By signing the Agreement, Je m’appelle commits to doing its due diligence. This means that the company takes responsibility for its supply chain. And identifies, prevents, reduces and remediates risks of negative impact on humans, the environment and animals.

After signing, signatories start by filling in the Due Diligence Questionnaire. This is a questionnaire in which the realization of improvements in the supply chain is peeled off to 130 questions. The questions vary from questions about where clothing is made, which processes are set up to monitor the use of subcontractors. But also questions about which stakeholders are involved in addressing problems at production locations, or questions about the goals of the company to start using more sustainable materials. Find all the questions here. When a new signatory completes the questionnaire for the first time, this serves as a baseline measurement to determine where the company is currently at in its process to become more sustainable.
