Additionally, there’s a strict policy to only work with ethical suppliers which assure the health and safety of the personnel throughout operations.

Additionally, we have developed internal procedures to tackle this matter, such as promoting recycling and waste reduction, plastic avoidance and installation of LED’s to save energy.

Community:

HRP has already made donations to help organize local festivities in Barcelos. Furthermore, every year during Christmas time, HRP encourages our suppliers to donate garments which are not up to standards to be shipped, and make sure they find their way to the ones in need.
