When a company joins ETI, they adopt our Base Code of labour practice, and commit to implementing this within their supply chain. We acknowledge that this is a challenging ask, and that members will encounter complex problems and issues along the way. We look for continuous improvement over time in members’ ethical trade performance, monitoring this performance through our standard annual reporting and strategic reporting mechanisms. We do grade members’ efforts against our Principles of Implementation and this grade reflects their level of progress. However, at present these ratings are not publicly available as they are intended to provide constructive feedback to members, helping them improve and increase their work on ethical trade.
