Ethical Trading Initiative
Sincere supports the ETI base Code of Conduct and the aims and objectives of the international standard on ethical trading, SA 8000. As a fundamental matter of principle we will not trade with companies that are not mindful of their ethical, social, environmental, financial and humanitarian responsibilities. We adopt a precautionary approach wherever we cannot adequately confirm such standards are being applied by our suppliers.


If you wish to view the full Base code, please visit the following website; www.ethicaltrade.org



ETI

Ethics and Environment - Ethical Trading Criteria:

At Sincere we believe strongly in ethical principles and good practices.  We are therefore proud that we trade according to the following Ethical Trading Criteria:

  • All employment is freely chosen
  • All staff are entitled to belong to trade unions and collective bargaining is respected, to the extent permitted by local law.
  • Working conditions are safe and hygienic.
  • Child labour is not used.
  • Wages are fair and comparable to other retailers and wherever possible exceed the minimum wage.
  • Deductions from wages as a disciplinary measure shall not be permitted.
  • Working hours are not excessive.
  • No discrimination is practiced.
  • Regular employment is provided for those who are employed on a permanent contract.
  • No harsh, cruel or degrading treatment or practices are allowed.
  • No bribery, corruption, blackmailing or bullying is permitted.
  • Good environmental stewardship is practiced.
  • Suppliers and buyers are both free to sell and buy from any number of other businesses or outlets.  No restrictions, as a way of guaranteeing business, are allowed.

We also ask all our suppliers to affirm to us that their businesses are also built on these ethical criteria.
