Brighton's empowerment of people extends not only into the communities in which we operate, but also into the world at large. As a vital part of that global commitment, we ensure that the people who craft Brighton's products abroad are treated with the same high level of respect as those who work in our own offices and factory here in the US. Human rights and ethical labor practices are at the heart of everything we create.
Our policy has been the same from day one, it continues today and will stay the same in the future: Any company that helps to produce our products or provides us with materials or services must ensure us that they follow all laws, including local labor laws, and that they will continue to do so.
While we don’t perform formal audits of companies who are partners in creating our products, each of the companies confirms in writing that they comply with these standards every time they deliver any products to Brighton.We don’t do formal training for our employees and managers or have a system of tracking contractors to see whether they meet our high standards regarding labor and human rights, but if we receive information or have any reason to believe that someone we do business with is not complying with our standards, we will offer them the chance to rise to our standards and, if that does not happen within a reasonable period of time, we will stop doing business with them.
