För oss har det alltid varit viktigt med ett nära samarbete med våra globala leverantörer. För att bli ännu tydligare har vi skapat Dinbox Code of Conduct (uppförandekod) – vår policy som anger lägsta accepterade standard vad gäller arbetsförhållanden hos våra leverantörer. Uppförandekoden reglerar all produktion och även leverantörers underleverantörer.
Vi har valt att arbeta fram vår Code of Conduct i samarbete med Genombrott. Genombrott erbjuder konsult-, opinions- och utbildningsstöd inom socialt ansvar och hållbar globalisering.
Dinbox undertakes to only trade in materials that have been produced under dignified working conditions.
To that end Dinbox will implement the labour standards (section 3 below) in the factories it is sourcing from and will put sufficient and effective efforts into ensuring that this code is followed by its contractors, subcontractors, suppliers, and licensees.
Where clarifications of ILO Conventions are required, Dinbox follows ILO Recommendations and existing jurisprudence.
There shall be no forms of slavery or practices similar to slavery, such as the sale and trafficking of children, debt bondage and serfdom and forced or compulsory labour. Children (in the age of 15-18) shall not perform work which, by its nature or the circumstances in which it is carried out, is likely to harm their health, safety or morals. (ILO Convention 182)
Workers representatives shall not be the subject of discrimination and shall have access to all workplaces necessary to carry out their representation functions. (ILO Convention 135 and Recommendation 143)
Deductions from wages for disciplinary measures shall not be permitted nor shall any deductions from wages not provided for by national law be permitted. Deductions shall never constitute an amount that will lead the employee to receive less than the minimum wage. Employees shall be adequately and clearly informed about the specifications of their wages including wage rates and pay period.
Overtime shall be voluntary, shall not exceed 12 hours per week, shall not be demanded on a regular basis and shall always be compensated at a premium rate. (ILO Convention 1)
Effective regulations shall be implemented to prevent accidents and minimise health risks as much as possible (following ILO Convention 155). Physical abuse, threats of physical abuse, unusual punishments or discipline, sexual and other harassment, and intimidation by the employer is strictly prohibited.
Employees should be informed that they are producing under minimum conditions as outlined in Dinbox’s Code of Labour Practices. These conditions should be explained in a way that the Code is made understandable. Dinbox reserves the right to let an independent third party inform employees about the Code of Labour Practices.
Dinbox shall stipulate that contractors, subcontractors, suppliers, or licensees who demonstrably fail to comply with one or more of the standards laid down in the Code of Labour Practices, take appropriate measures to ensure that the situation is improved. If necessary, the offending party shall be sanctioned by cancellation of its contract, thus prohibiting it from producing or organising the production of products for Dinbox.
Dinbox reserves the right to use independent verification of its and its suppliers compliance with this Code of Labour Practices. Dinbox reserves the right to make unannounced visits to all factories producing its goods, and let an independent third party of Dinbox’s choice undertake audits or inspections, at any time. All suppliers are obliged to always keep Dinbox informed about the locations in which each order is being produced.
