As a proud member of the Sustainable Apparel Coalition (SAC) and one of the founding members of the Social Labor Convergence Program (SLCP), we are pleased to announce our Higg Facility Social Labor Module (Higg FSLM) scores using the SLCP’s Converged Assessment Framework (CAF).
The SLCP is a multi-stakeholder initiative that has developed and implemented a Converged Assessment Framework (CAF) to reduce audit fatigue and provide high quality, credible and actionable social and labor data. By eliminating duplicative social audits, SLCP helps users free-up resources currently spent on auditing, so that they can be reinvested in improving working conditions. For more information visit www.slconvergence.org. Higg is one of the accredited hosts for CAF data and offers a scoring and benchmarking through the Higg FSLM.
Each of TAL’s factories have completed the Higg FSLM self-assessment. Three have undergone Higg FSLM verification with one more verification pending. Our factory in Ethiopia is unable to conduct verification because verification is currently unavailable there. Please see below the breakdown of their verified Higg FSLM scores from CAF v1.4.
We encourage all of our customers to adopt the SLCP CAF as the social performance assessment tool. By choosing this tool our factories can set clear objectives to improve their social performance and spend more time implementing procedures and actions to meet these objectives.
