The area of social responsibility is incredibly complex and no brand alone can address problematic issues such as lack of law, or enforcement, or cultural behaviors and practices around the world.
prAna’s social compliance program goes beyond just compliance within our factories. We know we play a part in this as well, which is why we have a responsible purchasing policy that helps us mitigate and avoid compliance problems for our factory partners.
prAna joined the FLA in 2010 to ensure our brand’s social compliance program is at the forefront of best practices in human and labor rights in our supply chain. This allowed us to tap into the people and resources that have been working on issues of labor and human rights directly. It also gave us a new group of like-minded partners to collaborate with, so that moving forward we could be more successful in our efforts to improve the working conditions in the factories where our products are made.
In February 2015, the FLA accredited prAna’s social compliance program after a careful review and verification to ensure our efforts are aligned with our commitment to workers’ rights.
This accreditation means our program meets the FLAs principles of fair labor & responsible sourcing
and has been fully vetted by a third party.
