SUpplier responsibility

All over the world, BrandCharger products are distributed. And we want to make sure that each person in the chain is treated with dignity and respect. This is why we think it is important to educate and empower workers, and help preserve our environment’s precious resources for future generations. A massive challenge for our young company. 

Around the globe, BrandCharger employees and partners are united in bringing equality, human rights, and respect for the environment to the deepest layers of our supply chain.

Accountability

We go deep into our supply chain to enforce
our social and environmental standards. 

Accountability and improvement — for our suppliers and for ourselves — are among our core objectives. 
So we continually strengthen our Supplier Code of Conduct to help implement safer and more ethical working conditions. 
When we find noncompliance, which we do in every audit, we partner with suppliers and work onsite to drive change.
And then we work to raise the bar even higher.


Labor & Human Rights

We demand that suppliers treat workers fairly and
ethically at all times.

Every supplier that does business with BrandCharger must demonstrate the highest commitment
to protecting workers’ rights. T
his includes abiding by a maximum 60-hour workweek.
Last year, 100 percent of all our suppliers’ workweeks were compliant 
with our 60-hour maximum standard.
It also means holding suppliers accountable to ethical hiring practices.

Health & Safety

We insist on safe and healthy facilities for all workers.

Whether it’s in Rotterdam or Shenzhen, worker safety is of paramount importance. 
We’ve found that well-trained managers and employees are essential to the process. 
Since 2011 we require BSCI compliance from all our manufacturers.

environment

We hold our products and processes to
the highest environmental standards.
