The Company’s policy is a zero tolerance towards the use of corruption, bribery and child labor.
Suppliers are obliged to ensure that materials used in production originate from animals that have been treated in accordance with applicable rules, conventions and standards.
Our efforts are prioritized in those countries in the supply chain where it is known that potential human rights violations are most likely to occur.
Internally, we also work with the working environment, as the employees constitute a significant knowledge resource for the group. Efforts are being made to identify risk areas in order to ensure the working environment and identify competence-critical areas. We continuously ensure that all safety rules are complied with and the individual workplaces have undergone workplace assessment with a number of improvements as a result.
In March 2021, we adapted our Code of Conduct, to ensure that our suppliers meet our standards as a result of the FN's global goals described above. All our partners have signed and undertake to follow the standards in our Code of Conduct.
A further initiative to ensure that our suppliers live up to our requirements for human and employee rights, we have clarified which factories we get produced at, and which of the factories receive annual audits. It turns out that most of our suppliers receive annual audits. Which assures us that they follow our requirements & guidelines.
We work closely with our industry organization Dansk Mode and Textil on CSR / sustainability, which has great expertise and many years of experience in the field. In addition, we have become part of Sustainawear, which is a platform that helps companies with CSR and sustainability. Here you can get lots of inspiration and help on how to approach the new tasks. Sustainawear’s concept is built around the elephant below. Which symbolizes the different areas one can work with and in what order they recommend.
