Our Code of Conduct guides our activities wherever we operate and clearly states our position on a number of labour practice issues. First developed in 2005 and last updated in 2016, our Code of Conduct aligns with internationally recognized standards, such as the International Labour Organization (ILO) conventions, and encompasses principles set forth by the Fair Labor Association (FLA) and the Worldwide Responsible Accredited Production (WRAP). For more information on Gildan’s Code of Conduct, please refer to our Social & Sustainable Compliance Guidebook.
The Code of Ethics sets forth our Company’s standards and expectations of conduct by all employees with regards to ethics and integrity and serves as a framework to guide employees in making decisions that are consistent with our core values. The Code of Ethics applies at all times, without exception, to all employees worldwide, as well as to the members of our Board of Directors.
The Restricted Substances Code of Practice (RSCP) sets stringent standards and guidelines that our suppliers of raw materials and third-party manufacturing contractors are required to fulfill to ensure that no hazardous substances are used in the manufacturing of Gildan products at any point in the supply chain. The RCSP is continuously updated and aligned with industry leading standards; it covers all regulated and targeted substances around the textile industry and their potential impact on human health and the environment.
