We are committed to building a transparent and ethical marketplace. All network members will review and sign the Oceanworks Code of Conduct when they join the Marketplace. This tells us that our suppliers share our values and are committed to the goal of ensuring all products marked Oceanworks Guaranteed have been sourced in alignment with the principles of: 1) material authenticity and quality, 2) supply chain transparency, 3) ethical treatment of people and planet, and 4) regulatory compliance.

Any new supplier to our network must also complete qualification and on boarding prior to listing material with Oceanworks. This process was developed in alignment with iSeal and includes a detailed checklist focused on compliance with local regulations - environmental, social, business, etc. We also review any existing audits and have engaged 3rd party auditors that are positioned to conduct additional audits at the customer request.
