Social Responsibility

We care about our products as well as the context
in which they are made.

In 2006, we became one of the first apparel manufacturers in China to become certified for SA8000, one of the world's strictest social
responsibility standards.

We strictly adhere to better both local laws and international human rights norms. Our respect for our people has been the foundation for our 60-year success.

We are passionate about safeguarding the environment in which we live and operate.

The World Wildlife Fund (WWF) selected us as its first apparel industry partner for the Low Carbon Manufacturing Program, and it honoured the company’s low carbon footprint initiatives with a Silver Award.

The other founding members include TAL Apparel, Crystal Group, Central Textiles, and Fountain Set.
