Pepco Group’s own vertically integrated sourcing business, PGS, is responsible for over 75% of the general merchandise and apparel items that we offer in our stores.
The Group has strong policies in place to protect to protect the integrity of our supply chain. We regularly engage with our suppliers and conduct audits. The Group operates a Supplier Code of Conduct for its supply chain and factories.
All active factories are audited at least once per year by Pepco Group Compliance in accordance with local law and our Code of Conduct.
The Supplier Code of Conduct ensures colleagues in factories are treated fairly and lays out our position on bribery, transparency and unauthorised subcontracting. It is aligned with the Ethical Trading Initiative Base Code, an internationally recognised set of labour standards based on International Labour Organisation conventions.
