Outdoor Cap Corporate Responsibility
Through training, monitoring, and maintenance, the corporate responsibility department works to uphold the Outdoor Cap standard of being a respected, safe, and fair company by being a front-end resource of compliance requirements throughout the supply chain.
Code of Conduct
Outdoor Cap is founded on our core principals to act with integrity, treat others with respect, and work together as a team. We hold these same expectations of our suppliers. Our Code of Conduct outlines the minimum requirements with which all suppliers to Outdoor Cap must comply.
It is our responsibility to ensure that forced labor, slavery and trafficking do not occur within our supply chain. We seek to comply with all applicable national laws where we do business and to respect international principles aimed at preventing and eradicating these practices. Our Code of Conduct aligns with the International Labor Organization's standards and addresses forced labor, child labor, harassment or abuse, discrimination, wages, freedom of association, and more to protect against the risks associated with the trafficking and slavery of workers.
We hold our partners and ourselves accountable for developing attainable solutions to social issues. In combination with frequent visits of Outdoor Cap employees, our manufacturing partners are required to participate in social compliance audits of facilities. These independent annual audits help Outdoor Cap monitor how each facility is functioning and aids them in working towards improvements if needed.
Outdoor Cap has an active sustainability task force made up of representatives from several departments who have been challenged to identify and implement projects that reduce our environmental impacts. We regularly assess and adopt sustainable fiber options that align with our sustainability goals. Within our supply chain we continue to increase visibility of the environmental performance of individual manufacturing and textile production facilities with a focus on empowering them to identify and prioritize sustainability improvements.
Outdoor Cap has been a certified member of US Customs Trade Partnership Against Terrorism (C-TPAT) since 2005. All our supply chain partners are required to meet U.S. minimum security criteria as outlined by C-TPAT program.
We are committed to assuring that materials used to manufacture our products are safe and that they meet or exceed all applicable U.S. product safety laws. Our suppliers are required to adhere to Outdoor Cap’s product standards which include our Restricted Substances List (RSL), prohibiting or limiting the use of high concern substances. Our responsible testing program uses a multilevel approach to verify manufacturers produce goods that meet our standards as well as those of the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act (CPSIA), California’s Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986 (Proposition 65) along with other applicable laws.
