2016 marked a further milestone in promoting responsible behaviour among the Group’s partners, with the official approval and distribution of the Supplier Code of Conduct and relevant guidelines, devised to steer and help Moncler’s suppliers achieve operational compliance.
The Supplier Code of Conduct is consistent with the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the main principles of the International Labour Organization (ILO), and sets forth the mandatory requirements to become or continue to be a supplier of the Moncler Group. The Code addresses Moncler’s expectations regarding responsible purchasing, and consists of six sections describing the binding provisions related to: Labour and Human Rights, Occupational Health and Safety, Environment, Animal Health and Welfare, Safety and Quality of Products and Services, and Corporate Ethics.
Targeted training on the Supplier Code of Conduct is expected to be delivered to Moncler’s partners within the first months of 2017, both during a convention organised at the corporate offices in Trebaseleghe (Padua, Italy), and via the new supplier portal, which includes a dedicated online training section.
Moncler is also continuing to update its own vendor rating system by incorporating new indicators – including environmental ones. Each indicator will be weighted, contributing to the assessment of each supplier based on scores achieved in the different areas. The macro-areas of the vendor rating system are:
• Risk (country risk, financial risk, number of subcontractors, etc.)
• Service (technological capacity, innovation, timely delivery, etc.)
• Quality (defect rate in manufacturing, quality grievances reported to client service, etc.)
• Costs (price competitiveness, logistics costs, etc.)
• Ethics (working conditions, environmental practices, animal welfare, etc.).
