Mission Statement SUCK UK Ltd is committed to sourcing quality merchandise and developing partnerships with suppliers who share common principles of social and environmental accountability. We ensure that our required standards are met by our suppliers and where necessary factory audits are carried out. We require the same principles to be adopted by all our manufacturing partners at all times.
Ethical Standards and Social Responsibility We ask our partners follow our strict code of conduct, and to ensure supplier responsibility we audit facilities, making sure working conditions are safe and just.
Manufacturing Standards At SUCK UK we care about how our products are manufactured and the working conditions in which they are produced. We are committed to ensuring that our chosen suppliers provide a safe and hygienic working environment for all of their employees.
Wages and Hours Our suppliers shall pay all workers at least the minimum legal wage governed in their local areas in a timely manner. Whilst overtime is voluntary and may be necessary at times during peak time production, our suppliers operate in a manner that limits overtime to a level that ensures a safe and productive working environment.
Respect for Individuals SUCK UK believes that individuals should be employed on the basis of their ability to do a good job – not on the basis of individual characteristics or beliefs. We refuse to develop business with any supplier who discriminates either in hiring or in employment practices.

Clearly label the materials we use for recycling purposes.
Dispose of harmful waste materials safely and cleanly where their use cannot be avoided.
