Global Sourcing Guidelines

Northern Reflections Ltd. ("Northern Reflections") is concerned about the safety and fair treatment of the workers who manufacture the goods Northern Reflections sells, wherever the workers are located. To this end, Northern Reflections has developed the following Global Sourcing Guidelines, which shall apply worldwide to Northern Reflections’ suppliers. Northern Reflections' Global Sourcing Guidelines require all of Northern Reflections’ suppliers to respect certain employment standards that Northern Reflections believes should be universal notwithstanding more relaxed standards (if any) which may be imposed by applicable local laws.

In the selection of its suppliers, Northern Reflections works hard to choose reputable business partners who are committed to ethical standards and business practices compatible with those of the Northern Reflections. At the very minimum, Northern Reflections expects its suppliers to comply with all legal requirements applicable to the conduct of their business.

Each of the Northern Reflections' suppliers agrees that, by accepting orders from the Northern Reflections or any of its subsidiaries, it will abide by and implement the terms of these Global Sourcing Guidelines and require the same from each of its subcontractors. Each of the Northern Reflections' suppliers acknowledges that its failure to honour this agreement will compel Northern Reflections to re-evaluate, and possibly terminate, its business relationship with such supplier.

 

Employment Standards:

Northern Reflections will only do business with suppliers whose workers are, in all cases, present voluntarily, compensated fairly and allowed the right of free association and who are neither put at risk of physical harm, discriminated against, nor exploited in any way.

In particular, it is Northern Reflections' policy that:

Child Labour - Child labour is not permissible. Workers may not be younger than 15 years of age (or l4 where local law permits) or the age for completing compulsory education, if higher.

Prison/Forced Labour - Prison labour, forced labour and indentured labour is not permissible. Employment must always be on a voluntary basis.

Wages and Benefits - Northern Reflections will only deal with suppliers who compensate their employees fairly by providing wages and benefits that, at very least, comply with legally mandated minimum standards.

Working Hours - Northern Reflections will only deal with suppliers who maintain reasonable work hours, not exceeding prevailing local standards or any maximum prescribed by applicable laws.

Health and Safety - Northern Reflections will only deal with suppliers who provide their employees with a safe and healthy work environment, designed to prevent accidents and injury to health arising out of or occurring in the course of work. At the very least, the Northern Reflections requires that its suppliers comply with all applicable, legally mandated minimum standards for workplace health and safety.

Discrimination - Northern Reflections believes that employment should be based on ability and not on belief or any other personal characteristics. Thus, Northern Reflections will only deal with suppliers who do not practice discrimination in hiring or in other aspects of employment on the basis of race, color, national origin, gender, religion, sexual orientation, disability or similar factors.

Harassment and Abuse - Northern Reflections expects all employees to be treated with respect and dignity. Thus, Northern Reflections will not deal with suppliers whose employees are subjected to physical, sexual, psychological or verbal harassment or abuse.

Freedom of Association - Northern Reflections expects all of its suppliers to grant their employees the right to choose to affiliate with legally sanctioned organizations or associations without interference. These Global Sourcing Guidelines are distributed annually by the Northern Reflections to each of its suppliers. In order to assure that the Guidelines' contents are available to the workers whose well-being is their object, the Northern Reflections also requires its suppliers to post these Global Sourcing Guidelines prominently on the premises where goods for the Northern Reflections are manufactured.

To assure its suppliers' conformity with these Global Sourcing Guidelines, Northern Reflections reserves the right to make periodic, unannounced inspections of its suppliers' facilities. Moreover, each shipment of goods to the Northern Reflections must be accompanied by a certificate from the supplier confirming, in respect of the goods included in the shipment, that the supplier and each of its subcontractors have complied with the terms of these Global Sourcing Guidelines and that, in particular, neither forced labour nor child labour was employed in the manufacture of such goods.


Northern Reflections welcomes questions and comments regarding these Global Sourcing Guidelines, all of which should be sent to Northern Reflections at:
