We are proud to share that we have achieved BRE Ethical Labour Sourcing Standard 6002 for the 5th consecutive year. This standard enables us to demonstrate to customers, partners and other stakeholders, Marshalls’ commitment to eliminating any possibility of trafficking or modern slavery in our supply chain. It provides independent assurance that we have made a measurable commitment to managing ethical labour sourcing challenges in our company and supply chains.

Marshalls’ Business and Human Rights Director, Elaine Mitchel-Hill, said:

“We are rightly proud to have received this accreditation, over the past 5 years we have used it as a tool to push ourselves and raise our game. We have opted to engage with the accreditation to drive our continual improvement, to deliver back on our modern slavery statement and commitments, and essentially to harness its power.”

The Ethical Labour Sourcing Standard provides a framework against which companies can examine and assess their own practices. They can then showcase their ethical sourcing credentials by gaining third-party Ethical Labour Sourcing verification from BRE Global, and setting agreed objectives to demonstrate continuous improvement.
