We are a creative bunch at I.D. Me Promotions! We work hard to further our reputation: finding the perfect item for our clients and delivering the order on-time. We also strongly believe in our core values when it comes to how we interact with People, Products and the Planet. Today we want to focus on the “People” that make the products we sell that carry your brand. It’s our aspiration to know how people are treated up the supply chain when making our products. Most importantly it’s to improve the lives of workers - to help ensure that nobody is harmed in the production of a product with your name on it.
Our industry produces the fun stuff that clients distribute with their brand on it. These promotional products are used for a wide array of occasions including trade shows, recruiting, employee recognition, student spirit, athletic and event promotion. Unlike purchasing other commodity items, when your name goes on a product, your reputation and your company become joined to the product and the supply chain. Most of our client buyers initially think it’s someone else’s problem to worry about responsible sourcing, but in reality it’s the purchaser of promotional products that ultimately starts the domino effect of the supply chain. It’s that decision of which vendor to use that can be the difference towards aspiring to ethically source branded promotional items; items that have your name on it. Everyone, and we really do mean everyone we speak with does not want to get their products from a factory that abuses their workers. The problem is, do they know enough about their vendor practices? Should they know more about the product that carries their name? Does the promotional product with their name carry the same values as their company?
Not long ago when products were manufactured in the U.S., we knew the production site. We also had a comfort level that U.S. laws and regulations and the U.S. infrastructure to enforce them were not infallible but relatively reliable. In today’s growing promotional products industry, products are now sourced from countries around the globe. Foreign places where societal values might be different than ours or, similar but simply not enforced. These international supply chains are very opaque. Although the International Labor Organization (ILO) published minimum norms of behavior (and generally codified and communicated by a company’s Code of Conduct for labor practices), the biggest problem in stopping products made by factories that don’t abide these expectations is that supply lines are not transparent and therefore not traceable. Supply chains have become very complex and lack communication between actors where information sharing is most commonly seen as a competitive disadvantage. Companies do not want to disclose their sources after years of developing relationships with their suppliers. This “business protection” is further repeated up the supply chain-links to their supplier's supplier, and so on.
To muddy the waters even more, American companies may place their order directly with a factory, and those factories may subcontract to other factories without the knowledge of the American company. It’s essentially window dressing - using a factory that looks like a good actor whereby the order gets offloaded to a sister factory that is not so good. Even more confusion can be caused if buying agents are used instead of an American company working directly with a factory.
Import supply chains are not easy for companies to control. Some companies, including our industry’s largest, will state that they follow the laws of the country or region that they produce. But that’s simply not enough. Laws may be too weak or to few. Even where adequate laws are present, local governments may lack the infrastructure to enforce them opening a path towards abusive behavior. It can’t be said enough, when supply chains lack transparency, the door opens for abusive labor tactics. Add the impact of pricing pressure to the mix and social compliance will most likely suffer. It takes diligence and continual monitoring using practices like factory audits, corrective action plans, remediation and repeating these events for as long as the supply chain is being used.
The objective of vetting our vendors for social compliance policies and procedures is very important. Knowing that workers are forced to operate in poor working conditions is just not acceptable. At I.D. Me Promotions we seek to work with supply chains that demonstrate ethical values that meet or exceed international norms of behavior. We look to work with suppliers that practice social compliance and treat their employees with respect. We require our suppliers to sign our own Code of Conduct so that they understand our expectations for labor standards. We work with factories where other like minded companies share our values and demand the similar expectations. We look for factories that are actively engaged with their supply chains, have dedicated compliance officers and are involved in compliance minded industry and non-governmental organizations (NGO’s).
Once we have confidence that a supplier is serious about sharing our social compliant values, we post that information on our website to do our part in being as transparent as possible. We acknowledge that this is a beginning step, but if we all commit to taking action today, we can collectively change the lives of workers around the world. This transparency allows clients to have confidence in the products that they order. With this information, our clients can better enjoy their products because they have a better idea of where the products are coming from, how they were made, and what they are made of. All of these steps are taken to ensure our products are of high quality and made in a safe manner, while also offering effective forms of advertising for our clients and an ease in ordering.
