Work in partnership:
No company exists in isolation. Businesses need to involve and inform the organizations and individuals who have a vested interest in their performance. Opening up regular dialogue with all our stakeholders helps us find out how best to respond to their needs. We have always worked closely with our business stakeholders - including customers, suppliers, and staff - in order to build trusting commercial relationships.
Core Values Authenticity. Inspiration. Commitment. Honesty.
These are some of the core values of the Leather & Sports Metropolis. We measure ourselves by these values, and we measure our business partners in the same way.
Consistent with these values, we expect our partners - contractors, subcontractors, suppliers, and others - to conduct themselves with the utmost fairness, honesty, and responsibility in all aspects of their business.
These Standards of Engagement are tools that assist us in selecting and retaining business partners that follow workplace standards and business practices consistent with our policies and values. As a set of guiding principles, they also help identify potential problems so that we can work with our business partners to address issues of concern as they arise.
Making our supply chain more effective· Ensuring to provide a long-term future for our products.
The values of the company - authenticity, inspiration, honesty and commitment form the basis of our Standards of Engagement, the Group's code of conduct that aims to ensure that our suppliers´ factories are safe, fair places in which to work. Our ultimate goal for our suppliers´ conduct is that they have systems of 'self-governance', meaning that they will eventually develop their own systems in line with local and international social and environmental standards rather than being externally regulated by customers.
