We take great pride in our company and the resources and natural materials used in our Original Pine Boots. We work hard to ensure that the materials used in our products are sourced responsibly, ethically, and with respect to our environment, human-rights, and animal welfare.
To ensure that our products are made of the highest quality, we manufacture all over the world.
We are committed to ensuring that there is no modern slavery or human trafficking in our supply
chains or in any part of our business and take a zero-tolerance approach. We fight not only
against it by advocating through our company and through our donations, but also through our
manufacturing process. We have a program in place to ensure that all of our suppliers are audited by an independent auditor with a view to not just meeting, but consistently exceeding,
our ethical standards as well as meeting all other criteria required by local law.
Our audits are conducted by an internationally recognized 3rd party auditing company using the
(SMETA) and (BSCI) format. We strive to ensure every factory is assessed annually.
The audit scope covers the following key areas:
– Prison / Forced Labour
– Freedom of Association
– Child Labour
– Health & Safety
– Wages and benefits
– Working Hours
– Regular Employment
– Disciplinary practices
– Manufacturing Environment.
By reviewing these key areas, our goal is to ensure that no forced labor or child labor is used by any of the manufacturers we work with. We will continue to assess and reassess within our manufacturing supply chain to ensure we are only working with companies that meet or exceed our ethical and social standards.
