Sharing our caring
Our Code of Conduct expresses our attitude towards human rights, human safety and health as well as the local environment. It applies to all production sites – below you find an extract.
Taking care of people
Part of our Code of conduct says, that we will not do business with anyone using child labour. All children should be protected from economic exploitation. We want them to be educated and not exposed to anything, which can harm their physical, mental, spiritual, moral or social development.
Nor do we accept forced labour or any use of illegal restrictions. People need fair and clear contracts, and corporal punishment, mental or physical coercion or any kind of abuse or humiliation of employees are of course not allowed.
Among all our ethical standards, we also stress avoiding engagement in any kind of discrimination on the grounds of sex, religion, race etc. People should be hired based on their working capabilities and skills.
Taking care of people engaged in our production means securing a healthy working environment, too. Our Code of conduct dictates appropriate sanitary facilities, access to drinking water, and a constant focus on the workers’ safety.
Taking care of environment
We want the climate gasses to be reduced to a minimum. Therefore, we expect our production sites to produce according to environmental laws and in consideration to the local environment. Production waste must be handled in an environmentally good and safe manner, and discharge from production to the outer environment must be subject to controls.
To ensure, that all relevant environmental laws are fulfilled, we live up to the EU Directive REACH.
