Principle Two: Transparency and Accountability

The organisation is transparent in its management and commercial relations. It is accountable to all its stakeholders and respects the sensitivity and confidentiality of commercial information supplied. The organisation finds appropriate, participatory ways to involve employees, members and producers in its decision-making processes. It ensures that relevant information is provided to all its trading partners. The communication channels are good and open at all levels of the supply chain.

  • Another International Women's Day celebrating empowering ladies of Selyn. We couldn't be more proud. #IWD2020 #eachforequal
  • In a society where women are expected to become stay at home moms from the day they get married, Selyn along with fair trade principles introduced a work culture that helps women achieve their true potential as working mothers. While challenging gender-based inequalities, Selyn started its journey nearly 30 years ago to provide women employment that empowers them. Not only fair and equal pay with good working conditions, but Selyn employees are also provided with in-house daycare facilities so that mothers do not have to give up their careers after childbirth. Something all Sri Lankan employers to think about this International Women’s Day. #EachForEqual #IWD2020
  • International Women’s day is right around the corner, and we can not wait to celebrate our wonderful Selyn sisters and what we stand for. This year, with women around the world, we are celebrating the International Women’s Day with the message #EachForEqual, to create a gender-equal world for us and the future. Follow us and stay tuned to learn more about how Selyn challenge stereotypes, fight bias, broaden perceptions, improve situations and celebrate women's achievements as a fair trade company in a tiny little island in Asia. #iwd2020
