Responsible supply chain
Responsible, transparent and traceable supply chains form one of our CSR focus areas and are important for our stakeholders.
Our local purchasing offices help us to work closely with our suppliers to help them implement our policies and monitor the implementation of our policies through our own local audits. In addition, the operations are monitored by amfori BSCI with a third party factory audits, which results we will publish. In addition, Accord checks on fire and building safety are being carried out in Bangladesh, due to the safety risk in the country caused by poor factory buildings.
We want to communicate transparently about sustainability issues. That's why the country of manufacture is labeled for all our own fashion brand products, and we publish the factories and suppliers we use.
Our stakeholders, including customers and governmental and non-governmental organisations are showing increasing interest in our work in the supply chain. The questions raised include our buying practices, the countries of manufacture, our Supplier Code of Conduct, the right to freedom of association, living wages, human rights assessments, our own audits, and remediation for human rights violations. We aim to answer these questions in our annual Corporate Responsibility Report and on this website.
