Social Compliance and Responsibility is at the forefront of ASL’s value chain. ASL sets the standards in responsible  sourcing.  ASL are a member of SEDEX. Our customers, who are members of SEDEX, can track our performance in this area.

 

ASL are focused on Corporate Social Responsibility in the areas in which can have the greatest impact and generate the most value,  i.e. through the suppliers ASL are sourcing, through the materials being used and thorough the supply chain that has been developed.

 

ASL’s commitment to being a responsible and long-term business partner is strongly demonstrated by the fact that ASL have set  up an independent, extensive compliance team of experienced audit specialists to conduct factory audits at all production facilities thereby ensuring that our customers are not going to be exposed to critical failures such as child labour, prison labour and labour abuses.  ASL adopt a continuous improvement philosophy through the development of an action-based, time-bound Corrective Action Plan for each audited facility which ASL then diligently enforce thereby playing an integral part in improving the overall standard of production facilities around the world.

 

ASL are continually working with NGOs on CSR programs and / or initiatives.  Through such collaborations, ASL can be more effective in addressing the supply chain risks, effect change and develop business opportunities in areas that would contribute to better working and environmental conditions and a healthier community.

 

ASL are optimistic that our sustainability strategy will help to drive business growth, build deeper customer connections and create positive social and environmental change.
