Praise
A+ grade in the Baptist World Aid Australia's 'Ethical Fashion Report 2019', which grades companies, from A to F, on the strength of their systems to mitigate against the risks of forced labour, child labour and worker exploitation in their supply chains, as well as protect the environment from the harmful impacts of the fashion industry. Assessment criteria fall into five main categories: policies, transparency and traceability, auditing and supplier relationships, worker empowerment and environmental management.
All of the products this company sells are Fairtrade certified
This social enterprise is Social Traders certified. Social Traders certification assures stakeholders that a social enterprise has a social, cultural or environmental purpose as its primary objective, that a substantial portion of its revenue is derived from commercial trade, and that the majority of the organisation's efforts and resources are invested into the social purpose.
Certified B Corporations use the power of business to solve social and environmental problems. B Corps meet comprehensive and transparent social and environmental performance standards; meet higher legal accountability standards; and build business constituency for good business.
In 2016 this company received the Australian Human Rights Commission Business Award. "Etiko is a small business that has focussed on supply chain ethics by developing an accredited and scalable ethical supply chain model. It has received an A+ rating for ethical production in fashion brands. Etiko is the first non-food brand to receive fairtrade certification in the Pacific region. Etiko’s success in promoting supply chain ethics to the broader community displays great leadership and resource commitment from a small business. It also demonstrates how doing business ethically in Australia can have significant positive human rights impacts at home and abroad."
In 2020 Baptist World Aid Australia released The COVID Fashion Report, a special edition of their Ethical Fashion Report. The report is framed around six COVID Fashion Commitments that ask companies to demonstrate the steps and measures they are taking to protect and support the most vulnerable workers in their supply chains. This company showed evidence of actions that cover ALL areas of the COVID Fashion Commitments.
