Responsible Production Principles

At Heritage Apparels, responsible production is at the core of our ethos. We pride ourselves in creating products of excellent quality whilst operating to high ethical standards. Our approach to business practice centres around 3 Ps – Profit, People and Planet. We recognise that to be impactful, we must operate a profitable and transformative enterprise. Our people are our greatest assets so we treat them with dignity and respect, creating a work culture where they can grow, feel included and valued. We recognise that our planet’s resources are exhaustible, so we take deliberate measures to reduce waste, water consumption and our carbon footprint.

We are committed to conducting business in accordance with the highest ethical standards and in compliance with all applicable laws and regulations. Our Responsible Production Principles include principles of international law such as the International Labour Organisation’s Declaration on Fundamental Principles and Rights at Work: no child labour; no forced labour; no discrimination; and the right to freedom of association.

Code of Conduct:

  • A. Child Labour: We do not recruit or employ children under the age of 18
  • B. Forced Labour: We do not practice forced, bonded or involuntary labour
  • C. Discrimination: Our recruitment process follows equal opportunity principles
  • D. Working Hours: Our recruitment process follows equal opportunity principles
  • E. Wages and Employee Benefits: Our workers’ wages exceed the national legal requirements
  • F. Documentation: Our workers are provided with written information about their employment conditions and wages before their employment commences. They are also provided with an employment contract and handbook detailing their rights and obligations and receive wage slips for each period they are paid
  • G. Abuse: We do not tolerate worker abuse whether physical, sexual or verbal
  • H. Working Environment: : We provide a safe, clean and hygienic environment for our workers. Our workers receive regular health and safety training. We have a well-equipped first aid box on the factory floor and a health and safety representative has been appointed.

Human Rights:

We acknowledge our corporate responsibility to respect human rights in the course of our business. Respect for human rights is a pillar of the United Nations Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights (the UN Guiding Principles) which sets a common global standard for preventing and addressing the adverse human rights impacts of business activity. We are committed to respecting the human rights embodied in the UN Guiding Principles, i.e. those set out in the UN International Bill of Rights and the ILO Declaration of Fundamental Principles and Rights at Work.

Modern Slavery and Human Trafficking:

We do not engage in any activity, practice or conduct that would constitute Modern Slavery. We comply with all applicable laws, statutes and regulations related to Modern Slavery from time to time in force, including but not limited to the Modern Slavery Act and the Trafficking in Persons (Prohibition), Enforcement and Administration Act.

Environmental Policy:

The fashion industry is the second highest polluting industry in the world, the second highest industrial user of water worldwide and generates 20 per. cent of global waste.
