Ensuring Workers' Rights: ETI-Based Social Audits
Social Audits are based on the Ethical Trading Initiative (ETI) Base Code. ETI is a leading organisation that has developed a code of conduct outlining ethical standards for labour practices. This code of conduct includes the rights of workers to fair pay, safe and healthy working conditions, freedom of association, and protection against discrimination. This contributes to protecting workers’ rights and safeguarding the reputation and credibility of the companies involved.
Leveraging our expertise and comprehensive approach, FLOCERT empowers businesses by conducting Social Audits that identify areas for improvement, drive the adoption of ethical practices, and ultimately foster sustainable supply chains.
The benefits of Social Audits:
- For workers, these audits help to ensure fair treatment and that their rights are respected.
- For companies, Social Audits based on the ETI Base Code can help to mitigate the risk of negative publicity, protect their reputation, and improve their overall supply chain performance.
- In addition, our high-quality Social Audit reports serve as a Social Indicator for the Fairtrade Standard for Fibre crops (including cotton) and Fairtrade Textile Standard. A Social Indicator is a mandatory prerequisite for certification: it proves your efforts to comply with the set of International Labour Organization (ILO) Conventions, which reflect the global understanding of fair and good working conditions.
To avoid audit fatigue and save costs, we can schedule your Social Audit jointly with your Fairtrade Audit. Our experienced auditor will support you through the process. After the audit, you will receive two separate reports.
