CORPORATE SOCIAL RESPONSIBILTY
Ethical CharterJOSEPH is committed to responsible practice across all areas of its business. Ethical and sustainable sourcing is a vital part of this commitment.
The Ethical Charter sets out the minimum standards that we require our suppliers and their affiliates to uphold, in order to trade with JOSEPH.
JOSEPH will enforce these standards through regular inspections of supplier facilities by our own employees and third-party auditors. If a supplier fails to comply to the minimum standards agreed to in this Ethical Charter, JOSEPH reserves the right to end any business relation or contract, if no agreement or plan of action has been found to rectify the situation.
Responsible Animal SourcingJOSEPH is deeply committed to principles and practices that ensure the highest standard of animal welfare is adopted in our supply chain. These principles form part of our Ethical Charter.
