We do not own any manufacturing facilities, but we take steps to ensure the factories we work with are managed to the highest possible ethical and social standards.
Betty Basics seeks to work with manufacturers that have accreditation that proves they are BSCI compliant. The Business Social Compliance Initiative (BSCI) is a leading supply chain management system that supports companies in driving compliance and improvements within their supply chains. BSCI provides companies with auditing methodology and reporting tools to help audit, train and influence activities to improve labor conditions and offer safe and positive working environments for factory staff.
As a brand, we want to align with manufacturers who hold the same strong beliefs and are transparent regarding their ethical, social and ecological business standards. These standards fit into 8 key categories:
Protection of Workers and Zero Child Labour
Reasonable Working Hours
Clean and Safe Working Environments
Positive Health and Wellbeing
Staff Training and Development
Reduced Inequalities and Gender Equality
Adequate Social Space and Activities
Betty Basics is taking steps towards working solely with factories that score well in the above categories in external BSCI audits.
We are working towards a future where we can be certain that every article of clothing with a Betty Basics label is manufactured in a fair and safe factory by a well-paid, well-trained and happy worker.
