Personal Insights

What matters most to us:

Being the role model for fairly manufactured goods in sub-Saharan Africa.

What we learned: Check it out

When we started, our employees in Ethiopia neither understood nor recognized that what we were doing was creating impact. But taking the Assessment was a validating exercise for our employees - it showed the team that we were already doing some amazing stuff with our company. It also showed us where we needed to improve to become the role model we want to be.

What we did as a result:

Since then, we've taken the steps to certify our factory as the first Fair Trade footwear factory in Africa. We also found that the biggest gaps in our results were in the Environment section. We are continuing to educate our leather and rubber suppliers on how they can reduce their footprints. We have also made a commitment to donate 1% of our profits to environmental causes through 1% for the Planet.

Features/Improvements we are looking forward to:

The ability to assess our workers-related practices in Ethiopia and Canada separately.
