We see it as our entrepreneurial duty to operate in an appropriate and responsible manner worldwide.
As part of an international group, we believe quality, social standards and sustainability are inseparably linked. Together with our suppliers, we implement strict adherence to the standards and requirements of amfori. The code of conduct specified therein serves as the standard against which we measure our actions. It comprises social responsibility activities in relation to fair business practices, as well as transparency, reporting and information. We carry out audits in the home countries of our producers and suppliers in line with the amfori 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 amfori requirements continue to be met over time thanks to our own and neutral inspectors and their auditing process. These include: TÜV Rheinland Group, TÜV Nord/Süd Group, SGS, Bureau Veritas, ELEVATE, Intertek, UL VS Limited - Responsible Sourcing, ABS Quality Evaluation and ALGI.
