Now Moods of Norway announces that thy will be open about their factories and vendors.
– Moods of Norway is working systematically to ensure that their clothes are manufactured in line with their values. A complete list of all vendors is included in the annual report to the Ethical Trading Initiative which will be completed this month, says Nils Are Karstad Lysø, CEO of Moods of Norway.
Code of conduct
Moods of Norway collaborates closely with the Ethical Trading Initiative (ETI) to ensure that their suppliers conduct their business in an ethical manner.
– Child labor and exploitation of rights for workers in poor countries, is unacceptable. Therefore all our partners and suppliers must guarantee that they meet our ethical guidelines before we sign any contracts. Last year we conducted over hundred visits to our factories to ensure our guidelines were followed. Even Simen’s grandmother can be proud of us, says Nils Are Karstad Lysø.
Moods of Norway has strong focus on ethics. The company therefore puts great effort into monitoring suppliers to ensure that they follow the contract when it comes to employment in the workforce.
– Open lists are an ongoing assessment and just last year we disclosed the name of our largest suppliers. This year we will publish all the factories as part of our annual report to the ETI, although this may be problematic in terms of combating piracy. We want full transparency in our business and we will do our best to ensure that everyone who wears Moods of Norway should feel confident that the clothes are manufactured to highest ethical standards.
