TCS is an active member of Sedex (Supplier Ethical Data Exchange) and we are dedicated to working with our key factories on an ongoing basis to ensure they remain committed to the process of continual improvement of working conditions and good employment practices, and remain true to the ETI (Ethical Trading Initiative) Base Code.
To ensure high standards are maintained, we audit all of our key factories to internationally recognized codes such as SMETA, BSCI and ILS on a regular basis with the help of independent auditing companies and our China office. Our China team includes a fully qualified auditor on hand to provide support and ongoing monitoring, guaranteeing exceptional standards beyond the audit. We help to train our factories through comprehensive Critical Action Plans on best practice for health & safety and good employment practices. This supportive approach allows us to develop and maintain strong, long-term partnerships with our factories, which is reflected in the quality of product we deliver.
TCS is committed to keeping ahead of the pace of change in global employment standards, working with various ethical consultancies and auditing firms to ensure employees are always up to date on key issues that affect people throughout our supply chain, and sharing this knowledge at all levels to secure better conditions for workers.
