Sustainable procurement

Arc'teryx jacket manufacturing

We strive to improve performance in sustainable procurement. Amer Sports’ procurement is guided through our Ethical Policy, Social and Environmental Compliance Benchmarks, and Slavery and Human Trafficking Statement.

Amer Sports Ethical Policy

The Amer Sports Ethical Policy sets out the social and environmental fundamentals for our supply chain. It’s an integral part of our responsible operations strategy. The Policy is based on our commitment to upholding human rights, as well as internationally recognized social and ethical standards. These include, for example, International Labor Organization (ILO) Conventions and the United Nations’ Universal Declaration on Human Rights.

Furthermore, as Amer Sports is a participating company in the Fair Labor Association (FLA), the Policy is aligned with FLA’s Code of Conduct and Compliance Benchmarks which strive for decent and humane working conditions.

The Ethical Policy applies to all operators in the Amer Sports supply chain, including our suppliers and our own manufacturing and distribution facilities. We expect and support our own facilities and suppliers to operate according to the principles set out in the Ethical Policy.

The Amer Sports Group Executive Committee is responsible for upholding the Ethical Policy and reviewing it on a regular basis.

Social and Environmental Compliance Benchmarks

The Amer Sports Ethical Policy standards are explained further in our Social and Environmental Compliance Benchmarks. These benchmarks provide detailed guidance on how Amer Sports and its suppliers are expected to behave as employers. This means compliance with all applicable national and international laws, standards, rules, regulations, and industry practices that cover employers’ activities, such as manufacturing, sales, and distribution. This program equally applies to our own manufacturing and distribution facilities.

The Benchmarks include 15 cross-references that guide employers’ responsibilities relating to areas such as human rights, health and safety, environmental standards, employment relationships management, and good governance.

Slavery and Human Trafficking Statement

We express a zero-tolerance approach to any form of modern slavery. We are committed to acting ethically, with integrity and transparency in all our business dealings. As such, we have implemented effective systems and controls to safeguard against any form of modern slavery taking place within our business or supply chains.

We regularly monitor public sources and internal reporting channels for any reports related to modern slavery practices in our business and within our supply chain. Social and labor audit scores covering a number of critical issues (related to, for example, forced labor) are an essential part of the suppliers’ scorecard, and we review it monthly.
