Sweet Protection, as a part of Active Brands, is sourcing from one supplier in Myanmar, with whom we have a long-term relationship. Due to the unstable situation in the country following the military coup, Myanmar has been classified as a high-risk sourcing country and as a background of this Active Brands is carefully following the situation and are in close dialogue with our supplier located there.
We have conducted a thorough due diligence process to ensure there are no ties between the supplier and Myanmar’s ruling military.
After evaluating the outcome of our due diligence and consulting with ethical trade organizations and Norwegian government experts we have decided to continue our business relationship with our supplier in Myanmar. We are continuing to monitor the issues in the country and at the same time recognize that the civilian population has a need for foreign investment and trade to ensure an income.
