Responsible Sourcing

Corporate Responsibility

Abiding Practices

Doing business with us means abiding by all of the laws that govern our industry. We require our merchandise partners and their supply chain to adhere to laws and treaties, both domestic and international. We enforce compliance with independent, professional third parties, and diligently monitor and provide capacity building to our supply chain to drive the highest level of compliance.

To manage industry trends and consumer demands, we continue to implement policies and programs into our supply chain to help ensure that our human rights, environmental/sustainability and Customs Trade Partnership Against Terrorism (CTPAT) commitments are met. In the past several years, we have taken steps to consolidate our vendor and facility base so that we partner more closely with like-minded vendors and facilities regarding the commitment to human rights, fair and safe working conditions, use best practices to reduce our environmental impact, and incorporate CTPAT security requirements. Vendor and facility compliance with our Terms of Engagement, Global Human Rights Policy and Environmental Policy are critical factors in determining whether or not the production of our proprietary goods may be placed at a facility. We review production capacities and working conditions prior to placing production in order to support our commitment to human rights and ESG.
