HUMAN RIGHTS & MODERN SLAVERY

Lola&Lykke diligently upholds human rights in its own activities as well as in the supply chain. Owing to its customer base, Lola&Lykke’s products go through rigorous testing to safeguard the health and well-being of women and children. The company also requires its suppliers to provide evidence of no slave labour in their business operations, while verifying other human rights requirements via periodic third-party audits. The monitoring is, in some cases, contractual. Both internal and external Lola&Lykke policies provide a basis for assessing how business operations may impact peoples’ rights. By tracking human rights criteria over time, Lola&Lykke can work closely with key suppliers to undertake corrective actions and, in turn, build stronger partnerships. The emphasis on due diligence underscores Lola&Lykke’s accountability when it comes to workers’ rights, its customer base, and the supply chain.​
