Maintaining our exemplary reputation means working with suppliers who meet our strict ethical, environmental safety and quality standards and that applies to product manufacture and supply and also labour practices. 

Our commitment to social compliance is further exemplified by our  Supplier Code of Conduct that requires our suppliers to support and comply with 

  • the principles of the United Nations Global Compact (“UNGC”),
  • the UN Universal Declaration of Human Rights and
  • the 1998 International Labour Organization Declaration on Fundamental Principles and Rights at Work

and is further supported by our active membership and participation with SEDEX (Supplier Ethical Data Exchange) and our comprehensive supplier governance framework. 

Our suppliers must continue to meet our thorough accreditation standards, otherwise we won’t work with them. 

We’re serious about product safety, quality assurance and social compliance because we know your brand’s reputation is at stake. That’s why Blue Star PROMOTE is accredited for quality management ISO9001 (as are all Blue Star divisions) and SMETA 4 Pillar.

Through the blending of our best practices and together with our accredited and socially responsible supply base we are able to readily adapt and accelerate our ability to achieve the optimal levels of cost efficiency, product/service effectiveness and product safety in a sustainable, inclusive and socially ethical manner.

There are no compromises when it comes to upholding our values or ensuring your brand’s integrity. That’s a Blue Star PROMOTE promise.
