Social compliance monitoring

Salomon, through the Amer Sports Corporation, is focused on protecting human rights and improving the labour conditions and transparency within its supply chain. To ensure that our business partners and manufacturing facilities are in compliance with our standards, a Social Compliance Monitoring Program has been implemented, under which existing and new suppliers of Amer Sports brands (as well as our own manufacturing facilities) are audited.
Within the Amer Sports Social Compliance approach is a Company Code of Conduct, Ethical Policy (in 25 languages) for suppliers, and the Social Compliance Policy. The Ethical Policy is signed by suppliers.
Amer Sports’ extensive third party audit program, Amer Sports’ sourcing Office in Hong Kong, ensures that suppliers follow company standards for ethical operations, and the Corporate Social Responsibility team is trained on a social and environmental management system program (SA8000).

Key data : Social compliance audit results

79%
Of our factories are above 75% of audit score (gold)

The company reviews and analyzes the audit findings to identify capacity-building training opportunities. Suppliers that receive “full compliance” status are presented with a trophy. Amer Sports also cooperates with various NGOs such as Better Work for the Better Factories Cambodia program and regularly attends the ILO’s Better Work workshops. In cases of an Ethical Policy violation, a poster in the factory provides an email address ([email protected]) and feedback is handled by Amer Sports Asian Sourcing Office in complete confidentiality.

Identified areas of improvment

  • Pursue the optimization of training expenses to better meet the needs of the organization and maintain the employability.
  • Publish our list of suppliers and social audits score across categories
  • Encourage all suppliers to use the Higg Index to measure sustainability impacts and drive positive change in the supply chain.

Higg index facility module

Manufacturers use the Higg Facility Modules to measure the social and environmental performance of their individual facilities at least once each year and the Environmental Module assessments are now being verified by SAC-approved, on-site assessors. Facility managers can compare their performance against their peers. The module’s aspirational-level questions give manufacturers clear guidance on hotspots for improvement and outline current best practice. The Facility Environment Module measures environmental management systems, energy use and greenhouse gas emissions, water use, wastewater/effluent, air emissions (if applicable), waste management and chemical use and management.
