Corporate Social Responsibility
Everyone has the right to a decent life and a worriless childhood. Our social responsibility should especially never stop at limits. In our supply chain management, we actively ensure that our suppliers comply with social standards and the prohibition of child labor in production. In addition, we have joined the Business Social Compliance Initiative (BSCI) as a global company. The BSCI is a cross-industry Europe-wide initiative to improve working conditions in production centers in developing and emerging countries with the aim of facilitating socially responsible acting in a globalized economy. Another focus of the BSCI is the support of the affected production companies in adapting to international labor standards. More than 600 companies from the trading and manufacturing sectors are organized in the BSCI.
In order to achieve the targets, independent accredited companies are commissioned to execute audits of social standards at the production facilities. Violations against the code of conduct lead to a BSCI exclusion.
