DDD Limited (‘DDD’) manufactures and distributes health and beauty products, and is headquartered and manufactures only in the UK. DDD is committed to conducting an ethical and environmentally responsible business.
DDD and its suppliers work to an ethical and environmental code of conduct which sets out DDD’s requirements in relation to labour practices, health and safety, responsible sourcing and environmental standards. DDD is clear that forced labour in any form is unacceptable.
DDD has a Quality Assurance department that works with suppliers through a combination of assessments, using ethical database Sedex, supplier training and audits. DDD uses information from Sedex risk assessments to help prioritise suppliers for audit. In addition to audits, DDD operates a third party hotline for workers to make contact and raise any issues relating to working conditions.
Audits are conducted by DDD’s auditors. In order to fully understand the working environment in a supplier facility, the auditors interview a cross-section of the workforce without management present.
This statement has been approved by the DDD Board of Directors who will review and update it annually.
