Why is Glassons a high risk company?
Glassons is a high risk company because they have hardly disclosed anything about their suppliers and manufacturing processes. And it’s not because no one’s asked – there have been hundreds of social media requests for their Code of Conduct and their suppliers. They’re proof that they possibly aren’t an ethical company. And that’s not including the 18 months allotted for providing information for the Baptist World Aid Fair Trade Report, AND the two copies of the unpublished report delivered by post. If you knew you would be getting an overall D- as your score, wouldn’t you send information to improve? That is, if you could improve. This information definitely looks suspicious. Why aren’t they giving this information? Isn’t this suspicious? Do you want to be responsible for encouraging unethical companies by purchasing their clothes?
As well as that, on the 2015 Baptist World Aid Fair Trade Report, they got a F (worst possible grade) in almost all categories, including supplying a living wage to their workers , traceability, monitoring, and worker’s rights.
That is why it’s impossible to deny that Glassons is without a doubt, an extremely high risk company until they decide to disclose this information.
