Our ethical statement

Practice what you Post

Kindred’s Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) company policy is all about our duty and actions toward this world.

We recognise that we are part of a much bigger systems of people, values, organisations and mother nature. We acknowledge that our mere existence as a company causes an impact, therefore we are committed to always give back to the world as it constantly gives to us. We want to have the highest standards of awareness, professionalism, accountability and ethics that not only follow, but lead in our field, but we also recognise that we are all human and won’t always get it right. We therefore are committed to listen and learn too.

We have outlined below, a policy that we want to adhere to and work towards with our company, its subsidiaries, our partners, our community and suppliers. We aim to be proactive and compliant with our (CSR) to promote human rights, help communities and protect our natural world.

Compliance

Legality

We will:

  • Respect the law
  • Honour our internal policies
  • Ensure all business operations are legitimate and in line with our values
  • Keep every partnership and collaboration open and transparent

Business ethics

We’ll always conduct business with integrity and respect to human rights. We’ll promote, encourage and incentivise:

  • Safety and fair dealing with our suppliers and their supply chains
  • Respect toward the consumer
  • Anti-bribery and anti-corruption practices

In time, we will be setting up and ethical advisory committee, so that all ethical expectations can be met, reviewed and matters of due diligence can be addressed.

Protecting the environment

Our company recognises the need to protect the natural environment. Keeping our environment clean and unpolluted is a benefit to all. We’ll always follow best practices when disposing garbage and using chemical substances. Stewardship will also play an important role.

Protecting people

We’ll ensure that we:

  • Don’t risk the health and safety of our employees and community.
  • Avoid harming the lives of local and indigenous people.
  • Support diversity and inclusion.
  • Proactively conduct due diligence on the supply chain practices of all brands on our platform, where information is available.

Human rights

Our company is dedicated to protecting human rights. We are a committed equal opportunity employer and will abide by all fair labour practices. We’ll ensure that our activities do not directly or indirectly violate human rights in any country (e.g. forced labour, child labour, etc).

Proactiveness

Donations and aid

Giving back and charitable contributions are central to our actions. We work with trusted partners to direct a percentage of all Kindred sales to high-impact charities and non-profits transforming lives around the world.

Volunteering

We encourage our own staff and partners staff to volunteer under their own steam and through organised programmes.

Learning

Our company is committed to the United Nations Global Compact. We’ll readily act to promote our identity as a socially aware and responsible business. We will communicate this policy and we are committed to remedying any CSR issues that may be brought to our attention.

We want to have the highest standards of awareness, professionalism, accountability and ethics that not only follow, but lead in our field, but we also recognise that we are all human and won’t always get it right. We therefore are committed to listen and learn, too. We will implement systems and procedures for our internal staff, external partners, and the consumer base to confidentially report any issues or recommendations, and will thoughtfully address these on a case-by-case basis.
