Our Prin­ci­ples are built on our val­ues. Our val­ues relate pri­mar­i­ly to the worst forms of human exploita­tion – child labour, forced labour, slav­ery, and human traf­fick­ing; it also includes com­pre­hen­sive pro­tec­tions of work­ers’ rights accord­ing to inter­na­tion­al standards.

Appli­ca­tion of the Prin­ci­ples enables us to assess whether prod­ucts are pro­duced and ser­vices ren­dered under legal, safe, fair and humane work­ing con­di­tions through­out the sup­ply chain.
