The PAS Group places a high level of importance on social and ethical compliance and we go to great effort to ensure all our products are ethically sourced and manufactured.
We conduct regular factory audits ensuring all suppliers are compliant with minimum standards (including minimum wages, ethical sourcing and factory working conditions). If we find any evidence of unethical or non-compliance to minimum standards we take action by ceasing to place future orders with that company until they prove their standards are at required levels. If they fail to prove this, then we cease supply.
