IMPROVING SUPPLIER CONDITIONS
We are committed to long-term relationships with our suppliers. It is our practice to assist noncompliant suppliers to become compliant with the J.Crew Code of Vendor Conduct. We provide our suppliers with the tools they need to improve working conditions, including training and in-factory consultations.
We terminate a business relationship only as a last resort if a critical issue of noncompliance is identified or when a supplier is unwilling to meet our requirements despite our efforts to help them become compliant.
We regularly conduct Responsible Sourcing training seminars for our suppliers. These seminars focus on the J.Crew Code of Vendor Conduct, program requirements and other relevant topics, including working hours and overtime, health and safety and management systems. Since 2005, we have conducted six seminars and have provided training to over 400 supplier representatives. Our most recent seminar was held in Shenzhen, China, in May 2012. We also conduct regular training for J.Crew associates who work with suppliers, covering program requirements and how to best support the company’s responsible sourcing efforts.
