Corporate Social Responsibility
At Lyle and Scott we have almost 140 years of history in clothing manufacturing. With a long term future focus on responsible trading, we are committed to our supplier base, ensuring we have full understanding of their working ethics and that these sit in line with local and international trading laws.
With factories in the Far East, EU & the UK we work hard to maintain strong, mutually beneficial partnerships. We have annual factory audits to ensure the compliance of our factory base, discussing any concerns or celebrating any positives we encounter. Working so closely and visiting our suppliers regularly ensures we are able to develop and improve their working methods where applicable.
It’s important to us that all the factories we work with are ethically compliant. This means full compliance with our strict child labour policy, with regular checks an integral part of the auditing process. Our factories all have fair working practises, with local working hours and over time within the legal requirements of the region or country. All health and safety practises are strictly adhered to.
We understand the importance of quality in every garment we manufacture, so everything from our Lyle & Scott classic polo’s to our lambswool jumpers are tested to the highest standards and within R.E.A.C.H guidelines. As our business grows our compliance and ethical care programme is a continued effort. Ultimately we aim to work to the highest standards; delivering the best possible product in line with legal and ethical requirements.
