As a reputable and trusted business committed to offering its customers high quality products, Zimbabwe Sculpture recognises its obligation to ensure that suppliers are operating ethically.
We expect our suppliers to consistently provide an environment which protects their employees' health and safety and basic human rights. All suppliers are expected to comply with their national employment laws and regulations with particular regard to :
• Minimum age of employment
• Freely chosen employment
• Health and safety
• Freedom of association and the right to collective bargaining
• No discrimination
• No harsh or inhumane treatment
• Working hours
• Rates of pay
• Terms of employment
Zimbabwe Sculpture will never knowingly source stock from suppliers which are in breach of the above principles. We also look to our suppliers to instil these principles when dealing with their own supplier base.
Because of the nature of our supply chain, it is not always possible to monitor and control the conditions of each individual involved in the production of our products. However, Zimbabwe Sculpture recognises the importance of being proactive and doing everything within its power to support the rights of those involved in the manufacture of its goods.
