Keeping Our Factories Fair
Hotmilk Collective garments are designed in New Zealand and manufactured in established factories with excellent reputations and internationally recognised certifications for ethical and environmental standards. Their policies are regularly externally audited for compliance to ensure these standards are upheld.
Environmental: Our factories are regularly audited for Environmental Compliance for resource consumption, disposal and emissions. This includes international policies for managing water, air, noise, energy and waste with a focus on sustainable production.
Ethical: We demand protection of workers rights including, but not limited to international policies from human rights to fair hours, compensation, safe working and living conditions, freedom from discrimination, forced labour, child labour and more.
Business Social Compliance (BSCI): This initiative aims at continuously improving the working conditions in factories and is based on the labour standards of the International Labour Organization (ILO), national regulations and other international regulations like the UN Charta for Human Rights. We ensure all the factories we use comply and continually aim to improve. For more information on this, visit BSCI
