ETHICAL TRADING POLICY

Objective
ETI Ltd seeks to ensure that its products are manufactured to the highest technical and ethical standards by providing high standards of working conditions in its own factories and by developing long term trading relationships with suppliers.

 

ETI Ltd encourages suppliers to follow its Code of Conduct and this is based on the code developed by the Ethical Trading Initiative (ETI), which is an alliance of companies, non-governmental organisations and trade union members who are working towards worldwide ethical standards of trading. Whilst ETI Ltd is not a full member of the Ethical Trading Initiative alliance, ETI Ltd fully endorses their principles.

 

ETI Ltd is currently developing its ethical trading standards and practices by proposing to review, monitor and advise suppliers within existing business practices in all Purchasing, Technical and Sourcing departments.

The company is committed to bringing about positive improvements to international standards in conditions for workers in all organisations across the globe.

 

 CODE OF CONDUCT
ETI Ltd will endeavour at all times to act in a responsible way towards the world and its people, and encourages our suppliers and our customers to do the same, by,

  • respecting the economic, social, cultural, political and civil rights of those involved in our operations
  • complying with all local human rights legislation
  • implementing programmes across our whole operation, together with our supply chain partners

 

Personnel rights and dignity at work

  • precluding the use of forced labour
  • providing comprehensive company policies and mutually agreed terms and conditions
  • ensuring that young persons are employed only under circumstances which protect them from physical risk and do not disrupt their education
  • not tolerating any form of harassment in the workplace (see separate policies)
  • providing freedom of association and collective bargaining via employee communications policy
  • considering the needs of disabled people

 

Health and safety in the workplace

  • creating a healthy and safe work environment for each employee, including company policies on Health & Safety, company & employee responsibilities, accident reporting, safety training, risk assessments, etc.

 

Fair remuneration

  • ensuring that working hours and remuneration are reasonable and comply with local legislation and when appropriate are comparable to those offered by similar local companies

 

Diversity and respect for differences

  • managing diversity to promote and capitalise on cultural and individual differences to create competitive advantage through new perspectives and local market sensitivity

 

Opportunity for development

  • recognising the value that employees create and reward them with opportunities for personal and career development
  • providing employees with equal opportunities regardless of their gender, age, marital status, sexual orientation, disability, race, religion or national origin.

 

ETI Ltd encourages its employees to aid the company to comply with the above with a specific 'Whistle blowing' policy to enable poor practice to be brought to the attention of senior management and the company would be pleased to receive any information on this subject from
either its customers or suppliers.
