Eddie Bauer - csrreport 2001
We are active participants in the
Fair Labor Association (FLA), a non-
profit organization and monitoring
system established to protect the rights
of workers worldwide. FLA accredits
independent monitors, certifies that
companies are in compliance with its
Code of Conduct, and serves as a source
of information for the public. Other
major brands, special interest groups,
and colleges/universities and their licensees also are members.
FLA enhancements to our program include more systematic
risk assessment, increased worker education and interviews,
expanded factory inspections, outreach to special interest groups
knowledgeable about local issues, use of external auditors, more
extensive collaboration with other brands, and public reporting
by FLA on our compliance program.
In many developing countries, child labor and lack of educa-
tion are problems in the workplace. To help respond to this,
Eddie Bauer has for several years helped
fund needy institutions in communities
where workers are making our product.
We are currently helping support an
orphanage in Guatemala and schools in
China, India and the Philippines.
Our relationships with non-
governmental organizations also
includes a partnership with Amnesty
International USA, to promote aware-
ness of human rights globally.

fully engaged in training for EB staff and suppliers in Asia and

the world.
