Managing labour standards and human rights in the supply chain.
Haikure has continued to source 100% of its collection from a single SA8000 certified factory in Italy. The brand has full visibility of its direct supply base and the ability to closely monitor labour risks. The SA8000 is based on the ILO Core Conventions, UN Declaration on Human Rights and Guiding Principles for Business and Human Rights. As a certified factory, Haikure’s suppliers are required to comply with these international principles. These foundational activities are reflected in a level 1 score of 81%.
Haikure receives an annual SA8000 certification report for its direct supplier confirming that it meets these standards and describes any non-compliance against the standard. This process enables Haikure to monitor and manage labour standards for its direct supplier. However, Haikure is yet to show that labour standards and human rights are fostered for its indirect suppliers. This results in a score of 60% for level 2.
As Haikure’s supplier is an SA8000 certified factory, it has a process in place to ensure freedom of association and implements human rights grievance mechanisms. Haikure is still to map and mitigate human rights risk within indirect suppliers or assign human rights and labour standards targets to its own staff. This results in a score of 40%
