Ethical Trading Policy 


Even a small business has an impact on the people in its supply chain and the wider environment. At Commotion, we are always aiming to improve our high standards of ethical trading. We work hard to commit to the following practices and will endeavour to: 

  • Encourage and promote Fair Trade practices, goods, and services that are applicable to our business.
  • Help our suppliers to improve the quality control of their produce and to improve their own practices (through knowledge transfer).
  • Ensure wooden products are from sustainable sources, or have been certified by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC).
  • Look after the welfare of all staff in the supply chain.
  • Work only with suppliers who refuse to use child labour and are environmentally conscientious.
  • Ensure none of our business dealings overseas use bribery or support corruption.
  • Avoid discrimination on any grounds in the hiring of staff.
  • Make the health and safety of all our staff and suppliers a top priority.
  • Respect the environment and take care to reduce and recycle our office and warehouse packaging and supplies.
  • Ensure that we do not deliberately mislead or make false statements.
  • Be open and direct in our communication, honour and value the abilities and contributions of others, and embrace the responsibility and accountability for our actions in this regard.
  • Maintain an awareness of the needs of others and act to meet those needs wherever possible.
  • Act in ways that are consistent with our commitment to social responsibility.
