Solo invest is a French company that joined FWF June 2014.


Brand Performance Check 2015

Sol’s met most of FWF's management system requirements to improve working conditions. In 2014 Sol’s monitored 27% of its total purchasing volume, which is below the 40% required of brands in its first year of membership. However, in light of the fact that Sol’s only became a member of Fair Wear in June 2014, and therefore had less time to make necessary arrangements, and the fact that a number of audits are planned that expect to bring its monitoring percentage above 60% in 2015, FWF has used its dicretionary power and awarded a good rating.

Sol's systematically works towards resolution of corrective actions in all countries and follow up is being closely monitored and documented. High leverage and stable relationships with its suppliers gives Sol's a strong basis for effectively monitoring working conditions.

In 2014 FWF audited two of Sol's suppliers in Bangladesh, which revealed excessive overtime and payment below living wages. Sol's can take steps towards analysing the root causes of excessive overtime and payment below living wages and how this relates to its own buying practices. Moreover, it can encourage more suppliers to take part in FWF's Workplace Education Programme.

"For more than 15 years, Sol's has been ethically and socially engaged, thanks to the commitment of men and women who make up the SOL'S team. SOL'S is involved in strong and long-lasting humanitarian operations, such as supporting the Sreepur Village orphanage and its women center in Bangladesh, financing a hospital to supply the rural population with good-quality medical service and education, or helping the French association "Save the Hospital".

These values are part of SOL'S DNA so that we naturally adopted the "The Fair Spirit" slogan in 2011.
It was therefore logical and natural for us to join FAIR WEAR FOUNDATION, which shares our same values."

SOL'S Chairman
