At Ollie & Nic we are acutely aware of the need to preserve our planet and to care for everything that lives on it.
Environment and Sustainability
At our Head Office and in our warehouse we work hard every day to care for and protect the environment in which we work.
We are constantly striving to reduce the amount of energy we use in our warehouse and Head Office. We also closely monitor the air miles used in shipping our products and use alternative greener methods of transport whenever possible.
Fair and Competitive Wage Rates
We pay fair and competitive wage rates to all our team well ahead of national minimum requirements.
Code of Conduct
All suppliers which we are in direct contact with are asked to follow the Ethical Trading Initiative (ETI) Base Code. This sets out minimum standards relating to working conditions, pay and employment rights and is an internationally recognised code of labour practice. This code outlines workers’ fundamental rights and freedoms including the elimination of forced labour. We continually review this Code to ensure any new advances are updated and communicated to our suppliers. In addition to these standards, suppliers must comply with all relevant local and national laws. Factories are visited by our team to ensure this code is followed. Any irregularities found must be corrected or as a last result our business would be moved elsewhere.
We donate all our unwanted samples and faulty goods to BDF Newlife Charity, a charity for disabled children, to ensure nothing within our business goes to waste. New Life support disabled, sick and terminally ill children helping to get them the essential equipment they need. Find out more at https://newlifecharity.co.uk/ We hope this goes some way to answer your questions about our ethical trading policy.
