For the past 30 years, we’ve been supplying the UK’s leading organisations with quality, ethically-sourced badges and keyrings. We take ethical trading very seriously, and we’re committed to our strict ethical trading policies and auditing procedures.
At Rocket Badge, we’ve always taken ethical trading seriously. Since our beginnings in 1987, we’ve adhered to stringent ethical policies. Corporate social responsibility is an integral part of our mission and we work hard to ensure that our clients receive high-quality products, whilst protecting the human rights of everyone involved in the process.
To uphold our commitment, we require our suppliers to pass a rigorous set of audits that ensure that our standards of safety, human rights and corporate responsibility are met and maintained.
Additionally, as Sedex (Supplier Ethical Database Exchange) members, we keep up-to-date on the latest policies involving ethical sourcing and trading and continually work to uphold them.
And as more brands and consumers take stock to protect the planet, we continually seek to expand our offering of eco-friendly merchandise, while also reducing our own impact on the environment through more sustainable manufacturing processes.
“Social responsibility is at the forefront of everything we do. When it comes to human rights and the planet's wellbeing, there's no such thing as taking a shortcut.”
Though many brands rely on promotional merchandise to bolster their marketing efforts, supply chains are often complex and high-risk. It requires a significant amount of work and commitment to ensure that merchandise is produced in the most humane and ethical environments.
At Rocket Badge, we promise to:
Conduct supplier audits to the Ethical Trading Initiative (ETI) base code standards where possible, such as Sedex Members Ethical Trade Audit (SMETA) and the Business Social Compliance Initiative (BSCI)

Terminate relationships with suppliers that fail to improve their performance in line with an action plan or violate our supplier code of conduct.
Adopt a zero-tolerance policy towards Modern Slavery of any kind within our operations and supply chain and report any evidence of forced labour to relevant authorites. Click here to download the policy document.
Encourage all employees to report any concerns relating to unlawful conduct, malpractice, dangers to the public or the environment, and any other matter of a serious nature.
Ensure suppliers adhere to the highest standards of ethics and require them to declare they provide safe working conditions, treat workers with dignity and respect and act ethically and within the law of their country in their use of labour.
Demonstrate a commitment to working with suppliers to achieve improvements in ethical and environmental standards and rectify any non-compliance.
Require our ethical, environmental and product safety procedures to undergo constant review and internal assessment by qualified auditors.
At Rocket Badge, we recognise that the manufacturing process can have harmful effects on the environment. That’s why we take measured steps to reduce our impact on the planet by incorporating sustainable practices into our supply chain and empowering clients to make greener choices with their promotional merchandise.
Today, many of our most popular badges and keyrings can be created in a more earth-friendly way. That’s why we strive to offer a wide-range of eco-friendly materials and reduce our impact on the planet during the manufacturing process where possible.
Many organisations have environmental targets to meet, and we want to help our clients meet these values by providing high-quality promotional merchandise that doesn’t negatively impact the planet.
