We are supporters of Ethical Trade initiatives
Ethical Trading Code
TES are committed to an Ethical Trading Code and aim to conduct business in an ethical, legal and socially responsible manner.
TES have in place an Ethical Trading Code (ETC). We are committed to this ETC and aim to conduct business in an ethical, legal and socially responsible manner. This commitment extends to suppliers and other associated external resources with which we chose to do business. TES recognise the responsibility that we share with our suppliers to source products in an ethical manner.
We want our Clients to be confident that people are treated fairly, are not exposed to unsafe working conditions and are not exploited. Our Ethical Trading Policy requires all our suppliers to comply with our ethical code which is based on the International Labour Organisation (ILO), national and international laws.
