Tierra is following the membership requirements of the Mulitstakeholderorganizsation the Fair Labor Association (FLA) since they belong to the Fenix Outdoor Group. With that and the Group guidelines for social compliance and the Fenix Way, we actively engage with our supplier by doing assessments or audits. We have our own audit staff in eastern Asia and get complemented by a third party audit company ELEVATE.
The audit results are being measured in grades:
- A = Excellent
- B = Good
- C = Ok but needs to be improved
- D = not acceptable / critial
Fenix Outdoor is also a signatory to the SLCP (Social Labor Convergence Project) and therefor accepts verified self-assessments and also shares audit reports with other brands using a different social compliance standard like the Fair Wear Foundation among the industry to reduce the audit fatigue.
