Best&Less is dedicated to upholding fair working conditions, environmental protection and human rights in all of its business concerns around the globe.
At Best&Less, we care about providing good quality products that are ethically sourced to the families of Australia. We value being responsible global citizens and we want our customers to be proud of where they shop.
We stand by our Best&Less Ethical Sourcing Code to ensure that all products are sourced responsibly. All suppliers must commit to our ethical sourcing code and Company values, many of which are based on International Labour Organisation Conventions and the UN Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
FAIR WORKING CONDITIONS
We only work with suppliers that honour a duty of care with their workforce, including offering a living wage and fair industry working hours.
All supplier factories are audited prior to us working with them, and are regularly visited and re-audited to ensure our standards are continuously met and improved upon.
Our commitment to honesty and integrity means we will not work with suppliers with unprofessional business practices.
We care about the environment in which our products are made and the materials used to make them.
Our suppliers must implement controls to minimise environmental impacts and meet local and international environmental standards.
In 2016, Best&Less received a 4.5/5 score from the Australian Packaging Covenant, demonstrating our commitment to sustainable and environmentally friendly packaging.
A number of our suppliers are working towards attaining a green compliance factory.
Our suppliers and those who work for them are viewed as an extension of the Best&Less team, and are committed to ensuring safe workplaces and the protection of human rights in the factories that we do business with.
We want to make a difference in the communities we operate in, so we make sure our suppliers take steps to ensure they fairly employ a healthy and productive workforce free of fear, discrimination and abuse.
As an industry leader in affordable Australian apparel, we know it starts with us. That’s why we are always looking to improve our sourcing standards to ensure the imprint we leave on this world is a positive one.
