EGL Homecare recognises the responsibility it shares with its suppliers to buy, manufacture and sell products in an ethical manner. EGL want customers to be confident that the people who make their products are treated fairly with respect for basic human rights and that they are not exposed to unsafe working conditions. When ethical standards are adhered to, not only do individual workers benefit but productivity and quality also improve.
To ensure ethical objectives are met, EGL has chosen to adopt a Code of Conduct for Ethical Trade based on the Ethical Trading Initiative (ETI) Base Code, which is widely acknowledged as a model code of labour practice, and is derived from the Conventions of the International Labour Organisation (ILO).
EGL is fully committed to meeting the minimum standards of its Code of Conduct and actively seeks to develop long-term trading partnerships with suppliers who are also committed to trading ethically.
