We try to make as little impact on the environment as possible by developing high-quality, long lasting products. In our search for performance and durability, a lot of the eco-friendly materials fail to impress and we really don’t believe in making second-rate products. We do, however, always opt for eco-friendly materials whenever possible and luckily, there is an ever increasing range of great new materials to choose from.
Irresponsible business practices, such as compromising working conditions, the exploitation of child labor, reckless use of natural resources and careless disposal of harmful waste, work contra to the principles of sustainable development. By considering the potential harmful impact of any business operation, and by making an effort to regulate aspects that may be harmful, a company can contribute to making things better.
Sweet Protection works only with suppliers that positively represent our declared values, and who also work to improve conditions both internally and externally by putting pressure on their suppliers. As a small company, it is very difficult to achieve full insight into conditions at the sub-supplier level. We are, however, confident that our first-hand partners represent our values to a degree that makes us proud.
Our ethical guidelines and declared goals are listed in a document called ”Code of Conduct”. The code of conduct document is based on internationally recognized ILO (International Labor Organization) and UN (United Nations) conventions and treaties. Our Code of Conduct is published at the Active Brands group page. You find it here.
