Ethical Manufacturing

The cornerstone of our business

Eastlink’s ethical business model guides our operation standards in every country we work in. From the welfare of employees and labour conditions, to operational processes and where we source our raw materials, we are continually working to maintain the highest standards. 

Our core areas of focus are:

  • Employment is freely chosen
  • Freedom of association and respecting the right to collective bargaining
  • Creating and championing safe and hygienic working conditions
  • No child labour
  • Paying employees living wages
  • Working hours are not excessive
  • Zero tolerance for discrimination
  • Meeting OH&S standards
  • Building and Equipment are certified
  • Achieving and maintaining SEDEX accreditation

Eastlink only works with manufacturers that meet our high ethical standards. We often help suppliers to comply, providing training and support to help them upskill.

In addition, we are focused on creating work practices that have minimal environmental impact:

Water and waste management

Eastlink works both internally and with factory partners to develop environmental water management plans for each site.

Timber sourced from FSC

We source timber from Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) approved suppliers. The standards set by the FSC ensure business and consumers are supporting the responsible management of forests worldwide. Look for the FSC logo on products to know it has been made with, or contains, timber from FSC-certified forests or reclaimed sources.


Packaging to get products from A to B is an essential part of global business and we are aiming to minimise our environmental load. We have carried out life-cycle assessments on all packaging used to ensure the lowest environmental impact is achieved.
