Code of conduct
We are committed too ethical, legal and socially responsible practices. We only do business with suppliers who share these principles and who guarantee these are maintained in the production of the goods we offer to you. This includes the upholding of human rights, worker’s rights, social responsibility and environmental protection. The code of conduct agreed with all our suppliers ensures that the products we offer are produced by a workforce who are paid fairly, treated with respect and provided with a safe and healthy working environment. We do not tolerate any form of child, forced or involuntary labour, nor any discrimination based on race, colour, religion, sex, age, physical disability or origin. Our suppliers are strictly bound not to subject employees to threats of violence, physical punishment, confinement or any other forms of sexual or psychological harassment or abuse. Environmental responsibility is also of continuous consideration in our choice of suppliers. We prefer to work with those who are committed to ongoing improvements and investments that help its preservation. To ensure our suppliers adhere to all these requirements, we regularly visit their facilities to carry out systematic and extensive reviews in which we perform both Social Compliance Audits (based upon SA 8000 standards) and Environmental Compliance Audits. The emphasis on responsible practices throughout our supply chain demonstrates our commitment to ensure that our products and services comply with prevailing EU Product, safety, health and environmental regulations.
