Social and environmental standards are our norm. Everywhere and anywhere.

We face up to the challenges posed by the complex supply chains in the textile industry with a clear commitment to the standards of sustainable trading. That’s why we rely on recognised initiatives and organisations to ensure that our production partners comply with social and environmental standards.

We guarantee with amfori BSCI (Business Social Compliance Initiative) audits that the social requirements set out by amfori (payment of the statutory minimum wage, compliance with working hour regulations, prohibition of child labour) are checked by external testing institutes.

We work to protect the environment by backing the Greenpeace initiative Detox. The focus here is on actively supporting the elimination of toxic chemicals from textile production. Transparency in the supply chain is a top priority for us, which is why we are working with the amfori BEPI (Business Environmental Performance Initiative) on mapping and monitoring our textile value-added chains.

As a signatory of the Bangladesh Accord on Fire and Building Safety, we also support the continuous improvement of the safety of workers at our production sites in Bangladesh.

Global success comes from global presence.

For us, proximity to our manufacturers is a guarantee for long-term business relationships and joint development. Our Group’s Corporate Responsibility teams in the various

procurement countries work to improve the social working conditions on site and also help our production partners to develop further by means of regular internal visits.

Certified responsibility suits us!

    Global Content Standard (GOTS)

    GOTS is the world’s leading standard governing the processing of textiles and organic fibres. Companies along the entire value-added chain are subject to an annual on-site inspection and must hold a valid certificate. Only then can the final products be classified as GOTS-certified. Our use of the GOTS label particularly enables us to demonstrate full transparency in our production chain, as the cotton can be traced back to its origin.

    We are also committed to disclosing the chemical additives used and acknowledging our company’s compliance with relevant environmental and social criteria (Certified by Ecocert Greenlife, license no. 151896).
