As a proud
member of the Sustainable Apparel Coalition (SAC) and one of the founding
members of the Social Labor Convergence Program (SLCP), we are pleased to
announce our Higg Facility Social Labor Module (Higg FSLM) scores using the
SLCP’s Converged Assessment Framework (CAF).
is a multi-stakeholder initiative that has developed and implemented a
Converged Assessment Framework (CAF) to reduce audit fatigue and provide
high quality, credible and actionable social and labor data. By eliminating
duplicative social audits, SLCP helps users free-up resources currently
spent on auditing, so that they can be reinvested in improving working
conditions. For more information visit www.slconvergence.org. Higg is one of the accredited
hosts for CAF data and offers a scoring and benchmarking through the Higg
TAL’s six factories have completed the FSLM/CAF self-assessment. Three have
undergone verification in the past year with two more verifications
pending. Our factory in Ethiopia is unable to conduct verification because
verification is currently unavailable there. For the three factories who
have completed the verification, please see below the breakdown of their
verified Higg FSLM scores from CAF v1.4.
encourage all of our customers to adopt the SLCP CAF as the social
performance assessment tool. By choosing this tool our factories can set
clear objectives to improve their social performance and spend more time
implementing procedures and actions to meets these objectives.
