Training and Support on Ethical Trading Requirements
Holt Renfrew’s Ethical Trading Requirements (ETR) set out our core principles that our vendors must comply with as part of our standard terms and conditions for trading with Holt Renfrew. Holt Renfrew provides training and support on ethical trading to vendors and employees.
Starting in June 2016, Holt Renfrew vendors must participate in a webinar which reviews vendor requirements, including our policies against child and forced labour. These webinars will be held twice a month and vendors will be required to participate annually.
On November 12th & 13th, 2015, representatives from the Centre for Sustainable Fashion, a global leader in design-lead retail solutions which explore new perspectives and processes that balance ecology, society and culture, provided an intensive two-day workshop for the Holt Renfrew buying teams to introduce, discuss, share and embed the importance of sustainability and human rights in the retail fashion industry. This workshop is planned as an annual event.
