Partners of the highest standards—that’s our promise
All of our partners are carefully screened in our extensive two-part vetting process. Our strict criteria includes more than living wages, fair treatment of workers, safe working conditions and environmentally sustainable practices. Our partners also invest in their worker communities and respect Catholic social and moral teaching in their business practices. You won’t find this faith component anywhere else.
