HUMAN RIGHTS

Human rights are an absolute and universal standard and we subscribe to the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the Conventions on the Rights of the Child. In countries where we are present, we aim to support progress on human rights issues, particularly in areas where these may be at greater risk, in accordance with what reasonably can be expected from a commercial organization.

              

GMS POLICY

We have established a Global Manufacturing Standard for Responsible Production (GMS) policy and program which we launched in 2004. It includes 7 fundamental principles based on International Labor Organization (ILO) and other widely accepted standards. The principles include no child labor or forced labor, freedom of association, health, safety and environmental protection. Each of our manufacturing sites continues to aim for 100% compliance with the GMS.
