By joining the Business Social Compliance Initiative (BSCI) in February 2016, Just Brands has set the bar for the ethical standards and human rights within the supply chain. The BSCI Code of Conduct explains the requirements as regards working conditions for our partners’ employees. It is based on international labour standards, such as the ILO Core Conventions, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights of United Nations (UN) and the guidelines for multinational enterprises of the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD). The BSCI Code of Conduct is based on 11 different principles. Just Brands and our business partners commit to implement these within our supply chain via a step-by-step development approach.
This content is updated in January 2018. Just Brands sees the growth and extension of above results as an ongoing process. Each year, there will be an updated result published on the company website.
The BSCI Code of Conduct, which Just Brands has accepted as a standard, is built upon 11 core labour rights: Fair wages, a healthy and safe working environment, decent working hours, ethical business behaviour, the protection of young workers, documented contracts, no bonded labour, no discrimination, no child labour and protection of the environment.

Within Just Brands corporate responsibility means having a strong focus on monitoring the working conditions in the supply chain. To reduce the risk on child labour, Just Brands joined a research against child labour in the fashion industry in Turkey. Together with the Turkish foundation ‘Development Workshop’, the Fair Labor Association (FLA) and other fashion brands this project has been originated in 2013. The project focusses on creating transparency in the full supply chain and to remove and prevent child labour in different processes.
