“We believe in good business – the kind that helps our community, our environment, and inspires others.”
We believe that people power our product, our purpose, and our planet. That’s why we are focused on UNGC Sustainable Development Goal #10 – Reduced Inequalities. We promote diversity, gender equality, female empowerment, and inclusion for all.
We advocate for our employees, our customers, our community, and beyond. Read more about it
We strive to create a culture of inclusion where employees can freely and equally contribute regardless of gender, gender identity, age, race, disability, or sexual orientation. Our
Code of Ethics which all employees are trained on biannually, codifies these values. We ensure that each one of our employees understands and commits to our Code’s values.
We want to continue elevating our own ethical supply chain program and be a leader in our industry. As with other efforts, we recognize that we are better when we work together. We actively seek opportunities to benchmark against other brands to improve our own program and ensure a healthy and safe working environment for factory workers who produce our product. Our
Ethical Supply Chain Supplier Code of Conduct. is based off International Labor Organization Standards, and we have teams in both China and Vietnam who audit our partners against our Ethical Supply Chain Supplier Code of Conduct on an annual basis.
Where we do not have local expertise, we work with programs like Better Work to advance issues of health and safety in our industry. Our audit questionnaire consists of 230 yes/no questions, which helps to eliminate any personal bias. Audit scores are immediately uploaded to
Fair Factory Clearinghouse,
which allows us to benchmark against other brands. Our Executive team also meets periodically throughout the year to review the performance scorecards of our key partners.
Doing good in the world is an essential part of our culture. Read on to learn about some of the organizations UGG proudly supports.
