Deciding where to place your work often rests on more than price and quality.
You want to be sure that the factory is run ethically, uses materials from a sustainable source and that the final product complies with the relevant safety requirements.
We understand how important it is to you that we engage with reputable and responsible partners and that we have control of these aspects.
It’s part of our service.
Socially responsible manufacturing
We are committed to ensuring that the items we produce are manufactured in factories which operate ethically and responsibly. We foster long term partnerships with our suppliers and require them to work positively and transparently to improve conditions in the workplace.
We require our key suppliers to:
- undertake regular and widely recognised ethical trading audits such as the ICTI Ethical Toy Program, SMETA, BSCI or SA8000
- provide employees with safe and good working conditions, fair treatment and reasonable rates of pay in line with all applicable laws
- Respect worker’s rights in line with all applicable laws
In 2003 Imago was a founding member of PRELIMS (Publishers Resolution of Ethical International Manufacturing Standards), a collaboration of publishers who wanted to promote the continuous improvement of conditions within their supply chains. Now as a member of the Labour & Environment (formerly PRELIMS) element of the Book Chain Project, Imago requires suppliers to follow the BCP’s Code of Conduct for labour and environmental standards.
