This code of conduct states the minimum standards that Sabry Marouf expect of all its supply chain partners with regards to social issues and the working conditions of all workers in our supply chain. Our manufacturing business partners are required to read and sign the declaration of understanding which commits them to comply with this code and confirm that they share our values.
However we will not continue to cooperate with suppliers at any level of the supply chain who do not commit to make improvements in cases where our standards have not been met. In those cases we will do our best to work towards a positive resolution, but we will not hesitate to terminate those business relationships if it becomes clear that our values are not shared. We will make every effort to support the fair treatment of workers who may be impacted through these decisions.
Our suppliers are required to align with and support our values as defined in our ethical trade code of conduct. We believe that through mutual transparency of business models, cost base, work practices and goals we can create a better way of working that inherently delivers governance of and best practice in the key areas of ethical trading, environmental protection and business ethics.
These standards are based on the 9 provisions of the ethical trade initiative (ETI) base code which is widely recognised and used as the minimum standard across most industry. Please note that in paragraphs 1 – 9 the sections in italics are not written into the eti base code but are updated additions to it. Sections 10 – 16 are further additions that are widely included in code of conduct issued by responsible businesses. These standards are consistent with the united nations universal declaration of human rights and the fundamental conventions of the international labour organisation (ILO).
* International standards recommend the progressive reduction of normal hours of work, when appropriate, to 40 hours per week, without any reduction in workers’ wages as hours are reduced.
As part of our belief in doing business to the highest ethical standards we have zero tolerance towards bribery and corruption.
