Stevenson's policy is to purchase goods and services that have been produced and supplied by workers who have been treated in a fair and legal manner without exploitation.

The laws of the land in the country that our goods and services originate from are the absolute minimum expectation and often we find our demands to be higher than the legal requirement.

We will also seek to source goods and services with the least negative impact on the environment.

Factories supplying Stevensons, whether directly or indirectly, shall be available for inspection at any time.
