We believe in the lessons sports teach—how championships are won on the practice field, how to win with grace and learn from setbacks, and how working together, focused on the same goals, we can achieve the extraordinary—on the field and off. From supporting youth sports to responsibly sourcing our products, we strive to make a positive difference in both our local communities and our global operations.

We strive to maintain occupational safety and health standards that equal or exceed best practices in the industry and extend our safety culture throughout our supply chain.
Responsible manufacturing and sourcing is built on a foundation of respect for the people who make our products. At Founder Sport Group, we’re focused on implementing a best-in-class Social Compliance program guided by internationally recognized labor and human rights standards as well as industry best practices. The cornerstone for our Social Compliance program is our Founder Sport Group Code of Conduct, which we manage through internal and supplier education, risk assessments (including unannounced factory inspections), strong partnerships with our suppliers, collaboration, and promoting best practices in our supply chain.
