Business integrity

Honesty, integrity, rigor and fair play are at the core of the Ethical Supply Chain Program.

All Ethical Supply Chain Program staff – and our appointed third-party auditors – must observe the laws and regulations of the jurisdiction where they are located, and maintain a high standard of professional ethics when conducting business. We take a zero-tolerance approach to bribery and corruption.

We expect all ESCP Ethical Toy Program Accredited auditors – whether internal audit specialists or third-party accredited auditors – to be courteous to factory staff during an audit and perform their work with honesty, diligence, and responsibility.

You can view a list of the third-party audit firms accredited by the Ethical Supply ChainProgram here. A list of Ethical Supply Chain Program Audit Specialist Staff is available here.

Please note that these are the only authorized representatives of the  Ethical Supply Chain Program who can visit your factory to conduct audits on behalf of the Ethical Supply Chain Program.

We expect all  Ethical Supply Chain Program factories to act with openness and integrity and to meet  Ethical Supply Chain Program requirements on business integrity.
