is challenging; we therefore focus on reducing our impacts by continually looking for opportunities to be more efficient, and to source and use environmentally responsible materials, equipment, building materials and services.
