Our commitments principally result in our desire to establish

labour standards aimed at improving working conditions in our

factories. This is the reason why SOL’S joined the international

association

Fair Wear Foundation

in 2014.

By joining the

Fair Wear Foundation

, SOL’S is

also committed to make improvements in

line with current social standards (bringing

concrete improvements in labour standards

in collaboration with plant managers), based

on an action plan approved by the

Fair

Wear Foundation

. Every year, SOL’S commits

itself to provide a status report containing

the improvements made to the

Fair Wear

Foundation

.

The

Fair Wear Foundation

(FWF) is an independent, non-proÿt organisation

that works with companies and factories to improve labour conditions

for textile and garment workers. The

Fair Wear Foundation

’s Code of

Labour Practices is based on the conventions of the International Labour

Organisation and the United Nations. The 70 member companies represent

nearly 100 brands and are based in seven European countries. The FWF is

active in 15 production countries in Asia, Europe and Africa.

HUMANITARIAN

ACTIONS

Much more than an orphanage, it is a reception

and training centre supported by SOL’S

since 2009. Unique in Bangladesh and fully

autonomous, it helps destitute families as well

as orphans, providing education to over 500

children and training to 150 mothers allowing

t em to regain a social and professional life.

Concerned with those who will become the

future leaders of Bangladesh, SOL’S is proud to

sponsor this important annual students’ festival.

For 10 years, it has been bringing together

hundreds of young leaders around debates on

social, political, economic and cultural issues,

in order to promote their ideas and encourage

them to act collectively for the development

of their country.

Continuously improving the health of local

populations. Also in Bangladesh, SOL’S is

involved in a remarkable operation alongside

the Nari Uddug Kendra (NUK) NGO to finance

the Agarasindhur community hospital. This

project aims at improving the health of women

and children living in the rural community, and

at supplying the district’s population with a low-

cost, good-quality medical service. SOL’S pays the

wages of its medical sta˜ as well as operational

costs. Thanks to these actions, every year more

Enfants du Monde enables children with heart

malformation to undergo surgery in France when

they lack the technical and ÿnancial means to be

cared for in their countries of origin. Each month,

MCC welcomes children in 9 French towns. In

addition to this main mission, the Association

also supports the training of referring doctors

in their countries of origin, as well as school

sponsorship.

MCC’s commitment to this cause promotes

strong values such as boldness, generosity,

e˜ ectiveness, transparency and combativeness.

Sharing these values, SOL’S sponsors the

Association by providing clothing to its teams

and volunteers in many events such as the Tour

de France. Moreover, SOL’S o˜ ers its products to

be sold for the beneÿt of the MCC association in

events such as: the Le Mans 24 hours race, the

Tour de France’s Etape du cœur stage, the Yogis

du cœur meeting, the Gentleman du cœur cycle

race, the Qatar Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe horse

race, the Salon du Chocolat exhibition in Paris,

the Vendée Globe yacht race...»
