(1) The primary reason for part-time positions is that Lindex prioritises being able to give custumers the best service in the store's most attractive opening hours.
(2) Lindex believes in equal opportunities and takes care to be a company that is attractive to both women and men. We value and work for equality of opportunity within the company and can show an equal balance in appointments to management positions.
(3) Lindex does not own any factories or manufacturing facilities. We work with external suppliers who are responsible for production.
(4) Suppliers which have signed contracts with Lindex are subject to regular Code of Conduct audits and ongoing follow-ups.
(5) A total of 283 inspections were carried out at Lindex suppliers in 2015. Lindex own inspectors performed 114 of the inspections, and 115 were performed by external audit companies. Less number of audit compare to previous year mainly due to a) less number of factories, b) waited for updated/new BSCI code of conduct.
(6) In 2015 a total of 35 training events were arranged for Lindex suppliers under the auspices of Lindex and BSCI. The training events focused mainly on the following: Fire Safety, Compensation & Working hours, Health & Safety Management and Rights and Responsibilities of Workers.
(7) During 2015 no cases of child labour was reported.
(8) In 2015 Lindex boosted the fight against breast cancer funding through a range of activities; 10% of all sales during a Saturday in October and 10% of all sport bra sales of throughout October was donated. Sales of scented candles, lip gloss and the annual Pink Ribbon, also contributed greatly to this year’s donation.
