When it comes to the PEOPLE in our supply chain, our key focus is on achieving fair, safe and healthy working conditions, as well as protecting human rights. We engage in key industry partnerships and make use of tools such as the Higg Index Facility Social & Labor Module (Higg FSLM) to monitor working conditions.

We have a clear understanding of the social risks within our supply chain and run programs on:

Workers’ Rights

To improve fair, safe and healthy working conditions in our supply chain, we work closely with our suppliers.


  • 70% of our Tier 1 cut-make-trim factories completed the Higg Facility Social & Labor Module (Higg FSLM) self-assessment.
  • 70% of our direct suppliers have been trained in social dialogue, grievances and worker committees.

2025 GOAL: Improve current complaint systems towards global independency and confidentiality, to strengthen workers voices in G-Star RAW supply chain

Fair Wages

A minimum wage is the lowest wage permitted by law in any given country, this doesn’t always suffice for a normal standard of living. That is why we joined ACT on Living Wages.


  • Collaborated with Better Buying initiative to gain insight in how to improve G-Star’s purchasing practices.
  • Joined ACT (Action, Collaboration, Transformation) to support living wages through collective bargaining.

2025 GOAL: Work towards an industry wide agreement on regional living wages and support implementation in G-Star RAW production Countries.
