Although Happy Socks does not own any factories, we take responsibility to ensure the factories we work with are secure, safe and offer fair working conditions. That is why we only work with suppliers who agree to sign our Code of Conduct—a clarification of our requirements for environmental and social equity.
Since 2021, all our factories are evaluated through Amfori* BSCI and BEPI programmes, which gives us the opportunity to monitor and evaluate the supply chain performance from both social and environmental aspects. Amfori also supports us with third-party auditing.
In 2022 we joined Worldfavor’s platform, to help us to increase our transparency throughout our supply chain. Through Worldfavor we map out environmental aspects, percentage of renewable energy, how they work with water and chemicals, and social aspects like workers’ conditions regarding living wages and safety aspects.
In 2023 we partnered up with Carbonfact that provides us with data on the footprint of all our products through Life Cycle Assessments; this goes for all of our socks, from cradle to grave.
*Amfori is an initiative aimed at improving working conditions in the global supply chain.
