We’ve made social and environmental standards a standard. Everywhere.
Quality, social standards and sustainability are the law for us – regardless of what the respective valid laws are around the world. Together with our suppliers, we have committed ourselves to meeting the goals and requirements of the Business Social Compliance Initiative (BSCI). What they say goes. This means we take social responsibility regarding fair business practices as well as transparency, reporting and information. We conduct audits in the countries of our manufacturers and suppliers according to the BSCI qualification and auditing programme.
Should a supplier show to not meet the requirements the first time around, we actively support and advise him as a way to contribute to an improvement in working conditions. What’s more, we guarantee that the BSCI requirements continue to be met over time thanks to our own and neutral inspectors and their auditing process. These are, among others: TÜV-Rheinland Group, TÜV-Nord and TÜV-Süd Group, SGS, Bureau Veritas, HKQAA, Intertek, Eurocert, ABS Quality Evaluation, ALGI and CISE.
