LightSource is committed to being an ethical company in all respects. And our approach to sourcing products and working with our manufacturing partners is no different. We know from how important it is to work with trustworthy manufacturers who create quality products.
These are the of core principles our Responsible Sourcing strategy:
All products go through a full product development cycle and testing, where commercial standards are reviewed based on the specific product and its target market. This starts from the raw materials all the way to the final product. Products are put through rigorous use before being presented to you to ensure their quality.
Fair Treatment of Labor
LightSource will only work with manufacturers who treat their workers with respect. We have a zero-tolerance policy for any type of forced labor, prison labor, child labor, etc. Local labor laws must be followed regarding hours, pay, overtime, break time, and providing good working conditions.
Follow the Law
LightSource only sells products that are legal to distribute in the local market. We rely on our market research, supply chain knowledge, and strategy to find great products at great prices. We do not rely on misrepresentations or cutting corners.
At the end of the day, LightSource operates with the fundamental belief that we, as a company, will go farther by doing things with integrity and building long term relationships with our clients and vendors. We will never prioritize short term gains over doing the right thing.
All of our manufacturing partners pass our internal LightSource Audit. If you have any requirements for specific accredidations, audits, or certifications, just let us know and we can pair you with a manufacturer that meets your needs.
