Response by Tom Tailor
Thank you for your email and the possibility to respond to the allegations made in the report of the Clean Clothes Campaign “Exploitation made in Europe”, released 24. April 2020.
As an internationally operating lifestyle company, we take the responsibility for our environment very seriously and are aware of our social responsibility towards our employees but also towards our suppliers and partners. Hereby the compliance with human rights is our top priority. For this reason, TOM TAILOR Group voluntarily adheres to the principles of the amfori Business Social Compliance Initiative (amfori BSCI) in the production process, which contains all the essential standards for the protection of labor rights of the International Labour Organisation (ILO), the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights, and the UN Declaration of Human Rights. In the report “ Exploitation Made in Europe” Tom Tailor is mentioned regarding production in Bulgaria. We would like to inform you that Tom Tailor has worked with a single supplier in Bulgaria and this cooperation was already terminated in March 2020. As Tom Tailor has been mentioned with several other brands together in this report, we would furthermore like to refer to the joint statement released by amfori BSCI.
In that letter all further details can be found.
