    Sherpa Adventure Gear

    At Sherpa, we are passionate about upholding the rights of those involved at every phase of production. We endeavour towards achieving the highest standards of working conditions and ensure our partners work with us to ensure the fair and ethical treatment of all people associated with us. As part of this scheme we undertake a vendor partner qualification process, this requires all our partners to adhere to strict Compliance Criteria which is defined below.

    Based upon international labour standards and best practises in the industry, our procedures ensure that all parties including our teams and other suppliers adhere to these rules. This is done through the pooling of resources to carry out vigorous compliance inspections to ensure the following criteria is met.

    • Law And Factory We require each manufacturing partner to carry an up to date business permit, and to comply with local laws. This includes the use of contracts, current labour laws and employee handbooks.
    • No Child Labour A strict anti-child labour strategy requires partners to keep up to date employee records with the ages of all workers confirmed.
    • No Prison or Forced Labor All partners must confirm that they do not use any forced labour of any kind by signing an agreement.
    • Working Hours Reviews of the working hours, attendance records and overtime waivers are carried out periodically to ensure compliance.
    • Wages and Benefits We require up-to-date records of payroll, working permits, leave applications and resignations.
    • Non Discrimination Our anti-discrimination policy requires access to all disciplinary records.
    • Environment We ensure that partners deliver health examinations to check for contact with hazardous waste materials.
    • Health and Safety All facilities must have building permits, factory layouts, fire certificates, equipment and training manuals, accident reports, PPE (personal protective equipment) medical records, machinery listings, maintenance and training records.
  • Handcrafed in Nepal

    Making products in Nepal means the world to us, socially and economically. Many of our partners in Nepal provide work to women who otherwise may not have this opportunity by completing work in small co-ops or working from home. When work is done outside a factory or taken home, we strive to ensure a high level of standards, however, we are unable to visit each as we would a larger factory. We are honoured that these programs bring meaningful employment and income to so many.
