The key words for reporting are openness and transparency. In 2015 the CSR strategy was updated (hence, “the 4 corner stones”) and from this year we took the important step to embed CSR reporting in our annual reporting and make it available on the web site. Besides the annual report, web site and electronic newsletters are used as communication platform to our business partners and stakeholders. We are in contact with CSR people from our customers’ organizations on a regular basis to exchange and supply information, plan auditing visits and follow up on current topics.
Spectre is audited twice per year by external auditors according to SA8000 requirements and further audits are carried out on customer initiative following requirements from Fair Wear Foundation (FWF), Fair Labor Association (FLA) and others. We openly share our SA8000 audit reports with customers and systematically follow up on CAP based on audits initiated by our customers.
Compliance and certification with SA8000 and ISO14001 confirms a proper management system but our ambitions go much beyond compliance: We want to stay at the forefront of the global sustainability agenda together with our customers and other key business partners ensuring we take our part of the responsibility.
