自2010年以來，該集團一直積極參與SAC(可持續服裝聯盟)，這是一個致力於減少鞋類產品的社會影響的貿易組織。該公司與公平勞動協會(association of Fair Labour, 2014b)自過去15年以來一直保持著夥伴關系，並一直是推動行業進入公平執法或促進、健康和更安全的工作實踐下一個水平的有效措施(阿迪達斯集團，2014b)。這個公平勞工協會是一個非盈利組織，由幾家有社會責任感的公司、非政府組織和致力於保護全球工人權利的大學組成。它需要附屬組織在國際上符合公認的勞工標準，而不管產品是在哪裏生產的。該機構還為每一家參與的公司進行獨立性質的評估，並印刷年度結果，這使該機構成為保障和保護工人權利的強有力的動態過程。本公司的監察計劃是透過FLA認可的。
此外，在2014年，公司致力於修訂其員工行為準則，這是集團公平競爭框架的基礎。這被擴展到更多的熱線系統工人，使更多的工人在公司的全球化供應鏈(Moosmayer et al.， 2014)。總體而言，通過這些行為，公司縱容加強對利益攸關方的投訴制度，因為利益攸關方在企業全球化經營中遵守了無條件的人權保護承諾。
公司通過這種公平的做法，對員工的生活和工廠工人的生活，以及公司擁有更多業務的社區居民的生活產生積極的影響(Adidas Group, 2014a)。
公司在公平工資問題上的立場，建立在全面接觸利益相關者的基礎上，這些利益相關者包括供應商、工作組、工會、投資機構以及政府。公平工資的概念與生活工資相比要寬泛得多，因為它不僅涉及支付的生活成本金額，而且還涉及工人生產的產品價格和雇主的利潤(Adidas Group, 2014b)。因此，公司進行公平的工資公開談判，明確溝通，及時支付。公司還通過長期研究，利用公平工資為基礎，並在供應鏈中應用尊重、保護和促進工人薪酬的框架，繼續處理生活工資的概念。
Since the year 2010, the group has been involved actively in the SAC (Sustainable apparel coalition) which is a trading organization working for reducing the social influences of footwear products. The company has a partnership with the association of Fair Labour since the past 15 years and has continued to be an effective measure for moving the industry into next level of fair enforcement or promotion and healthy as well as safer work practices (Adidas Group, 2014b). This fair labour association is a non-profit organization and is made up of several corporations socially responsible, organizations that are non-government and universities having dedication over protecting the rights of workers across the globe. It needs affiliated organizations to internationally meet with recognized standards of labour disregard of where products have been made. This authority also conducts assessments of independent nature for every company participating and prints the annual results which makes this authority a strong dynamic of process for securing and protecting rights of workers. The monitoring programme of the company is accredited through the FLA.
Also, in the year 2014, the company indulged in revising its conduct code, for the employees which was the group’s foundation for Fair Play framework. This was extended to more hotline system workers allowing to reach more workers within the globalized supply chain of the company (Moosmayer et al., 2014). Collectively, with such acts, the company indulges in strengthening the system of complaint for the stakeholders for keeping the commitment of unconditional nature in Human Rights protection within the globalized operations of businesses.
Furthermore, essential feature of the company’s strategy of sustainability is the properly established network for stakeholders in all of the nations the company sources through. Such networks are inclusive of civil society institutes, human rights and NGOs environmentally along with trading unions.
The company through such fair practices indulges in positively influencing the employees’ lives and the lives of workers in the factory along with the ones living across communities wherein the company has more presence (Adidas Group, 2014a).
The guiding principles of UN over human rights and businesses call over organizations to understand their impacts potentially and actually over the rights. The principle also guides to take action when the key duty lies in protecting the rights of humans. For the past 15 years, indeed, this is what the group has been doing and has continued to do so. Whenever the company addresses the concerns of human rights, it follows a clear framework for respect, protection and promotion.
The position of the company over fair wages has its basis over comprehensively engaging with stakeholders inclusive of suppliers, working groups, unions, investment makers as well as governments. The fair wages conception is much broad in comparison to the living wages as it indulges in addressing not only the paid amount with regard to costs of living but also to the product price which is made by the workers and the profits of employer’s (Adidas Group, 2014b). Therefore, the company engages in fair wages open negotiation, clear communication and prompt payment. The company has also continued addressing the concept of living wage through leveraging fair wages based long term research and through applying the framework of respecting, protecting and promoting the workers compensation within the chain of supply.
